Gunners

U6, U7, U8 Players | August – May | Open Enrollment

MSA Gunners

MSA Soccer begins with Gunners for players U6, U7, and U8. Gunners will serve as an effective bridge into our competitive teams. Our professional staff will provide age-appropriate technical instruction in a training environment featuring exciting games and skill activities.

Typically, Gunners is for players that excel at the recreational level and desire an additional environment that is more competitive with advanced coaching. It is however, open to all players. Players will be divided into training groups based on age, skill level, and soccer experience. Training focuses on the development of individual player skills, which is necessary for success once players move into the competitive team environment at U9 and beyond.

The program follows the school year calendar, with a new season beginning each August. We also offer a Summer Program from June-August.
