The NorthStar Legacy
Since our first graduating class in 2000 we have helped hundreds of players achieve their soccer dreams of playing in college. From big NCAA Division I programs, like Purdue and Michigan State to small NAIA and Division III schools, NorthStar has sent players who have not only succeeded in school and soccer but in many cases won school, league and even national honors athleticaly and academically. NorthStar players have succeeded in soccer programs all across the country from Whitman College in Washington State to Keene State University in New Hampshire; from University of Minnesota and North Dakota State to University of Tennessee (Martin) and Lipscomb University (Knoxville).
Many other out of state schools have discovered the quality of NorthStar players: University of South Dakota, Indiana University/Purdue University (Indianapolis), Ohio Wesleyan, Indiana Concordia and Concordia of St. Paul, and The College of the South among many others.
A number of in-state schools have taken NorthStar players and enjoy a close relationship with NorthStar as well. Among them; Northern Michigan University, Ferris State University, Eastern Michigan University, University of Detroit, Grand Valley State University, Kalamazoo College, Albion College, Hope College, Aquinas College, and Olivet College. The University of Michigan Women’s Club team has won two National Club Championships while fielding NorthStar graduates and Western Michigan Women’s club team was reorganized and captained by a NorthStar grad.
