“Our coaches rock!” At player evaluations, my son’s coach says, “You have all the technique and skills… What I want you to work on is your mind. Think like a champion. Believe you can win, even if it’s 2-1 with 5 minutes left; and mostly when you lose or mess up, react with positive thoughts and respect!” I’m posting this because not many youth coaches teach this, when they do, they are Remarkable! Thank you Coach Rashid!
This club continues to be an amazing experience. We’ve been here for 4 years and the coaches ability to develop the kids into skilled soccer players is just the beginning. They also use the medium to develop them into team members that function as a whole before the individual, and inspire them to give their best effort at whatever they are involved in – family, school, and life.
We have played for other teams, but this one feels like home. The kids and parents all get along, and that is hard to find. Our son’s skills have become amazing and it’s because of how this club teaches soccer to the kids. I recommend USA Stars to anyone who want’s to see their child excel in soccer.
