Background

FC Stars of Massachusetts is an elite premier soccer club based in Acton, Mass. They have 42 teams in the club consisting of 29 girl’s teams and 13 boy’s teams. The club also has a U6 through U9 Academy as well as many clinics and camps throughout the year.

The Stars teams play in the Massachusetts Premier league (MAPLE), New England Premiership (NEP) and the Region 1 Premier League. FC Stars is also a member of the prestigious Elite Clubs National League (ECNL).

Founded in 1997, FC Stars have produced 23 State Cup winning teams in the past 10 years, our best year coming in 2010 when the club won 6 State cups, 5 on the girl’s side and 1 on the boy’s. FC Stars teams also perform on a national basis and in 2005 the U19 Girls team at the time won the USYSA National Championship.

In 2010 the club expanded from its Metrowest base by creating a satellite FC Stars West unit to offer the Stars program to young players in western Massachusetts.

The club has fashioned a soccer training development program that meets the technical, tactical, physical and psychological needs of girls and boys who have dedicated themselves to becoming premier soccer players. The Stars coaching staff, curriculum, philosophy, and the overall competitive experience provide a compelling soccer environment for premier-caliber players.

The Club is a non-profit volunteer organization sanctioned by the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association.

The Stars play a very physical game and this may turn off parents and/or players – not everybody can handle such a club.

You must talk to other soccer families who are in the club or have been in the past.

    GREAT club and very competitive, especially on the elite teams. I think more for very good players as mid-level not so great to train and develop, as like so many clubs the focus is on elite to win and lower levels subsidize, thanks.

    THE worst coaching here at Stars; my son’s coach misses many games, bring his kid to games and sort of expects us to watch the wee one, and plays favorites on the team – just a horrible experience.

    Either don’t join Stars altogether or at the least do as Peter says here and ask around especially of parents on team now.

    Thanks.

    Great Club, very good at developing individual players and giving them positive direction. There is always a lesson to be learned and any criticism is given in a positive way. Never have we had a problem with the coaches we have had for our son. He enjoys the practice time, games, Teammates, and his coaches very much. We have all had a positive experience and I would highly recommend FC Stars to anyone.

    Best club in the state. usually the only complaints are from parents of kids who don’t play much. the Stars coaches actually expect their players to show up at training. What a nervy group!
