Development Squads

Person First, Player Second!


Our focus is on the person by creating an environment where they can develop their skills in a fun & enjoyable way. THE STAR WAY is about developing the player rather than a team; the emphasis is on technical, tactical, psychological, social and physical development.

Our player development plan takes a holistic approach to learning football so players can learn and develop their skills with total freedom, so they can become the best players they’re capable of becoming.


Our Ball Stars Syllabus is structured season long training plan that mirrors what players would receive if they were training at a professional club academy.


Players are enrolled into our Advanced Player Performance Plan (APPP) so players and parents can track their progress and player journey.


Our Development Squads will represent Star Soccer Academy in matches against other teams on selected Saturdays (minimum 20 matches per season)


All players that represent our Development Squads will be invited to the Academy Presentation Evening where they will be given a trophy for representing Star.
