Under 7 - MSC Boys Futures

ABOUT MSC Boys futures

The MSC Futures Program is a coed training-and-play program spearheaded by our director, Carlos Moreira. We carefully develop the skills of our youngest players (born in  2016, 2017, 2018, 2019) to properly place them in the ideal situation as we look forward to the travel team programs in Fall 2024 and beyond.

Our coaching team will develop the players' technical skills, boost their confidence, and foster a passion for soccer in a fun atmosphere.

Players in the program may be offered travel team spots for Fall 2024 and can choose to reserve their slots early. Due to their participation in MSC Futures, they will be given priority for acceptance.

Ball Mastery: Our sessions are all about getting those feet working! Kids will play fun games designed to help them control the ball, making them feel like soccer superstars.

Learning Through Play: Every activity, whether it's learning a new skill or refining an old one, is about having fun while building the foundation for competitive soccer.

The Joy of Touching the Ball: The more kids play with the ball, the better they become! Our program helps them fall in love with dribbling, passing, and feeling confident with the ball at their feet.

A Nurturing Space to Grow: Young players need a positive environment to try new things. Our coaches create a space where kids feel supported and free to take risks, building confidence on and off the field.

Teamwork Time: Kids don't just learn soccer skills; they learn how to be great teammates! Our sessions foster friendships and a love of the game through cooperation.

Key Takeaway: It's all about FUN! We want kids to leave each session with smiles and a love for soccer in their hearts.

About The Director


Carlos Moreira is our U5-U8 Development Academy Director. He brings a wealth of teaching and coaching experience to our program as an inspirational collaborator with a proven track record in creating a compassionate, supportive, and encouraging environment in which our players will develop their fundamental skill set and realize the true meaning of teamwork. As Coach Moreira says, "What I have learned through soccer is what I seek to instill in my young players: autonomy and authority can only co-exist with camaraderie."

"I am a soccer coach because I became the best version of myself on the field, and that is what I want to offer my kids: a space where they can not only acquire the foundation of great skills and a deep love for the game but also learn what kind of people they want to be."
A former DIII offensive player for William Patterson University, Carlos' enthusiasm for soccer began at age five while living in Japan, where he first played travel soccer. When his family settled in Fayetteville, GA., he joined and played for the AFC Lightning Club for five years. After that, he began a highly accomplished coaching career working with boys and girls of all ages during his eight years at Super Soccer Stars and NY Stars Premier. During this time, he coached his teams to regional success, developed several highly popular programs, and saw his most gifted students fulfill their soccer ambitions. 
"My proudest moment as a coach is seeing a star player pass the ball to an open teammate rather than attempt to score independently. No matter how often I witness it, I am always moved by the instant when their love for the game and respect for each other overcomes their desire for individual stardom. When kids learn independence, they often associate it with not needing other people. Sports humble us and remind us that we can only succeed if we work together, for no one player can single-handedly win a trophy."
