Westfield, IN, Thursday, February 20, 2020: Indiana Soccer is happy to announce that the Jr Irish Soccer Club in South Bend is the fourth club to earn “stars” towards their 5-star goal. Jr. Irish has completed all the requirements necessary for the Alignment, Communication, and Governance stars. Indiana Soccer introduced the idea and concept of the 5-Star Program in 2018. The purpose of this initiative is to ensure legal corporate compliance and increase the capacity and quality of member clubs. Member Clubs and leagues are invited to elevate their performance in a few fundamental areas in order to meet the criteria established to earn "stars" in those areas. Once a member club or league has reached all 5 stars, they will be recognized and promoted for being a 5-STAR CLUB or 5-STAR LEAGUE.
“The Jr Irish Club is more than half-way to the 5-star club status! I am looking forward to continue working with them on this important initiative.” Angel Hall, 5-Star Program Director, Associate Director - Indiana Soccer.
“It is great to see clubs make this investment in time and resources to ensure sustainability and to remain a valuable member of their local community. Indiana Soccer is proud to recognize Jr. Irish for their participation in this program. ” – Dave Guthrie, Executive Director – Indiana Soccer
“Jr. Irish is committed to the kids and the 5-Star program that Indiana Soccer has put together. The Five-Star program is an incredible and invaluable tool for clubs across the state. Providing a safe learning environment for our families has always been a priority and the 5-star program has really helped us shape our policies and procedures. Thank you, Indiana Soccer for your commitment to risk management and your guidance to the membership!” - Ken Nuber, Executive Director, Jr Irish Soccer Club
