FC Starz Elite Performance:

At FC Starz, we understand that talent knows no boundaries, and our mission is to provide an elevated platform for exceptionally gifted players to reach their highest potential. We are thrilled to introduce our Elite Performance Structure, a meticulously designed framework that bridges the gap between standard competitive play and academy-level football, nurturing exceptional talent and propelling them toward success.

Excellence in Coaching:

Our unwavering commitment to delivering top-notch coaching standards is evident. We've assembled a team of coaches with extensive experience in academy environments to ensure the highest quality training. Many of our coaches have worked within academies and navigated the journey themselves, uniquely equipping them to guide your child towards their full potential.

Our Elite Performance Structure Includes:

Coach and Children


As part of your FC Starz membership, we offer a weekly Elite Session on Monday nights, known as the "Athlete Development Session." This session is meticulously crafted to enhance various aspects of your child's physical prowess, including physique and cardiovascular health. It's an opportunity for your child to elevate their athletic abilities to the next level, facilitated by expert coaches who understand the demands of elite-level sports.



Our top teams compete in high-level leagues and frequently face academy sides. We also boast strong connections, enabling us to organise showcase games against prestigious academies. This allows your child to play against some of the nation's most elite academy teams. Not only is this an invaluable experience, but it also places your child on the radar of academies, providing them with insights into what it takes to excel in elite football.

Football Parties

These sessions are available upon request; please contact us for further details on coaches offering elite 1-1 services.

Nurturing Dreams: Your Child's Journey to Excellence

At FC Starz, our core ethos centres around instilling a deep love for sports in children. We provide engaging and enjoyable sessions that cultivate a passion for sports. Above all, we prioritize your child's happiness and enjoyment. While we celebrate the aspirations of those aiming for a professional football career, we emphasize the importance of their happiness and well-being.

A Proven Path to Excellence:

Our commitment to excellence goes beyond mere philosophy. Our exceptional coaching standards and a pool of exceptionally talented children have resulted in numerous success stories. Through our extensive industry connections, we've witnessed many young talents secure positions with elite academy clubs such as Fulham, QPR, and Arsenal after successful trials. This success underscores our coaches' and players' dedication and hard work.

Bridging the Gap:

We provide personalised, one-on-one support for children ready to transition to an academy, ensuring a smooth process. This support extends to your child and to you, the parent or guardian, during this exciting period. Additionally, we organize elite sessions and camps designed for exceptionally talented players, ensuring your child's happiness remains our top priority at every step.

The Exciting Opportunity: A Professional Club Approach

If your child has received an offer from a professional club, it marks a pivotal moment in their sporting journey. We share your excitement and are here to guide you through this critical decision-making process. However, it's crucial to understand the options available fully.

Professional clubs typically offer two distinct pathways: Academies and Development Centres. It's essential to grasp the differences between these options. Academies typically operate one team per age group, with children signing season-long contracts at no cost. Development Centres, on the other hand, are often run by the club's community section and involve fees, accommodating more significant numbers of children per year group.

While the prestige of a club's name may be enticing, comprehending the offerings is essential. We firmly believe that FC Starz offers equal, if not greater, opportunities than development centres. We encourage you to make an informed decision that aligns with your child's happiness, readiness for development, and potential relocation challenges.

Guidance and Wisdom

Given these choices, we strongly recommend contacting us or your child's coach directly if your child has been offered an opportunity at an academy or development centre. This will enable us to arrange a comprehensive meeting to thoroughly discuss your child's options. Our co-founders, Luke and Yusuf, will be available to provide their invaluable insights and advice alongside your child's coach. Together, we can make an informed decision that best serves your child's sporting journey.

Please don't hesitate to contact us to initiate this crucial conversation. Your child's dreams are our top priority, and we are dedicated to guiding them every step of the way.
