Youth competitive- Program Description
Red Star Soccer Academy is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to youth player development. We offer world-class training for eager young athletes who aspire to reach their full potential in soccer. We are affiliated with the US Soccer Federation and US Club Soccer. Red Star teams compete in Nor Cal Premier League and US Club Soccer sanctioned tournaments.
Red Star competitive teams are coached by licensed professional coaches. The coaching staff is carefully selected to meet the needs and capacities of the players. The Red Star coaching staff is led by a nationally licensed and recognized Technical Director who oversees and monitors the effectiveness of Red Star coaches as they implement an age and developmentally tuned curriculum.
Open Tryouts are held twice annually, typically in June for the Fall season and December for the Spring. Players will be notified after tryouts if they have earned a spot on a team within their age group. Final team rosters will be made following the conclusion of the Red Star tryouts training session.
At any time, drop-in assessments are available. To arrange a drop-in assessment, please contact the Technical Director.
All soccer decisions, including player placement/movement and playing up an age group, are made by Academy coaches.
The competitive soccer calendar runs between August 1st and July 31st. The Academy’s annual calendar is divided into two 4.5-month playing seasons with optional 2-month rest, recovery and cross-training sessions between.
PLEASE NOTE: Red Star encourages children to explore and enjoy multiple sports. During the primary soccer season (fall season), Red Star expects that children participating in multiple sports will make soccer their first priority when schedule conflicts arise. Missed practices and games due to sports conflicts are discouraged because of the impact on both the player and the team, both in training and in competition.
