Grassroots Academy

Grassroots Academy

MCSA's six-week Grassroots Academy sessions are for children as young as four and old as eleven. The aim of these sessions is to ensure the first soccer experiences of every child are positive and memorable. We practice 2-3 days per week. Outside of scrimmages, there are no official games. We're looking to introduce the basics of the game and instill a life-long passion for soccer during this time. 

With an enthusiastic and age-appropriate teaching model, MCSA’s staff teaches the skills needed to play and fall in love with the sport.

We aim to develop creative players who become ‘master artists’ of the soccer ball. In adopting this style of soccer, we foster an environment free from the fear of failure, where our players can explore and be creative without the fear of making mistakes. By doing so, all of our kids are in a place where they can grow and realize their potential both as players and people.

Early bird registration is now open for both Ukiah and Willits March 23 - May 1 session. Save $10 on your registration fee by signing up before March 1.

We also offer a $10 sibling discount.

At the end of the six weeks, all first time will earn their "wings" and receive an MCSA practice jersey!
