UPDATE (6/29): We are planning on resuming our micro league and technical academy programs in a limited capacity in July. Information will be posted this week. All youth programs will be conducted in accordance with state and county guidelines as well as our Return to Play Handbook.
For over a decade, Starfire has been delivering accessible, world-class soccer programming to our community’s youth. Today, the Starfire Academy is designed to inspire a passion for sport, and empower youth with the life skills to support their development as tomorrow’s leaders. From the soccer field to the classroom, our soccer and STEM programs seek to make our participants as confident joining a robotics or coding club as they are trying out for the soccer team.
In 2018, STEM was added to the Starfire Academy in order to further enhance our community support, and build on our vision of creating a thriving community that ensures equitable opportunities and access for all! Learn more about why STEM was chosen as the first step in extending our reach beyond soccer.
STEM Programs for PreK through 6th Grade
Starfire Academy STEM Programs for Pre-K to 6th grade are designed to ensure equitable opportunities that inspire and empower participants to develop STEM-enabled knowledge, skills, and mindsets needed to thrive in a rapidly changing STEM society. More information.
Starfire Academy soccer programs take a progressive training approach for ages 18 months to 12 years old. We welcomes children of all ages and ability levels, providing curriculums that introduce basic skills and concepts to beginners, as well as giving more advanced players exposure to technical and situational aspects of the game.
Kids Classes for ages 18 months to 6 years
Starfire’s kids classes for ages eighteen months to six years are focused on helping youth develop as players and community members through participation in soccer. Our classes feature fun, interactive and cooperative games that promote problem solving and teamwork. As your child grows and gains experience with the program, the classes will also become more advanced to help develop each child. More information.
Micro Training for ages 4 to 9 years
This fun, recreational indoor program for kids ages 4 to 9 years is coached by Starfire Staff and is a great introduction to team soccer. Young players develop an understanding of the game through a combination of basic technical training and fast-paced game play. This class is best suited for those who have participated in our Stars classes for several sessions or those who have an intermediate level of soccer experience. More information.
Technical & Tactical Training for ages 7 to 12 years
Starfire Academy’s Technical and Tactical Training for kids ages 7 to 12 years is designed for any child looking for technical and tactical training in a non-intimidating environment. Participants will be trained on learning technical skills such as dribbling, stopping, trapping, passing and shooting and then proper application of these skills in a variety of game situations. The technical academy is a great next level for those who have participated in the micro league for multiple sessions or for experienced players looking for supplemental training. More information.
