He're what some of the HS Seniors that played for Shooting Stars for many years had to say...
“Shooting Stars taught me that most things in life don't come easy, but there's absolutely no reason why you shouldn't try to achieve your goals. I kept playing Shooting Stars because I saw how passionate my friends were about soccer, and I knew if I practiced as hard as they did, one day I would figure out how to become better at the sport I loved so much. This lesson is one I use every day at school."
- Andrew, HS Senior, 8 years in GRSS
“From joining this Shooting Stars team I was able to develop friendships that helped me through middle school. For most people, middle school is a tough time, but with the friendships that I had made from being part of this team, I had never felt that I was struggling. I had made many good friends that would stay by my side throughout High School. Sport of soccer taught me discipline, teamwork, and most importantly perseverance.“

Being a Shooting Star introduced me to people I love, the friends that I otherwise would have missed. Shooting Stars also brought me the gifts of discipline, joy, friendship, the ability to learn from mistakes, and the understanding that many people must work together for an organization to be successful. These are lessons I will take with me."

It was through this organization that I fell in love with healthy competition and a passion for the sport.“
