Our mission at Soccer Stars is to provide positive youth development. This responsibility and the role we play is paramount to our foundation and extends well beyond soccer instruction. Socialization, creative thinking, and inclusivity are just a few of the pillars that have helped shape our curriculum.
There is no place for discrimination or intolerance of any kind. Soccer has no boundaries, and we take pride in our diverse coaching staff of all colors and cultures, positively affecting the social understanding of our youth. We are taking the position as educators and coaches to teach and emphasize equality and inclusion as a mandatory part of our curriculum.
Black Lives Matter and we are committed to addressing racial injustice and inequality through sustained action, to work towards a better tomorrow. Change starts at the beginning. By doing our part in using soccer as a vehicle to teach children that we are all one TEAM and to embrace individuality and diversity, we can make a difference.

Recognizing Juneteenth as a company-wide holiday.
To start conversations about these important topics with kids, our Advocacy Group has been sharing a few helpful resources for coach-mentors, parents, and others about how to talk about race and racial bias with their young people.
