Mini Stars Program
Alberta Soccer welcomes mistakes with a smile!
The Alberta Soccer Association Mini Stars Program is for boys and girls within hosting communities who are at the Learning-to-Train Stage of Canada Soccer’s Long Term Player Development Plan.
The program is viewed as an “Introduction to Excellence” Program. Mini Stars Participants typically have aspirations of participating in Alberta Soccer’s Provincial Training Program.
The Mini Stars program consists of 10 Sessions, plus access to our Mini Stars Showcase in April and Residential program in May.

WHAT IS THE RESIDENTIAL CAMP?
The 2017 Mini Stars Residential Camp is an ‘Introduction to Excellence’ program offered by Alberta Soccer’s Grassroots Development department. The program is designed to provide our Mini Stars’ athletes with an opportunity to experience a Provincial Team Program training environment and thereby introduce them to their next potential step on their soccer journey.
The Residential Camp program supports the ‘whole’ athlete philosophy – through on and off field sessions that aim at advancing the technical, tactical, physical, and mental development of the ‘player’. The weekend will be a mixture of strongly structured activities including classroom sessions on sport psychology and technical field sessions, while allowing plenty of time for free-play and team building events.
