Superstars 2023 (4 - 12 years)

The second Semester Superstars will commence on Tuesday 25th Jul 2023.

Casey Comets is delighted to announce our Superstars programs for boys and girls for 2023. This is a football and coaching investment in our younger players. The program is designed to teach younger players the fundamentals of the game whilst instilling a love and passion for all things football.

We want our players to be able to progress to competitive football equipped with the skills, knowledge, passion and confidence that will see them compete at all levels. We want to move away from placing young players straight into a competitive environment that they are not ready for, unable to fully understand the game which impacts their confidence, enjoyment of the game and often no understanding of commitment to a competitive team.

Our Stars programs will be the springboard to a lifelong love of the game.
NEW PLAYERS ARE WELCOME TO A FREE COME & TRY SESSION.

Players will be in age-appropriate groups. More details are below.

Program Information - Superstars (Registration) (4 - 11+ years)

About the programs

The Superstars programs were introduced in 2018 and proved to be immensely successful. In 2019 we expanded the programs and split into 2 age appropriate groups. Now in 2023, the program has been considerably adapted and is managed by higher qualified coaches and underpins our whole club coaching policy. 

Our Superstars is a program for younger players age 4 - 11 years (The sub junior age groups). This is a mixed program for boys & girls. 


New Players

This program is set up for players to join at any time. We understand that you may be unsure to register for a full program without knowing what the program is all about. Your child may also feel unsure when they arrive. We invite all new players to the first session as a free 'Come & Try' session. In other words, you are not committing until you and your child have experienced the Superstars program.

We ask that you still enter their details by using the jotform and you can complete the registration after the first session.


In Semester 2, we will be looking at establishing teams ready for competition. Every 3rd week, we will run either an intra club competition or against a local club. We will also look to place teams into post season tournaments.

The Superstars program is designed to help players learn, develop and improve football skills. Players will learn in age appropriate groups alongside teammates that are at similar developmental stages. 

Players will learn the following by games and drills, skill demonstrations and small sided competition in match format.

  • 1 v 1
  • Running with the ball
  • Passing the ball
  • Ball mastery, control & technique
As players progress, there will be more introduction to match formats and eventually participation in Gala days against other local Clubs.

The program in Semester 2 will be more technical and tactical preparing players for competition and improving physical performance. Training will learn the following 
First touch
Playing Out 
Decision making 
Game reading & game intelligence
Development of positional awareness
Tempo change
Ball possession and transition.

We will also be looking for parents who are interested in coaching for 2024 and would like to become involved in assisting the current program. If you are interested, please speak with the Program Coach, Kate Bennett.

There is a signing-in sheet for all players which we ask parents/guardians to complete each week.

The Club has its own QR Code which is positioned at the Club entrance points and dotted around the facilities. All parents/guardians, family, friends, spectators must check in with this code on every visit to the Club if they are on the facility for more than 15 minutes. This is a government COVID compliance.


Pitch Care - Club policy

Both Superstars & Shooting Stars will be mainly held on our main Pitch 1 or on designated small pitches situated behind the main stand. This pitch is our main senior competitive pitch and has to be kept and maintained to allow senior fixtures in line with Football Victoria's pitch policies.

Parents, Spectators, family members are to refrain from this pitch. There is an undercover seated area next to the pitch which allows everyone to watch and enjoy your children learning to play football. We have fantastic barista coffee on sale through the canteen so you can sit back and enjoy.

Prams, bicycles, scooters and any other games are not allowed on to the main pitch at any time. Player Entrance & Exit to the pitch is at the gate at the bottom of the pitch area.

Pitch access is for players, coaches and administrators only. 


Adverse Weather Conditions: - See the CLUB'S WEATHER POLICY HERE 

The Club will not call off training unless;

a) Conditions are extreme - Such as high temperatures, thunderstorms and continuous heavy raininformation will be posted on the Facebook page and website - If there is no information it means the program will run as normal. We do check the forecast regularly.

b) We are advised and requested by the City of Casey - Pitch and grounds preservation

c) The pitches are waterlogged 


If the warnings or pitch conditions are available in time, the program manager will issue a notice direct to all participants. We ask that not everyone tries to ring the program manager or club as it clogs personal phone lines and the majority work during the day.  


Other Benefits 

The welcomes you as part of the Club. Whilst our main aim is facilitate football training for your child and ensure that they have the most enjoyable time with us. We also strive to create a great community club. There will be several functions through the year, some will be for or with the young players and some will be adults. Some are just for social reasons while other events will be fundraising.

We generally have a kids disco part way through the year - which is always successful (& loud!). We hold trivia nights, Ladies Day, Band Nights and of course there are the end of season presentations plus more. We are also open to suggestions.

We hope that many of our Superstars will act as mascots on Senior Match Day and the older ones will act as Ball Boys for the Senior teams.

We especially hope that our younger girls will enjoy watching our Victorian Premier League Women.

In 2022, we are delighted to announce that we will be a Melbourne City Platinum Club. This will give all our Superstar players free tickets to 6 of the final home games of the 2021/22 Season. It will also give players an opportunity to participate in City's home game through 1/2 games. Our coaches will also benefit by access to sessions with City coaches. (The 6 game free ticket offer is only available to players that have paid program fees).


Coaching - Casey Comets is always looking for parents, guardians, older siblings that would like to become a coach or interested in assisting with a team on match days. The program is set up that any prospective coach would be mentored during training and the Club will also support any coach through undertaking FV accredited training. This will help the coach manage player transition to defined teams.

If you are interested, please speak with one of the Stars coaches or email Del, the Club's Director of Football superstars@caseycomets.com.au
