Our Competitive Program is for the committed youth player looking for a higher level of soccer experience. The program creates a challenging environment that fosters player development through professional coaching, competitive matches, and a developmentally appropriate curriculum.
The program is for the 12 years through 18 years (U13 to 18) age levels for both boys and girls. The players in the competitive program begin their youth soccer experience in the recreational (classic) programs that starts at Seven years old. Once a Bright Stars player is 12 years old (U13), the choice can be made whether to continue playing recreational soccer or join our competitive program. Players in the U13 and up groups are required to attend three - four days of practices a week. In addition to team practices, the club provides weekly additional technical skills, striker/goalkeeper and goalkeeping training sessions. All players must be in proper club's training attire. The players will be lodged in one of our hostels.
To be a part of this program, every player goes through an annual tryout process beginning in the month of January for the following season. Players are selected to teams based on their appropriate skill level and in some instances, are dual rostered onto teams within their appropriate age groups to accommodate the growth of development. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for any child that is willing to be a part of this program. We may have numerous teams in an age group to help further every player’s development.
Each player is given the opportunity to compete on the national stage. It requires a commitment from both the players and the parents. This commitment includes playing in a minimum of 2 - 3 Nationals tournament and 1 to 2 Internationals tournaments a year, including off season (winter & summer) training participation. Top level teams will travel to out of the country tournaments 1-2 times per year.
Registration and travelling teams' fees payments can be made in 3 installments each year.
*All fees include Bright Stars fees and travelling expenses to internationals tournaments will be communicated to selected players in February of each year. The fees would include tournament fees or expenses, Air tickets, Hotels and other team expenses.
