An admittedly overstated side effect of the hype around youth and youth soccer is the belief that the future’s bright for teenagers and youth players. Consider the following facts: 50% of high school soccer players in the US don’t play after high school; US teen soccer participation has fallen 45% since 1998; MLS salaries average out to less than $12,000 a year and U.S. Soccer doesn’t compensate for training costs; etc.

​We are excited to share with you the formation of a new era in club soccer in Michigan. One that will propel players on a path towards elite youth and beyond to college, semi-pro and professional levels of competition, yet still allowing for a club's community roots and all levels of soccer to remain in place. Two strong community clubs, Rochester Soccer Club’s “Michigan Lightning”, and Macomb County’s “Michigan Revolution F.C.” will be joining forces, to form the start of a new elite level “Michigan Stars Elite.” In doing so, they will create a more comprehensive competitive opportunity that can further advance the goals and overall experiences of our players and all other competitive youth players . Going forward, we will provide a greater player pathway to the top national levels of youth soccer, college opportunities, and professional competition.

In 2019, the Stars went through a rebirth as a club when team principal George Juncaj took over complete ownership of the club with pro aspirations in sight and goals of getting to the next levels. With this vision, in 2020 the Stars FC moved up to NISA (National Independent Soccer Association) where they will continue to play this year, and have plans to keep advancing their professional play. Part of George’s plan was to also create a permanent home for the team, which was recently accomplished with the purchase of Total Sports Complex (Washington Township) now known as the Michigan Stars Sports Center. With this property in hand, plans have already begun on the addition of a new 10,000 seat outdoor stadium as their permanent home field. (Source: www.michiganstarselite.com)
