Two strong community clubs, Rochester Soccer Club’s "Michigan Lightning” and Macomb County’s “Michigan Revolution F.C.” will be joining forces to form a new and separate elite level club - Michigan Stars Elite. This will provide a greater player pathway to the top national levels of youth soccer, college, semi-pro, and professional opportunities. This new structure still allows the Lightning and Revolution Clubs to focus and function in their original community foundations and programs, but now adds a pathway to even higher levels for players from each organization. To continue our advancement to get us to that next level, we have also developed a partnership with the Michigan Stars FC - Michigan's premier professional soccer club. This exciting partnership with the Michigan Stars FC, establishing us as their youth development academy, allows our new and community clubs to now have a truly vertical pathway for player growth and development, ranging from recreation to pro. It also allows us the advantage to have a dedicated home for practices and games, and a planned stadium for the big games.
We are a travel soccer club playing in the MYSL & MSYSA leagues. Our Eagles & Stars teams play at premier levels, while the Patriot & Liberties teams play at mid-high level travel. Select teams play in local travel leagues.
We are based in Macomb County with our indoor facilities in Sterling Heights, Shelby Twp. & Washington Twp. We have outdoor fields that are located anywhere from 18 Mile Rd. to 30 Mile Rd., between Ryan Road & Romeo Plank.
Our club is committed to player development. With our club owned facility, Michigan Revolution Training Center, we offer over 150 training sessions per year. Training sessions are with Revolution staff along with trainers from Colleges, Next Level Training & Elevated Technique Sports Performance.
