Team Levels

Contact one of our club directors for full details

Premier Teams (Gold) | U9-U19

MSA Premier is the highest level of training and competition within MSA club soccer. Our Premier players and coaches will demonstrate the highest level of commitment to excellence in skills, fitness, work  ethic, attitude and sportsmanship. Premier players and coaches will demonstrate a commitment to the club, their team and their own soccer development.

Players and teams compete against premier teams from leagues and clubs throughout the region and nation, and based on age and level, teams will compete in 4-6 tournaments annually, that carry additional fees.

Challenge Teams (Blue) | U9-U19

MSA Challenge is the first stage of “travel” club soccer. Travel is not as extensive and time consuming as “Premier” soccer, as it is typically limited and shorter distances. The goal of MSA Challenge is to provide an environment in which the level of competition, commitment, and player development falls between that of the recreation and premier levels. All Challenge coaches are paid, experienced club soccer coaches and have a responsibility to develop the soccer skills and team play of their players.

With two training sessions per week, Challenge players will rapidly increase their skills and abilities. Challenge teams participate in the PA West Soccer Association leagues. Based on age and level, teams typically compete in 1-3 tournaments annually.

This program is geared towards the players that have played recreational soccer for a while, and want to “jump to the next level”, in order to prepare for grade school, middle school or high school soccer. It also prepares players that are ready to commit to the Premier level and need to refine their skills.
