What is our Blue Star Academy?

Blue Star is an advanced technical training program within Lou Fusz Athletic that focuses on the elite development of our advanced soccer players. The academy starts for boys and girls age 6–9 years old. It is directed by former professional soccer players and coached by our staff who play (or recently played) collegiate soccer. The development path for our Blue Star player varies depending on the age groups, but focuses consistently on skill development and instilling proper techniques within our athletes while progressing into game play. Players will build a strong foundation to grow from as they learn the core necessities of the game. This academy is an INVITE ONLY program dedicated to teaching our young players the proper skills to achieve their full potential. Our U9 academy runs as a one year program, while our younger players will partake in a seasonal program.
