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!
