Soccer Courses

Sunderland, South Tyneside and County Durham.

We run a huge range of football and sports sessions across the North East giving everyone the chance to take part, develop, have fun and be part of our team. All of our coaches are qualified to at least FA Level 2 which means that your youngster receives high quality training and support from a professional in their sport.

We also invest a lot of time in developing our staff, with ongoing training and quality checks ensuring that all sessions employ the best coaching techniques and methods at a consistently high standard.

When your youngster joins our team they join our player pathway – we’ll find a level that challenges them but which they can enjoy – and gifted and talented players can progress into Sunderland AFC’s Academy of Light or the Sunderland and Gateshead Regional Talent Club.
