Philosophy

The MSC coaching staff first and foremost focuses on player development. Each MSC coach believes that MSC players need to have a strong technical foundation in the fundamentals of soccer. Each practice session is geared towards players maximizing the amount of touches they receive. As each player progresses in building their technical foundations, the tactical side of soccer is worked into the practice sessions. MSC coaches believe in and encourage a creative and possession style of gameplay.

Every coach in MSC is committed to providing a higher level of coaching and expertise to the soccer players in Muscatine and the surrounding communities.
