MSA Academy Program Outline - Let the FUN continue!!!

 

A referral and approval is required to join the MSA Academy Program. Why?

  1. Because our driving force is not singularly focused. We truly desire placing each child in the program that matches their current level of interest & development so that each child & their family get the most out of their soccer experience.
  2. We want parents being comfortable because they made informed decisions regarding their child's soccer journey. That really matters to us here at MSA.

What does the MSA Academy Program offer?

  1. A fun, safe environment
  2. Fun practices where kids learn more advanced skills.
    1. 2 team practices per week guided by the MSA coach.
    2. 1 optional group practice per week guided by the MSA DOC & Jr Irish DOC. (NEW Fall '21)
    3. Group Practices - Specific Days TBD / Time 5:30-6:30 or 6:30-7:30
