MTSA Premier is looking for dedicated soccer players to add and compliment  our team.  

MTSA does not hold mega try-outs; rather will bring players to our practice so they can get to know the teammates, understand the coach while we view them in a common setting.  


We view ourselves as a College-prep premier soccer team (see Blog ) .   Our teaching is learning the entire game along with our possession style  will allow every player to easily adapt to any coach or team as they proceed in their careers. We offer support material ( example link), film tactical study and of course field/skill training by our certified trainer.  Last year we also did core training in the winter and Futsal practice in a local gym.   During the regular season we practice at Chestnut Branch Park in Mantua, NJ.  Our upcoming U16 season summary of tournaments and cost are posted on our site for your review.


I would love for you to come out to one of our practice sessions to meet the team and talk to our Coach/Trainer.  Feel free to call me at (609) 410-0440 or email me at

Team spirit and camaraderie are very important to our team. Bringing long term dedicated young men together to learn, compete, and support each other as they execute team goals. Our concept is simple – bring enthusiastic soccer players together who have the skill, desire, and dedication to learn and compete at a high level. Teach them the entire game.
