Prostars Football School aims to bring a structured and fun form of physical learning and development to all children, both boys and girls, from all faith and cultural backgrounds and allow them to take part in all aspects of our coaching regardless of any physical or mental disabilities at a price that excludes no families on low incomes, while still offering the highest levels of qualified instruction from a trusted and certified team of coaches. Safety and protection of all children is of the highest priority along with physical and mental wellbeing.
All our sessions are planned following academy guidelines and logged prior to their delivery so that they be appropriate for both the group and each individual’s needs. Participants get one ball/racket per child to allow children to progress at their own pace, while team sharing and social interaction are still encouraged. A strong emphasis is placed on progression to help adopt advancement in their knowledge and learning.
Prostars have a non-exclusion policy (as long as all children and parents abide by our codes of conduct). We openly encourage children from all backgrounds to take part and actively teach them against discrimination and promote social and emotional development. We also try to keep a wide and varied range of coaches made up of both male and female staff from as many ethnic groups as possible.
Our aim is to offer the best level of qualified coaches with a high level of understanding both in the topics they coach and of the children within the group. Certified qualifications along with ongoing training for all staff is essential to ensure the highest and safest levels of education to the participants. All coaches hold F.A. qualifications, CRB and child protection certification, as well as public liability insurance through the F.A. coaches association.
Safety is a top priority and risk assessments are carried out on all new venues and prior to all sessions. Child protection best practices are followed and suitable ratio of coaches to children is always observed, equipment is always checked to ensure it is appropriate and meets the standards in terms of purpose and needs. Any child protection alerts are taken with the utmost importance and dealt with based on child protection guidelines advice.
Fun and Education
All sessions are organised to be fun and engaging. No child is forced to perform or participate and is also taught the importance of healthy living and diet, avoiding obesity and anti-social behaviour, with all learning appropriate to the children and their parents.
