Player Pathway

​Rochester Soccer Club’s Michigan Lightning and Macomb County’s Michigan Revolution FC have joined forces to form a new, elite level club - Michigan Stars Elite. This partnership will provide a greater player pathway to the top national levels of youth soccer, college, semi-pro, and professional opportunities. This structure allows Lightning and Revolution to focus and function in their original community foundations and programs, but adds a pathway to even higher levels for players from each organization. This allows our community clubs to now have a truly vertical pathway for player growth and development, ranging from recreation to travel to pro.
