Shooting Stars will give young players the edge!

The Program

The program for these young children will be catered for in three levels: Beginners Stage, Intermediate Stage and Advance Stage.  It’s important that we acknowledge that Shooting Stars players are placed in their age appropriate skilled groups.


Beginners Stage

Balancing, hand eye-foot co-ordination; explore qualities of a rolling ball.  Concentrating on improving individual skills, dribbling, stopping, turning, directional changing and beginning stages with dribbling in straight lines.

The players to feel and acknowledge the touch of a ball at all times.  Experimenting how to stop and go with the ball through game scenarios.  Introduction to Small Sided games.

Intermediate Stage

Extending dribbling skills with angled target zones this will incorporate correctional technique with ball control within dribbling activities.  Experimenting with both feet - left and right, stepping techniques - teaching the child to look up while dribbling the ball.  Passing in twos, follow ball with your eyes, move to get behind and in line with the ball, not to stretch for it.

Each stage has a variety of drills and Small Sided games that will challenge the player to further his or her technique. 


At the end of each 8-week block each player will receive a certificate of completion.  Shooting Stars program runs parallel with the 4-terms of a school year - excluding school holidays.

We look forward to seeing your child participate in Adelaide’s most successful soccer development programs for all ages and levels.
