The Madison Soccer Club is very optimistic about the continued development of the program for its youth soccer players. There were many bright spots throughout 2017, including an overhaul of the recreation program, FOUR fall Morris County Youth Soccer Association (MCYSA) flight-winning teams, and continued efforts to expand our year round training program offerings.
The recreation program partnered with the New York Red Bulls to create a fun and challenging environment for our soccer players to develop their skills. Our recreation season started with a kick-off celebration that featured activities for all skill levels and a very special appearance by Sean Davis (NYRB starting midfielder). The season was very productive, and created an opportunity for all of our players to train and enjoy the game.
At our annual end-of-season tournament, almost 500 players enjoyed a full day of exciting soccer matches. There were also plenty of big smiles for our special guests: Red Bull Keeper Evan Louro and the Red Bull Street team. The division winners were: Middleborough (Kindergarten), Manchester City (Grades 1&2 Girls), Liverpool (Grades 1&2 Boys), Thunder (2008/2009 Girls), Power (2008/2009 Boys), Madison Montessori (2007 & Older Girls), and Pipe Works Services (2007 & Older Boys). The Madison Soccer Club would like to thank all the players, parents/coaches and trainers for an exciting recreation season.
The Madison Soccer Club wants to give a special thank you to this year’s recreation sponsors:

MSC has always been one of the most competitive clubs in the MCYSA, fielding teams that compete in the highest flights at almost every age group for both boys and girls. In the Fall 2017 MCYSA league season, Madison travel teams continued to build on our success with 4 first place flight winners: the 2009 Mustangs, 2009 Blasters, 2006 Jaguars, and 2004 Thorns.
The youngest teams, the 2010 girls and boys, had great success this fall and are doubling in size to make the jump from 4v4 to 7v7 soccer for the spring season. Many other teams saw great success and growth from the previous season, and look forward to their continued development during the spring season.
Lastly, the Madison Soccer Club made a push to offer more year round training opportunities for soccer players always looking to improve their skills. Led by Mike Chipoletti’s summer, winter, and pre-tryout clinics, the club added summer soccer camps, goalie and goal scoring training, and winter futsal training. These programs have always been pivotal in developing our players’ skills in the offseason, and to continue players’ development, more programs were added. All programs have received great feedback and the club looks forward to growing these and other programs to provide year-round training opportunities for its players.
The Madison Soccer Club has the mission of creating the best soccer environment for all levels of soccer players, and in 2017, has made great strides in fulfilling this mission. In 2018, the MSC looks to further the effectiveness of all programs, and be efficient in providing the best training opportunity for all players to enjoy playing soccer. Announcements will be made soon for our spring clinics for 2011/2012 girls and boys, as well as other training/tryout opportunities.
