​FC Start is our football club side of Start Sport Academy for 5-18 year olds.

We are an FA Charter Standard club with 11 teams playing in leagues across Liverpool as well as weekly training sessions. We have over 90 players registered to either our training or teams programme.

Our philisophy is to provide professional coaching within a fun environment.

We believe that players should be allowed to learn the game with the freedom to not worry about making mistakes, we make sure we cater our sessions to the individual needs added to our fun environment we believe this gives all the players the platform to improve.

All our coaches are FA and UEFA qualifed, with some having experience of working with professional football club academies and development centres.

We believe the coaching and the environment we provide it in, is unique wihin grassroots football and this has enabled the club to grow massively over the last 5 years with varying degress of success from 10 teams playing in leagues, to many players being either on trial or signed by professional academies.

We have good links with both Liverpool FC and Everton FC amongst other professional clubs which enables us to take teams into their academies to play against their teams.

The club is totally inclusive to everyone and if we cannot fit anyone into one of our teams, we will look to start a new team as we are passionate about everyone being able to participate and play the sport they love.
