Starfinder’s Playmakers Program offers 100 high school students annually a fun, challenging after-school program that promotes physical fitness, encourages academic achievement, and provides opportunities to practice leadership skills.
And of course, we play lots of soccer!
Playmakers meets after school 4:30-6:30pm from November through March at our indoor turf facility. This intensive program requires a big commitment from participants. We believe the pay-off is worth it!
Participants are assigned to one of four cohorts. Each cohort has two regular program days (Mon & Wed or Tues & Thurs) and optional Fridays and weekends. During each session, you will get to improve your soccer and fitness skills through scrimmages, technical and tactical drills, and high quality instruction. Teens will also receive one-on-one mentoring, engage in leadership development, and build strong connections in a fun, challenging, and supportive community. And to fuel all this hard work, youth are provided snacks and meals every afternoon at program. Through consistent attendance and participation, students earn the chance to participate in leagues, tournaments, college visits, and other special events and opportunities.
Who Can Participate
The Playmakers Program is for male and female high school students, 9th-12th grade (We encourage students to join when they are underclassmen.) Some soccer experience is encouraged but not required. The most important quality is a willingness to commit to the whole program.
Interested in joining?
Due to the COVID pandemic, the Playmakers program will run in 8-week sessions rather than a continuous 5-month program.
We are currently recruiting teens to join the 2020-2021 Playmakers winter session (tentatively scheduled to begin 1/18/2021 ).
