Future Stars: Ages 6

The goal of our Future Stars Program is to identify young soccer players (born in 2015) who enjoy a more dynamic play environment and to provide a technical pathway for a transition into competitive club soccer with Red Star. The program curriculum emphasizes an introduction to the beautiful game and proper execution of basic techniques such as dribbling, passing, receiving and shooting in a fun yet challenging environment.

Recreational-league players will train in a new and challenging environment to become more technically proficient players. Future Stars sessions will be planned and run by licensed Red Star coaches and will emphasize the enjoyment of the game, as well as sound fundamental soccer skills and technique.

* Fall & Spring seasons

“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.”
