STARS Soccer Program

“Every child has the right to enjoy the fun of playing sports, the joy of teamwork, the achievement of hitting a ball or making a goal or crossing the finish line.” 

    The STARS athletic program offers children and young adults, who are affected by physical and developmental disabilities, an opportunity to enjoy the fun of sports just like anyone of their peers. Through sports these young athletes build strength, flexibility, stamina and teamwork skills in a positive environment. The STARS athletic program is sponsored by Merrol Hyde Magnet School staff and students in addition to community volunteers. Special Needs athletics is good exercise, great for self-esteem and provides an opportunity for these very special athletes to be proud and to create many lasting friendships! The STARS have a mission to encourage development of skills through hard work, determination and increased team membership.
