Kids football coaching services in Portsmouth, Hampshire.


Who we are.

The Soccer Scholar Academy is an energised, creative and vibrant organisation specialising in developing the skills, talent and ability of young players. We believe every kid should have the opportunity to play and, most importantly, enjoy Football. Here at SSA we look to achieve this by producing an environment that creates a strong, positive, learning culture and maximises the opportunity for all kids to reach their potential.

We achieve this through our Fun & Futures Technical Sessions, SSA Tots, 1-2-1’s, Travel Teams and WildCats programmes. Check out Our Services for more information on each of our football initiatives.

Parent Reviews:

Brought my 2 Year Old Daughter to the Tots session, amazing service from the beginning with team members at reception doing a proper induction and explaining how the sessions work before taking you to the pitch. On the pitch was just as great service, The coach was patient and professional with all the kids, ensuring they had fun kept them engaged throughout the whole session. Brilliant club!

My son started in the tots session some years ago and after a short break joined the under 7s team. After seeing him having so much fun at training and games my daughter also wanted to join. Great programme with all the right values being instilled at an early age. Coaches are great and their commitment during such a difficult year has been fantastic.

Extremely professional coaching that allows all kids to develop. The coaches are highly experienced, qualified and knowledgeable, their approach focuses on technical detail, whilst enabling kids to build confidence and knowledge, brilliant.

James Wedge
My son joined SSA as a toddler and now plays for their travel team. Very professional but also lots of fun training session's. Led by trained eager coaches that not only play the game to a high level but want to develop their coaching skills further. The level of coaching and encouragement is second to none. I'd (and have) recommended SSA to friends, family and anyone interested in their child playing football and developing their skills. Thanks to Tom, Jack and all the coaches.
