R.E.A.C.H. For The STARS
Indiana Soccer is proud to present the 5 STAR PROGRAM. This purpose of this program is to ensure legal compliance, and increase the capacity and quality of member clubs. Member Clubs will perform with excellence in a few fundamental areas to meet the criteria established to earn "stars" in those areas. Once a member club has reached all 5 stars, they will be awarded with the recognition of being a 5-STAR MEMBER in Indiana.
For assistance or if you have questions, please contact Angel Hall at Indiana Soccer.
