Methacton United Soccer Club is proud to announce our next evolution: Methacton United Premier! Launched to address the development needs of our top players and teams, Methacton United Premier represents the fruition of our long-term player development strategy that began with the hiring of Director of Coaching Andy Wilkes and continued with the launch of our Director's Development Program in 2011.
Joining our staff to launch this next evolution are two new coaches will exemplary resumes:
US Men's National Team, Pool Player (2 caps), 1985-1990
US Youth National Teams, 1981-1985
Major League Soccer, Drafted by Kansas City Comets
What is Premier?
The Premier label is reserved for our most successful and most promising teams, who are coached by dedicated professionals using a more advanced curriculum tuned to the specific needs of the team.
Premier travel teams will play in more competitive leagues, travel greater distances to find appropriate competitions, and be expected to commit to a year-round program.
A Lighter Option
Additionally, for those teams on the verge of becoming Premier teams, especially at the younger age groups, we offer a "Lite" premier model, defined by an increased training frequency with a dedicated trainer and higher levels of competition.
Our Premier Lite travel teams will offer year-round training and playing opportunities, but a firm year-round commitment is not a pre-requisite, particularly at U12 and below. At Methacton United, we strongly believe in developing well-rounded players, and playing other sports is key to that development.
