programs overview

Do I need any equipment for my child to participate?

All you need is a soccer ball for class, and we provide the rest. You can purchase a Soccer Stars branded soccer ball from our online store.

What will they be doing and learning during class?

At Soccer Stars, we use the soccer ball as the vehicle to help children improve their soccer and gross motor skills, develop self-confidence and physical literacy, and hone socialization skills. Dynamic coaches work with small groups of players to develop these skills and teamwork in a fun, non-competitive, educational environment. We focus on learning a new skill each week with fun activities and drills.

How long are the classes?

Class Time Lengths based on Age Range:

    • Ages 12 months to 2: 40 minutes
    • Ages 3 to 4: 45 minutes
    • Ages 4 to 5:  50 minutes
    • Ages 5 to 12+:  60 minutes

How old does my child have to be to participate?

Soccer Stars offers a crib-to-college player pathway starting with our Parent & Me program for ages 1-2 years old, Super Soccer Stars for ages 2-10 years old, and Soccer Stars United Development and Travel programs for ages U5-U18.

What is Soccer Stars program philosophy and purpose?

Our mission is to empower kids through soccer and sports by teaching them how to have fun while learning the fundamentals. We use soccer to build self-confidence and develop teamwork in a positive environment.

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

Absolutely not. Whether a beginner or ready for competitive play, Soccer Stars has an appropriate program for your child. Many of our program ages overlap so that you and your child can be comfortable with the level of play during your session. Here is an overview of our program offerings:

    • Parent & Me – Ages 12 months to 2: A pre-soccer music and movement program for toddlers ages 1-2. This fun-filled class – taught by experienced instructors and their puppet friends, Mimi and Pepe – focuses on balance, coordination, upper and lower-body exercises, cognitive skills, and more.
    • Super Soccer Stars – Ages 2 to 10: A youth soccer program that teaches the fundamentals of the sport in a fun, non-competitive, educational environment. Our unique curriculum uses positive reinforcement and a low child-to-coach ratio to ensure each child feels supported and confident in their own abilities
    • Soccer Stars United Development – U5 to U10: Development is the natural continuation and advanced program of Super Soccer Stars. Players are gradually introduced to new technical skills, tactical elements, and team concepts as they improve soccer skills and reach program milestones.

Soccer Stars United Travel – U8 to U18: A soccer program unlike any other, with a philosophy centered on providing a nurturing yet challenging environment that encourages every player to express themselves, be creative, and take educated risks on the field. The program focuses on developing character, communication, game insight, technique, and tactical awareness.

What makes Soccer Stars right for my child?

Several aspects of Soccer Stars make our programs unique:

    • Low kid-to-coach ratio. This allows each player to receive individual attention during class and advance at their own pace.
    • Age-specific classes. We group our youngest classes, ages 12 months to 5 years old, within 1 year of their own age and have specific lesson plans built to their developmental needs. Our older players will also enjoy playing with children of a similar age during their classes.
    • Crib-to-College Player Pathway. Starting with our Parent & Me classes at the age of 12 months and leading to our high school travel teams (New York only), Soccer Stars can support your player at every stage of their soccer journey. Here is what our player pathway looks like:
      1. Parent & Me – Ages 12 months to 2
      2. Super Soccer Stars – Ages 2 to 12
      3. Soccer Stars United Development – U5 to U12
      4. Soccer Stars United Travel – U8 to U18 (Miami and New York only)

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 up to date 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.
