IT STARTED WITH THE PASSION TO TEACH THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR SPORT
In 2000 Gustavo Szulansky, Argentina native and father-of-three founded Super Soccer Stars. He was determined to build the best children’s soccer program in New York. Today Super Soccer Stars is the largest children’s soccer development program in the United States for kids aged 2 and up.
In 2007, after having a group of players reach a level of soccer maturity, Super Soccer Stars launched Stars Premier (now Soccer Stars United), an advanced player development program. We pooled the most talented players and built on their passion for the sport. The combination of high-level practices and local soccer competitions helped accelerate the communication, game insight, technique and fitness skills of the soccer player development journey.
In 2009, with the identity of Stars Premier truly embedded in the fabric of the New York City soccer community, we launched the Stars Premier Teams initiative. We added a new dimension to our player development program using our wide pool of talent to form team rosters that will optimize the player development journey. The careful selection of players for each team roster created the ideal learning environment for each playing level.
By Fall 2015 Soccer Stars United (formerly Stars Premier) had opened classes and travel programs in NY, BOS, LA and MIA. With over 50 travel teams across Soccer Stars United had firmly established its national identity.
2018 & 2019
The Club receives national attention as our U14 Galaxy team from NY wins the Club’s 1st National Championship in Aurora, CO with a team comprised of former Super Soccer Stars graduates. The team returned to Kansas City in 2019 with an appearance at the USYS National Championship.
