Superstars & Shooting Stars (4-9 years)

Casey Comets runs skills programs for younger players. The programs are introductory programs that have been adapted from Football Federation Australia's Discovery phase of the FFA National Curriculum.

The programs are split into 3 age specific groups and an information sheet is linked to each program.

Registration is open for these programs. Both Superstars groups will commence in March with the Shooting Stars beginning in April.

Whilst players are not split into teams, the Superstars will aim to introduce competition through the season and all programs will incorporate match play.

Program Information - Superstars (Registration)

About the programs
The Superstars programs were introduced in 2018 and proved to be immensely successful. In 2019 we are expanding the programs and splitting into 2 age appropriate groups.
Superstars 6 - 701/01/2012 - 31/08/2013Tues: 5.30pm Sun: 10.15am
Superstars 8 - 901/01/2010 - 31/12/2011Thurs: 5.30pm Sun 10.15am

Superstars is an introductory program for young players that will teach football skills in a safe, inclusive environment. The program will aim to introduce competitive football whilst instilling confidence in young players.
We recognise that young players all develop at different rates, the programs will allow player skill development and knowledge giving them a smooth transition to team football.
The programs are suitable for children that have not played competitive football or are new to the game. It is also suitable for returning players that may not have the confidence for competitive football or players who are unable to commit to twice weekly training and games at weekends. By joining the programs they can still play and enjoy the game.
With the demand for team football, our younger teams are full, so many players will be placed in the Stars programs to allow them access to playing football.
The programs also encourage coach development and many parents step up and get involved with coaching.

Please note, this is a mixed program, however we will also be offering a Girls only program for younger players beginning end of April. For more information on the Girls program, please email lee.r.hobbs@gmail.com
