Yes every team has at least one FA Level 1 qualified coach and we only level 2 or UEFA B qualified coaches with tonnes of experience for this programme. Your little superstars really will be in the very best possible hands to begin their football journey.

Is it for boys and girls?

Yes definitely!

How come you provide free coaching when nobody else does?

Because we’re fully committed to making sure we can give the children of Chester le Street the very best  introduction to football possible.

Do the kids enjoy it?

We certain hope so!!! Come and find out for yourself! We structured the programme with kids in mind, they’ll get a progression chart, stickers and earn rewards for attendance and great training.

What happens if my child is not any good at football?

They learn and they get better with the aim to be best possible footballer they can be.

Are the numbers limited

Yes we have a strict quota on numbers unfortunately and we work on a first come-first served basis. We will hold a reserve list when the course gets full.

My son or daughter already does paid football training does it matter?

No not at all

Is there any restrictions on the 30 weeks free coaching?

The only restriction is the end date. Once your child finishes reception the superstars programme ends (and begins for the new reception year).

What happens after the 30 free weeks?

We hope the all the kids want to stay together and form mini-soccer teams here at Chester le Street Town FC. Chester le Street Town FC has over 20 youth teams already and have a very well established club structure and great ties to our first teams, We’re also a Charter Standard Community Club, which is the FA’s highest award and the only club in the area to achieve this.

Alongside the training for the kids we’ll also put on a separate event for all the parents/guardians to introduce them to club, outline the club philosophies and explain important stuff like safeguarding and the important role you, as a parent, has in your child’s development.

I heard you are building a new club house at Moor Park – will it affect the Superstars?

Yes that’s right we are! At this moment we don’t expect any major issues (maybe some parking issues during construction – we’ll see) but rest assured we’ll do our very best to make sure the kids can keep training!
