Our Unique Culture
Our environment is enthusiastic and contagious. From the moment you walk into our fields you will “feel the energy and positivity” of all our players and teams training and you'll immediately want to be part of our MYS family.
Our collaborative coaching model and fun style of play allows the players to be constantly challenged and rewarded. The core principles we introduce in the foundation phase are mastered in the competitive phase. Our directors and parent coaches take immense pride in delivering age appropriate training sessions and managing their teams consistent with our core values, philosophy and playing style.
We create the perfect platform for player development and creating the best possible experience for each player and team. It also continually challenges us to reflect and raise our standards in every aspect of our club from: player development; coaching education; facilities; administration; player health & safety; parent engagement & education.
DEVELOPING THE INDIVIDUAL FIRST
Players who go through our MYS program learn valuable life skills that help to develop the “whole individual”. Through this holistic approach to player development, players will learn about teamwork, leadership, discipline, time management, sportsmanship, respect, dealing with adversity, responsibility, confidence, and commitment. These traits have served our alumni, on and off the field, long after their soccer careers are over. It has build great character!
Player Developmental Process
INTRODUCTION | U6 & U7
An introduction to the game with a focus on small-sided games and activities to teach and learn the basic skills and concepts of the game. Most importantly to have “FUN” and love to play!
LOVE TO PLAY
GRASSROOTS | U8 & U9
A focus on the individual developing a core foundation of technical skill and game understanding. We encourage risk-taking and making mistakes over holding back due to fear of failure.
ENCOURAGED TO MAKE MISTAKES
FOUNDATION | U10 & U11 - C DIVISION
Consideration of physical maturity and poor results do not obscure the focus on long term development. We challenge more athletic players to become more technical and not reliant on their physical traits. We encourage players to compete fearlessly regardless of their size or abilities.
That’s coed program for older age group. C division is in town only.
A division is travel recreational league and we play with local towns around like Berlin, Hartford , Manchester, Glastonbury and South Windsor.
LOVE TO BE CHALLENGED
COMPETE | U12+ A DIVISION
