BECOME A HOST FAMILY
The Red Stars are no longer seeking host families for the 2019 season. Please check again soon!
This is very special program for both the players and families involved. The players truly feel like they have a home away from home and the families feel like they gain another family member.
“We are so blessed to watch the players we host pursue their dreams and see the hard hard work they endure every day to contribute to Red Star success. They are so talented and we hope we can make them feel comfortable and at home so they can focus on their success. We have met their parents and those of other first team Red Stars and feel the same support and love from the Red Star Community. Hosting is love for the team and love for women’s soccer.”
– Dave, Host Family 2016-Present

What is the process for choosing a host family?
Once you have expressed interest you will be sent a basic questionnaire. The questionnaire asks for general information about your location, home, and family. If the accommodations suit our needs, we will then set up an in-home interview between you and a representative from the Red Stars Organization. A background check that we will provide is required for all interested families. The final step would be matching your family with one of our players.
