“Rising Stars has been a great experience for our daughter. Red Star has done an outstanding job of introducing her to a higher level of soccer while still keeping things fun. The coaches are great with the kids and the program blends an introduction to technical skills and game strategy into their drills so that the kids are learning to think and play like soccer players should without even realizing it. We have an older son in Red Star, and after experiencing the extremely high level of coaching offered as part of Red Star’s player development program, we jumped at the chance to get our daughter into Rising Stars. The best part about it is that she’s so excited and having such a good time, that she already wants to sign up for another session. This is exactly what we’d hoped for.”
