"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."
