Playing philosophy
Playing philosophy

Stars Of Africa Is Football Academy nurtures young people into top footballers and individuals both on and off the pitch. Our philosophy aims to give young talent a chance to flourish and strongly encourage values such as desire, respect, teamwork, and effort. We strive to play an attractive brand of football that focuses on an elaborate build-up from the back together with attack-minded ball possession that is efficient in front of goal and at the same time encourages players to express their creativity.


Our objective is to develop complete players that can initiate play, participate in the build-up and finish off the play. That said, winning is not the ultimate goal but rather for players to take their learnings from training and translate that in on match day. Players are guided by Stars of Africa coaches, who support them with decision making, encourage them to take calculated risks, and ensure that the players themselves are always at the heart of their own learning process.
