Program Information

Open to boys and girls: born in 2015, 2016, and 2017

What is the philosophy of Shooting Stars? Our ball mastery sessions use skill-based games to promote individual time on the ball and real PASSION for playing soccer.

What do I bring? It is recommended that players bring water. They are also welcome to bring a ball, but there will be plenty of balls provided at the field.

What do I wear? Wearing cleats and shinguards under soccer socks is encouraged.

What are the Program Hours? (Fall, Winter, Spring) See the updated Shooting Stars schedule listed in the next section below. 

Play Dates are offered in Fall and Spring: Every Saturday morning for the duration of the fall and spring programs, players have the option to play small-sided games to show their skills and score a ton of goals. Play Dates are not offered during the Winter program.

I have more questions about registration, who should I contact? For more information please contact the Shooting Stars program at stars@mvlasc.org.
