During these Advanced/College Prep Academy years (ages 14-18), Maui United Soccer Club will look to continue to build upon the strong core of technical and tactical trainings during the Developmental Academy years with in-depth teaching and playing as a team (the collective) refining our system and style of play. With use of position-specific and functional training, each player will train and develop the unique qualities that make for “total futbol” Each position has different requirements, roles, and responsibilities for the team and during these ages, players can learn to both specialize in primary positions, but also develop an comprehensive and clear understanding of the team concept that will make them that multi-function at the next levels of the game which include both high school, college and professional soccer.
“Our goal is to prepare each of our MUSC players to be become confident and well-prepared as both student and soccer players. We always have an eye on their futures in college and encourage them to have vision, be ambitious, diligent and well-prepared. This program is for the most motivated and talented players on Maui and throughout Hawaii who have aspirations to play the game at the highest levels, including ODP Regional Teams. US National Teams and College Soccer. It is a motivated environment for motivated players. Each player will have year-round training opportunities, college-camp and competitive exposure both within Hawaii and on the mainland. The goal is to develop young people who are well prepared for the college level student/athlete opportunities.”
