"Soccer Superstar provides a great opportunity for young girls to showcase their skills, while promoting the growth of women's soccer in the U.S.," said Heather Mitts. "I remember the nerves, being challenged and working hard on the field, and Soccer Superstar takes the audience through that journey of becoming a skilled soccer player in an exciting, up close and personal way."

Throughout the season, Soccer Superstar follows 15 teen female soccer players on the Final Squad as they compete for the title of Soccer Superstar. After each week, the judges, Marcelo Balboa, Angela Hucles and Dan Metcalfe, decide who is eliminated based on their performances in training, competitive games and various soccer challenges on the field (penalty kicks, kick ups, beep test fitness) and personality challenges off the field (ballet, beach volleyball). After four games, one girl will be crowned the Soccer Superstar.
