Manhattan Soccer Club is the largest and most comprehensive soccer club in New York City, offering all levels of development and competition from ages 3 to 23. Every training session is run by licensed, professional coaches who follow a curriculum that develops both the player and the person. Through their dedication to mastering the sport of soccer, our players not only learn to love the “beautiful game.” They build strength and stamina, self-esteem and sportsmanship.
We are also a community of more than 800 families. We come from all five boroughs and the surrounding area, and play our soccer right in the heart of New York City. Our spring tournament, which benefits player scholarships, is one of the top tournaments in the country, drawing more than 500 teams to NYC.
If your kids love soccer, we encourage you to come see what MSC has to offer. Attend a training session; meet our coaches; speak with our parents or players.
Starting at ages 3-5 with our Development Academy, MSC has a professionally-developed curriculum designed to teach the skills eventually needed to play at the highest levels, taught by soccer professionals in age-appropriate ways. They play fall and spring outdoor seasons, futsal in winter, pick-up and league soccer during the summer. The goal is long-term development and nurturing love for the game; winning matches is the eventual byproduct, not the focus.
Our home fields are state-of-the-art turf and grass fields on the newly-renovated complex at Randall's Island, now one of the most spectacular soccer venues in the country. Randall's island is easily accessible from NYC burroughs and the surrounding area. The club offers chaperoned buses to practices on Randall’s Island from the east and west sides of Manhattan.
In addition to Randall's, our teams practice in Central Park, Riverside Park, Chelsea Waterside Park, Pier 40, and Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx. In the winter months, we train mostly in Manhattan, at City College facilities and gyms in and around the Upper East and Upper West Side.
