About Us

Founder Mark Whitwood established and launched Active Soccer in 2005 with the help and support of the Prince’s Trust.

Since the first ever coaching session in 2005 thousands of young children have participated in our Active Programmes. The Active name has become recognised and renowned for providing Fun, Healthy and Inclusive opportunities for young people to get involved in football.

Active Soccer offers opportunities for children to gain their first football experience from the age of 4.

Our services have extended overseas, we deliver our popular soccer school in Finland and work with exchange children from Asia.

The Active Soccer team has grown through our football only franchise opportunity providing a platform for coaches with a passion for coaching and development to join our network and work together to help provide high quality coaching in a fun environment to their local community.

Confidence – Believing in yourself that you can achieve

Healthy - We recognise the importance of children leading active and healthy lifestyles.

Inclusive - Our team is trained to make sure that everyone  is involved and made to feel welcome.

Growth – Viewing challenges as opportunities we encourage progression. Praising efforts, being positive and believing you can become the best version of you!

Resilience – To create resilient individuals who always try their hardest and never give up

Fun – We believe children and adults who enjoy themselves and have fun, will learn more and want to keep taking part.
