Current / Past Staff

The success of the 5 Star Camps has always been centered around a sound curriculum delivered by excellent soccer coaches. We believe that good coaching is good teaching and our staff has always delivered in a fun and caring environment. We are proud of the individuals who have taught our youth players, people who enjoy seeing kids succeed. Many of the staff coaches that join us annually are current school teachers in some capacity.
