At NorthStar, "Club Teams" are teams which competing against teams from other Clubs - regardless of competition level. Experienced players may begin participating on Club Teams at older elementary ages. Currently all middle and high school NorthStar players compete on Club Teams. Club Teams compete at a variety of levels depending on age and overall team experience. Generally NorthStar teams compete in either CASL (Central Alabama Soccer League) which is considered 'recreational' level soccer. Or ASA State League, which is considered 'competitive' level soccer. NorthStar Soccer Ministries also provides on going support for individual players who 'graduate' from our program on to higher level teams at Clubs in the area.
Club Teams are organized by year of birth rather than school grade. NorthStar players as young as 4th grade sometimes 'play up' on Club Teams. Most 5th and 6th graders are a fit for the U12 division - which is typically 2011 and 2012 birth year.
Club Teams begin at 11U/12U - players born in 2012 and 2011 for the Fall 2022 season / Spring 2023 season.
NorthStar is also fielding teams for older players, 7th grade through high school. Contact Coach Paul to find out if spaces remain for kids these ages and what teams are forming.
We work to have teams that are different skill levels. Intermediate and Advanced level teams will require try outs. We do our best to have opportunities for new players at all ages while also providing challenge for our more advanced players.
