Gunners Summer Program

U5 – U7 Players

Birth Years: 2017 – 2015

MSA Soccer begins with Gunners for players U5, U6, U7, 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.

MSA offers a Gunners Summer Program to continue training and playing throughout the summer months for U5 – U7 players. The program will feature a combination of practice and game play into each session. It will be roughly 20/30-min of skill development, with 30/40-min of game play (3v3, 4v4, 5v5). Players can choose to attend one or two practices per week.

Players will be placed into practice groups and teams for games based on age and skill level.
