MASA, in conjunction with the Allegheny Force Football Club ("AFFC"), is pleased to announce the continuation of its foot skills training program for the upcoming soccer season entitled "Feet First".

Feet First is intended to provide MASA's U6 and U8 players with enhanced foot skills training taught by coaches of classic (cup) level teams, which play in the highest level of competitive inter-club soccer offered in the area. AFFC's coaches bring years of knowledge and experience as both players and coaches to the Feet First program from which MASA's players will benefit. The U6 and U8 age groups are being targeted for the Feet First program in order to provide these players an opportunity to learn and practice their foot skills during this crucial stage in their soccer development. The fee for 7 sessions is only $50.

Players in the Feet First program, which is open to all registered U6 and U8 MASA players, will meet on Friday evenings at Murrysville Community Park ("MCP") on the Middle Fields from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. for training. These sessions, which are in addition to your son’s or daughter's regular team practices/games, will be led by AFFC's coaches and will focus exclusively on foot skills.

In addition, AFFC is offering all MASA players enrolled in the Feet First program a discounted rate ($50) to participate in the AFFC Force Juniors Fall Academy to be held on Sunday evenings from 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. at the Nike Site Field in Irwin. The AFFC Force Juniors Fall Academy, which normally costs $75 for U6 players and $100 for U8 players, provides a further opportunity for our MASA players to enhance their foot skills at the direction of experienced, professional coaches at a reduced cost. Further information regarding the AFFC Force Juniors Fall Academy can be found at, or by e-mailing Simon Austin at This email address is being protected from spambots.

As noted previously, the fee for the Feet First program is $50 per player, and advanced registration is required. We believe that the Feet First program will provide your son or daughter high quality instruction at a tremendous value. We strongly encourage all U6 and U8 MASA players to take advantage of this opportunity to improve their soccer skills in a fun and encouraging environment.
