ETC.: STAR Soccer is the state’s newest and most spacious soccer venue. It includes 14 lighted soccer fields and support facilities that cost $10 million to build. STAR Soccer participants may not realize it, but while they’re having fun and getting exercise, they’re contributing to a great cause. Proceeds from STAR Soccer help support the operation and maintenance of Morgan’s Wonderland, the world’s first ultra-accessible family fun park designed with special-needs individuals of all ages in mind. The non-profit park and STAR Soccer were created through the vision and leadership of The Gordon Hartman Family Foundation. Academy Sports + Outdoors is an official partner of STAR Soccer.
STAR Soccer will be the home of a new North American Soccer League team in 2012. Again, proceeds from pro soccer will go to support Morgan’s Wonderland. For more information, visit
