Why MSI Classic League?

Soccer is a game with levels of play for everyone. The beginning level of competitive (Montgomery Soccer) soccer is “recreational soccer” or “rec” (with a focus on fun, sportsmanship and an introduction to the rules of the game. For some children, after a year or so playing rec, they are ready for a higher level of competition. At this point at age 8, alternatives to recreational soccer are either the MSI Classic League or Travel (Premier) Soccer. The logistics of travel soccer can be too demanding for some families as games can be up to two hours’ drive away. The MSI Classic League is a great option – all games are held in Montgomery County and the level of play is far more challenging than that of the recreational soccer leagues. MSI Classic League also allows professional coaches along with volunteer coaches to participate in the league, thus providing Brit-Am Soccer Academy the opportunity to develop boys and girls within a competitive environment within the MSI Classic League.

Our Mission

The Brit-Am All-Star Academy was established for the specific purpose of developing a player’s first youth soccer program. Our goals are to achieve a transparent long term development process in which players of all levels can grow as individuals and as soccer players. The Academy now takes pride in having a program that develops players for elite travel programs and assists them in pursuing a long and enjoyable soccer journey at levels of the game. By placing emphasis on player development first, developing great coaches, and providing them with support as an organization, and operating with maximum administrative efficiency, the All-Star Academy is a fantastic place to grow.

The club also provides coaching education through workshops, conventions, private mentoring, ongoing education, and licensing. Our dedication to Coach education ensures that as an Academy, our staff is up to date with modern training methodology, best practices, and curriculum application for all our players

Culture & Conduct

Our players, parents, and coaches’ code of conduct provides the Academy with clear principles and information that help our community understand and embrace our culture and values. With clear and consistent guidelines, the atmosphere we strive for in the Academy is embraced by all of our members each day.

Team & Player Programs

Our Academy teams compete in local youth outdoor and indoor leagues as well as local tournaments within the appropriate level of skill to ensure a balanced competition, which helps develop better long-term developmental goals. The Academy also provides our players with specialized position and skill training for all players.

Administration

The Brit-Am Soccer Academy All-Star program seeks to make the on and off the field benefits of the game available to all children. The Academy’s operations are managed by the All-Star Academy administrative staff and a group of dedicated coaches. The Academy also has a parent volunteer to be manager, and a team treasurer, who helps organize the team’s game and travel logistics.

Our Soccer Community

It is the positive supportive role that our parents play in helping us build a successful development environment for their child.  That makes the foundation for our training methodology to succeed.  Therefore, we consistently communicate our objectives with our community.  The growth of each player is always being carefully monitored and training is always adjusted to meet each player and team’s needs.

To maximize the development potential of a young soccer player, parents are expected to:

  • Encourage the player’s efforts and support the player’s at ALL times.
  • No coaching from sidelines – coaches will provide guidance, parents will provide positive energy.
  • Always exemplify excellent sideline behavior – every member of our Academy will at all times display great sportsmanship worthy of being role models for our players and community.
