The MSC Academy program provides a bridge between Recreational and Competitive Soccer with a specific, age-appropriate curriculum that is specially structured to provide a safe and fun soccer environment for kids to make optimal developmental gains as soccer players.
The MSC Academy program is designed as the next level for 9U and 1OU players who are ready to progress from recreational soccer to a more structured training and playing program. The Academy is a center of training excellence where players are instructed twice weekly by certified staff members.
This program is a great introduction to competitive soccer and one which developmentally will give players the tools they need to advance to U11 competitive soccer.
