ABOUT MSC 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, and 2018) to properly place them in the ideal situation as we look forward to the travel team programs in Spring 2023 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 Spring 2023 and can choose to reserve their slot early as they will be given priority for acceptance due to their participation in MSC Futures.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT A SESSION:
All of our sessions are designed around ball mastery. Ball Mastery or technical skill is a player's ability to control the ball quickly and close to their foot. All sessions are oriented around maximizing each player's foot contact with the ball. In each session, they will learn something new or go over something they have already learned to refine their technique. Our coaches aim to get players to love manipulating the ball with their feet while playing fun games. While the children are playing these games, they are steadily developing key attributes they will need if they choose to play competitive soccer. The more a player touches the ball, the better they will be when in possession of the ball.
This program is an introductory period for children, which is why we are committed to creating a nurturing atmosphere for our youngest players. A positive, distraction-free environment is key to developing player's confidence and willingness to take chances without fear of failure. Confidence is another key foundation for young players. When they master possession of the ball their confidence will grow. This age group is not only about player development but also social development as they are learning how to become teammates while playing a sport they enjoy. Players are expected to learn at their own pace and capacity. We just want them to have FUN while playing soccer.
