GOLD STAR TRAINING PROGRAMS

Gold Star Soccer has built a year-round age specific soccer curriculum around the physical, psychological, and developmental needs for young children ages 2 - 12. Our classes are well suited for the first time soccer player, while still being fun and engaging for players who have already had some soccer experience. We will give brief and direct instructions to allow for more free play for players to experiment with the soccer ball.

 

Gold Star Soccer will emphasize motor skills development, character building, creative play, and enjoyment of the sport. We will teach the fundamentals of soccer and encourage each player to become comfortable and confident with the soccer ball. Each player will experience a raised self-esteem and most importantly, experience the fun and enjoyment of the game. Our nurturing approach creates the best environment for young soccer players to grow. Individual development will vary.
