It was an invaluable opportunity for my daughter to meet and play with players from other teams and clubs in a supportive and encouraging environment. She made a lot of friends and so when she plays against them in league games, they are friendly rivals rather than opponents. This is something she can’t get anywhere else. Thank you for making this possible for her.”

Testimonials

We’ve had all our four of our daughters go through the Mini Stars program and it has had a major positive impact on their soccer development. The extra training has been incredibly beneficial and really improved their skills. The coaches have been excellent and the kids are encouraged to take risks, which builds their confidence and creativity as they learn to become better soccer players. It has been a great experience for the girls to meet and play soccer with other motivated, high-performance players from a variety of different clubs from all over the city and many new friendships were made. Most importantly, Mini Stars was consistently described by them all as FUN!
 
The Mini Stars residential camp was their first experience playing soccer away from home and was another growing experience. Being surrounded by like-minded kids really challenged our girls and motivated them to progress in soccer. The Mini Stars showcase and graduation game was a nice conclusion to the program and the girls really felt a sense of accomplishment.  Finally, Mini Stars was their first glimpse of future opportunities available through Alberta Soccer and Canada Soccer.  Mini Stars prepared them well for these other soccer programs, which included the ASA Winter training program, the Alberta South Provincial Team, the Alberta South WFC REX team, and, for one of our girls, even the Whitecaps Girls Elite REX team in Vancouver (Canada Soccer Supercentre).  For kids who love soccer, we highly recommend Mini Stars!

“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.”
