Europeese Styl Voor De Training Van Kinder

Established in 1995 Soccer Kids is one of the largest and longest established independent football schools in the UK and although previously based throughout the UK we now operate solely from our new base at Tapton School Sport's Complex, Crosspool, Sheffield, England.
See Information on the main menu for more details.

This Sheffield School is also the Home of SSD (Systematic Structured Development) which was created by the Director of SK (Eddy Whyte - former player and coach with Borussia Monchengladbach and PSV Eindhoven) and now used worldwide by many of the top professional clubs as part of their junior and senior player development structure.

SK Sheffield
Trains between 90 - 110 children every Saturday morning - 43 weeks of the year

SK Sheffield
To date (August 2019), a total of 75 children (age 8 to 11) have joined professional club academies direct from the Sheffield SK School



From 7th September 2019, start of New season, the weekly fees will be as follows:
Age 5:          £4.00 per session
Age 6 - 14:   £5.00 per session
Family rate (where more than one player from the same family) £4.00 per player  


From the start of next season (7th September 2019) the minimum starting age will increase from 4 to 5 - existing 4 year olds will be accommodated within the younger training group. 
New Training Times - age 5/6 from 9am to 10.30 and age 6 to 14 from 9am to 11am - any 6 year olds in the younger group are entitled to move up to the age 6/8 Group at 10.30am.


We are currently 3 coaches down due to long-term injuries and work commitments so therefore desperately need NEW Volunteer Coaches to help out with all of our Training Groups. The success of Soccer Kids has always been based around 'Parental Involvement' so give it go, you may be a natural. Just speak to any of the existing coaches.


New players age 4 to 14 are welcome to come along any Saturday Morning (see Training Schedule) for a FREE FIRST SESSION.
