U5-8 Development Academy

If you have any questions, please contact Director, Chip Wonderlin chip.wonderlin@manhattansc.org



The MSC Development and Training Academy is a highly successful training program for U5, U6, U7, and U8 girls and boys who are interested in improving their soccer skills. The Academy provides exposure to advanced coaching for players who want to prepare for more advanced travel soccer programs, or simply for those players who want to improve their skills to get more enjoyment out of the game.  For the past six seasons over 70% of the players who ultimately were accepted into the U9 Academy had previously trained within the U5-8 Developmental Academy program.  The program teaches players within a structured, detailed, and sequential curriculum, constructed by Director of Coaching, Ray Selvadurai, who has close to a decade and a half experience as an instructor, Academy Director, Coaching Director, and curriculum developer.  The Developmental Academy program for next season will launch in early September, and extend all the way through the following June. Development Academy players, may also have an opportunity to be invited to our full-blown U8 Academy Team rosters at the conclusion of the Fall season.
