5 Star Program

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.
