AJ UTUSH

DIRECTOR/GIRLS COACH

My favorite part about being a girls soccer coach is that I get to teach kids to reach for their dreams and goals. Soccer development to me is – and always will be – about teaching life lessons through the fun and dynamic medium of sport (i.e. be a good teammate, create positive habits, build self-esteem, and always look to challenge and improve yourself everyday)! Coaching soccer is all about engaging the mental, physical, technical, tactical, and life style into one place… the field.

 

The coaches at USA Stars focus on every aspect of soccer development. With an advanced and proven methodology, we don’t just play soccer here, we live it! We invite all soccer families and players with a passion and a dream to team up with USA Stars Academy to work towards realizing our dreams together!

Rashid Utush

DIRECTOR/Boys COACH

As a player I progressed from a youth, playing club soccer to becoming a professional and playing overseas in a first division club in Europe. I take the process of development seriously because I know firsthand the steps involved to progress. I implement these steps with staff coaches and always keep the player in mind. Complete development is the goal so we can promote passion, commitment and hard work. These are traits that we hope will show in all aspects of their life.”

TESTIMONIALS

At the USA Stars Academy, our goal is to teach and demonstrate a love of soccer to our younger kids and we do this through our Grassroots Program.  For Boys and Girls of any skill level and ages 5-8 who want to learn the fundamentals of soccer without the competitive team commitment.  Having fun while learning and playing.  Register for Grassroots

Grassroots is a year-round program that features a multi-level approach to soccer development and a path to future soccer.  With guidance from US Soccer, this program is designed for any player, regardless of age, aspiration, and/or ability.  We are hoping to build a soccer experience that players will take with them wherever they wish to go.  As the player develops and grows in Grassroots, they may choose to join one of our age-appropriate Competitive teams or continue in the Grassroots program.  Their development path is at their own pace.

We are committed to creating a home for all aspiring soccer players that strive to reach towards their full potential while enjoying the game
