THE NEXT GENERATION
Creating a fun, educational environment for our little players.
Preparing the next generation of Soccer players to play the Titans / Sting SA Way.
Our Rising Stars Program aims to create a fun, friendly, and challenging environment that helps develop creative young soccer players, and instills a passion for and love of the game of soccer. Players will work on and develop good ball mastery skills necessary to take their game to the next level.
Training sessions will be fun and competitive to improve the skill level of the player.
Training is developed from a set curriculum that provides players with technical training to cover all aspects of the game.
We give U4 (born Jan - June of 2014) - U7 (born 2011) year old soccer players the opportunity to continue participating in local recreational leagues (NEYSO, SAYSAT, YMCA, i9) while having the advantage of supplemental, technical training provided by Titans professional trainers.
Players have the opportunity to move up to the Titans / Sting SA Development Program when they reach the U8 bracket.
See what some of our members have to say
SA United's Rising Stars program is a great program for kids starting out in soccer. Coming from 2 years at the YMCA, my son has learned so much ball work in just one short session in this program. It provides solid, professional coaching, where the fundamentals are learned within a fun, relaxed environment.
We have had our kids play soccer at multiple places (YMCA, i9), but SA United's Rising Stars program has been most successful at developing their soccer skills. The coaches are very engaging. The training maximizes the player's abilities, teaches them about the game of soccer, and most importantly is fun!
Having fun, learning fundamentals, techniques and pool play
Teaching young players the fundamentals and techniques is essential at this early age.
Rising Stars players at SA United are immersed into an environment where the primary focus is on learning and developing each player's fundamental ball skills, such as total ball mastery, dribbling skills, and 1v1 abilities. Throughout the season, we focus on the individual player becoming more comfortable with the ball and learning different skill moves to be more confident in 1v1 situations. The Rising Stars coaching staff follow an established player development curriculum geared toward evolving the player's individual game.
Using the pool play method, we train players in the same-age groups, as well as by ability and playing experience. Age groups are developed as an entire group, as we prepare players to have a fundamental base of skills that are necessary to be a complete soccer player and to progress through all of the programs at Titans / Sting SA.
