Super Soccer Stars was founded in 2000 by Argentina native and father-of-three Gustavo Szulansky. With fútbol in his blood, Gustavo was determined to build the best children's soccer program out there. Super Soccer Stars is now the most popular children's soccer development program in the Northeast and LA for kids of all ages. Super Soccer Stars' dynamic coaches work to develop skills, self-confidence, and teamwork while always emphasizing fun in an environment with low student-to-coach ratios. All Super Soccer Stars classes are based on an age-specific curriculum created by a combination of youth, soccer, and behavioral specialists to guarantee that each student is learning and having a blast from the moment the whistle blows. Super Soccer Stars has developed a unique class format for all its budding soccer stars in which they can excel from class to class. Each class kicks off with a dynamic warm-up followed by muscle-warming stretches to get everyone ready for action. Skill development is the central piece of the class, focusing on the basic skills which are integral to the game of soccer (i.e. dribbling, passing, shooting, defending and shielding) to optimize the experience for each student. Every session culminates in a scrimmage game, and always encourages students with positive reinforcement.
