The Future SPORTING program (formerly Future STARS) is a young player’s initial opportunity to venture into the world of competitive soccer. Future SPORTING is for that player who has the desire to further develop their existing skills in a more ambitious environment. Core soccer fundamentals are taught, players are challenged and creative play is encouraged. Each week, an area of concentration is the focus and that week’s game that follows will highlight this new skill. The program includes fall, winter and spring sessions coached by an experienced soccer professional. A player may choose to play on their recreational team while also participating with Future SPORTING or they may choose only to participate in the Future SPORTING program. Practices and games for Future SPORTING do not conflict with schedules for recreational teams or the Skills Club program.
Players in the 1st and 2nd Grade (& Kindergartners ready for a challenge!)
The Future SPORTING program closely models a true competitive soccer schedule for practices and games. Fall (Aug/Sept/Oct) and spring (Mar/Apr/May) outdoor seasons include one practice per week and 8 Sunday games. During the winter (Jan/Feb) indoor season, skill development continues through small-sided Futsal training with one Sunday session per week that includes approximately 20 minutes of practice directly followed by a game. Outdoor seasons are held at Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex – SPORTING Blue Valley’s home training facility. Winter sessions are held in the gymnasium of a local school.
Future SPORTING is designed to transition a young player from a recreational program with a volunteer coach and a team of varied soccer skill levels to a competitive program with a professional coach with teammates more aligned in skill level. It is also designed to give the soccer player and family a clearer view of the commitment and skill level associated with the premier game.
