Enriching Children’s Lives Through the Game of Soccer

Soccerscool believes in giving young children a fun and positive introduction into the game of soccer.

Whether they dream of being a professional footballer or simply want to have fun with their friends, taking the right approach to the game when children are young sets the stage for a lifetime of enjoyment.

The Soccerscool Development Pathway provides a roadmap for young players who want to play soccer at the Recreational, Competitive or Academy levels, with the aim of encouraging lifelong participation.

For players who join Soccerscool, many of whom are being introduced to the game for the first time, the goal of our approach is simple. There is only one ball, so you need to learn to keep it!


To create a fun, professional environment that stimulates and challenges young players to maximize their potential as footballers.

Provide children with an experience that teaches them valuable life skills associated with playing a team sport such as competitiveness, resilience, dedication, teamwork, respect, hard work and discipline.

Educate children in the virtues of taking responsibility on and off the field of play.

Raise standards at the grassroots level in relation to the coaching, playing and watching of children’s football.
