MSC will be providing supplemental Skills & Drills training on Friday evening during the season. Starting Friday, May 3rd we will be holding training sessions open to all MSC players. The sessions will take place on Fridays at Kronenberger Park and are meant to supplement the training you are doing with you coach. The focus will be on foot skills and ball control. The sessions will take place at 5:30 PM and the complete schedule is available here.
MSC is happy to offer specialized goal keeper training. Goalkeeper training will take place Tuesday and Thursday evenings (unless specified otherwise) at Kronenberger Field. The first session for the Spring season will be on April, 23rd. Dates and times are as follows:
We are fortunate to have a well equipped concession stand at Kronenberger Park. In order to make the concession stand available to our club members we publish a schedule each season assigning In-Town teams to specific weeks in which they are required to staff the stand during their In-Town session.
It is each coach's responsibility to be sure that at least one parent from each team helps in the snack bar on the date(s) assigned to their team. THANK YOU in advance for volunteering during your teams assigned date(s)!
On your team's scheduled day, at least one person will need to report to the snack bar 15 minutes before game-time until after the games are completed. Only one team is assigned for each time slot so if no one shows up there is no back up. Failure to honor this responsibility will result in closure of the concession stand for that age group.
The club will attempt to schedule the team assigned to staff the concession stand to the field closest to the stand so the parents working the stand can still see their child's game. Parents are encouraged to reach out to their coaches notifying them that they will take care of the team's concessions stand commitment.
