Testimonials

“Having two children (son & daughter) attend the Alberta Mini Stars program we have found it to be a very rewarding soccer experience for both. With each session having an individualized focus on a specific soccer skill-set we could see the improvement in our kids as they executed their newly learned skills with their own teams. The opportunity to play with a multitude of players from all over the city has given our kids the chance to form new friendships with kids they have often played against from many different teams. Events such as the Mini Stars Showcase and the Residential Camp are something our children look forward to as it’s a very unique soccer experience. Our kids have trained with and learned from certified soccer coaches in a fun and challenging soccer environment.”

“The Ministars Program and Showcase event was a unique and rewarding experience for both my son and daughter who play U12. The program was extremely well organized, in a beautiful facility and the instruction and play was fun and challenging. The players developed and honed their skills and received thoughtful coaching. The Ministars Showcase was an excellent event which provided the players a unique opportunity to play alongside other players from all over Alberta. New friendships were made, excellent soccer was played and fun was had! Thank you to the ASA for putting on such a tremendous program. We would definitely participate again!”

“We would like to share our thoughts on how impressed we were with the Mini Stars program and Mini Stars showcase. It was a great opportunity for our son to be able to participate with motivated players. The program gave him the opportunity to work on his skills and improve his game. He loved the extra time on the field playing his favourite sport. On return from the Mini Stars showcase he couldn’t stop talking about how much fun it was.. He was a little star struck with the high level experienced players and coaches who came out to the showcase. He loved how they shared their knowledge and passion for soccer. He felt the time there was an amazing experience and enjoyed meeting and playing with other players from Alberta & B.C.”
