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 U11 through U19 (10 to 18 years old) 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 four years old. Once a Bright Stars of Colorado player is 10 years old (U11), the choice can be made whether to continue playing recreational soccer or join our competitive program.
U11 - U12 players are required to attend two soccer practices per week. Players in the U13 and up groups are required to attend three 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.
To be a part of this program, every player goes through an annual tryout process beginning in the month of April 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 4-5 tournaments a year, including off season (winter & summer) training participation. Top level teams (Super League, Premier, and or Division 1) will travel to out of state tournaments 1-2 times per year.
Registration fees payments can be made in 3 installments each season.
*All fees include Bright Stars fees, CSA team and player registration fees, referee fees, regular field rental expenses and maintenance, and coaches fees for one season only. The fees DO NOT include tournament fees or expenses, uniform, tournaments, indoor fees or other team expenses.
