Who are Rising Stars?

Rising Stars Football Academy provides football activities across Birmingham for young people of all ethnic and social backgrounds, helping them to pursue their passion for football and to gain the skills, confidence, and grit needed to achieve their highest potential in life.

Rising Stars work with hundreds of boys and girls (aged 4– 16) in 5 different areas of Birmingham (Selly Oak, Hodge Hill, Small Heath, Sparkbrook, and Aston) each year, currently coaching over 300 each week (with many more on waiting lists). They don’t just train young people how to play football better however – they use football as a tool to change lives for the better. Rising Stars want to improve the life chances of the young people of Aston and across Birmingham, who they think all have the potential to achieve and to be successful, whatever their background.  All children are provided with high-quality football training sessions, and this high standard of efficient and practical training helps to motivate the youngsters, promotes the development of their confidence and life skills, and develops them into keen learners.

 

If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?

The £2000 funding will provide more equipment and football sessions for the Children and Young Adults, and also provide more Life Skills workshops for them, focussing on a range of topics such as Mental Health.

The funding can also provide the chance for the Young Adults and Coaches to obtain Football training qualifications, and help them progress.
