Do you have girls-only travel teams?

Yes, we have girls-only Soccer Stars United Travel Teams (dependent on region). 

Do you have girls-only classes?

Yes, Soccer Stars United Development classes are co-ed. We also offer a select number of girls-only classes and travel team options. If you are interested, you can set up a private girls-only class. Please fill out our Private Class Form to set up a class.

Are your programs co-ed?

Yes, our programs are co-ed unless otherwise noted in the class description. As most of our programs are instructional, we believe there is a greater benefit to co-ed learning and social development.

What is the age range for your development and travel programs?

Soccer Stars United Development program runs from U5-U10, and our travel program runs from U8-U18 (age dependent on region)

Do you have development and travel programs for more competitive-level soccer?

Yes! Our Soccer Stars United program offers development and competitive travel programs depending on your region. Learn more about Soccer Stars United’s development and travel programs here.

Will the group play games during the class?

Yes. There will be an opportunity to play games; however, these will be small-sided to maximize touches on the ball and involvement. Our philosophy is that players learn best through playing the game.

Do players need any equipment to participate?

Players who join the Development Program in the Fall season will have the SSU Development Program Uniform Pack included with their season enrollment. This includes a full set of uniforms (Jersey, Shorts, Socks and shin guards). A soccer ball is also included in the pack. If you join the program during the winter or spring season you will be invited to purchase the uniform pack separately. We ask that players bring a ball, shin guards, and water to every class. 

What will they learn during a training session?

Each class will feature 4 components: warm up and ball mastery followed by the introduction of a theme or skill development topic. The players will participate in a conditioned game where they will have the opportunity to emp;loy the skill or theme in a game-like scenario. The final component of the session will be a small sided game where the players enjoy open scrimmages and have fun.


How long are the classes?

Each session is a minimum of 60 minutes. We have a select number of classes that last 90 minutes.

How old does my child have to be to participate?

We work with players ages 4.5 and up.

Does my child need to be at a certain skill level to participate?

For the experience to be as beneficial as possible for each player, we expect that participants have some prior soccer experience. Once enrolled, the player’s first class will also serve as an evaluation. The coach will provide feedback to the program administration regarding the player’s performance in class. In the event a player doesn’t meet the evaluation criteria – the player will either be guided (back) into a traditional Super Soccer Stars class or a refund will be offered.

Do you offer goalkeeper training?

Yes, we do.

Do you offer position-specific training for more advanced players?

Yes. We can tailor sessions to focus on specific areas of the game. For example, goal scoring, attacking, midfield play, ball mastery, defending, etc.

What is the minimum number of players in a group?

We can work with 1 player for a 1-on-1 session and a maximum of 14 players in each group.

What is Soccer Stars United’s approach?

Soccer Stars United focuses on developing key individual 1v1 techniques, improving players’ employment of skills at speed, and developing the confidence to unlock each player’s true potential.  

    • Low player-to-coach ratio. This allows each player to receive individual attention during class and advance at their own pace.
    • Highly trained and certified coaches with ongoing training. We employ the best youth soccer coaches in the country. What makes our team so great is our ongoing coach training and certification. Each season, our Coaching Department reviews every coach multiple times to ensure all coaches are updated with the latest trends and information. We also incentivize our coaches to reach higher levels of coach status within the company through specific goal-setting and national certifications.

What is Soccer Stars United?

Soccer Stars United is a development and travel program that has a dual philosophy; fostering a lifelong passion for the game of soccer while maintaining a specific focus on player development. We create an environment where players can learn, develop, and fall in love with the game of soccer regardless of their skill level.
