DEVELOP SOCCER SKILLS IN A FUN & EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT
Soccer Stars United has a dual philosophy; fostering a lifelong passion for the game of soccer while maintaining a specific focus on player development through the Soccer Stars United Pathway. As the natural extension of the Super Soccer Stars program, Soccer Stars United provides a dynamic age-appropriate curriculum, which focuses on technical improvement, tactical decision making, and leadership development.
Our USC, USSF, and UEFA certified coaches are dedicated to developing well-rounded players in a fun and challenging environment. Soccer Stars United hones in on developing key individual 1v1 techniques, improving players’ employment of skills at speed, and developing the confidence to unlock each player’s true potential.
The secondary stage of our philosophy focuses on developing players for elite soccer, specifically our Soccer Stars United competitive travel teams. Our innovative cultivating approach to coaching helps players in our program play with confidence, creativity, and flair.
IT STARTED WITH THE PASSION TO TEACH THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR SPORT
In 2000 Gustavo Szulansky, Argentina native and father-of-three founded Super Soccer Stars. He was determined to build the best children’s soccer program in New York. Today Super Soccer Stars is the largest children’s soccer development program in the United States for kids aged 2 and up.
In 2007, after having a group of students reach a level of soccer maturity, Super Soccer Stars launched Stars Premier (now Soccer Stars United), an advanced player development program. We pooled the most talented players and built on their passion for the sport. The combination of high-level practices and local soccer competitions helped accelerate the communication, game insight, technique and fitness skills of the soccer player development journey.
In 2009, with the identity of Stars Premier truly embedded in the fabric of the New York City soccer community, we launched the Stars Premier Teams initiative. We added a new dimension to our player development program using our wide pool of talent to form team rosters that will optimize the player development journey. The careful selection of players for each team roster created the ideal learning environment for each playing level.
2018 & 2019
With over 50 travel teams across NY, CA, FL, and MA, Soccer Stars United firmly established its national identity. The Club receives national attention as our U14 Galaxy team from NY wins the Club’s 1st National Championship in Aurora, CO with a team comprised of former Super Soccer Stars graduates. The team returned to Kansas City in 2019 with an appearance at the USYS National Championship.
