Academy Program Overview

Program Overview

We are very proud to offer an academy program at MASC. The program is designed for those players aiming for a more competitive soccer experience at the U9 and U10 age groups and acts as a bridge between our rec and select programs.

At the U9/U10 age groups our coaches aim to develop skill, individual decision-making, and teamwork. We do this by creating game-like experiences in practices and facilitating player learning. We believe that promoting age-appropriate cognitive, technical and psychological development will lead to a life-long love of soccer and an easier step up to the select program.
