MSI Announces Participation in MLS GO to Enhance Youth Soccer Development in Montgomery County

Per MSI: Montgomery Soccer Inc (MSI), a premier youth soccer organization in Montgomery County, Maryland has signed on as an official league operator of MLS GO. Powered by Major League Soccer, MLS GO, is a recreational soccer program designed to increase participation and access for boys and girls outside of the existing soccer ecosystem. This initiative is poised to revolutionize youth soccer development and extend its benefits to all communities within the county.

In addition to offering state-of-the-art soccer training resources, MSI will introduce MLS GO via their comprehensive after-school programs for all children. These programs will not only impart soccer skills but will also promote character development, teamwork, and life skills, using soccer as a vehicle for personal growth. The program will be implemented with support from RCX Sports, the leaders in youth sports experiences, who have partnered with MLS to operate and manage MLS GO.

“We are delighted to take part in MLS GO to bring positive change through soccer to all corners of Montgomery County,” said Gus Delgado, Executive Director at MSI. “Our involvement goes beyond the game itself, reaching out to all communities and providing children with valuable life skills that extend far beyond the soccer field.”

MSI, renowned for its commitment to youth soccer development, eagerly embraces this opportunity to expand its impact. Engagement with MLS GO as a league operator aligns seamlessly with MSI’s core values and underscores its dedication to making soccer accessible to all, regardless of background or circumstances.

“Our participation in MLS GO signifies our commitment to enhancing the lives of young individuals through soccer,” said Delgado. “By delivering our afterschool programs to all areas of the county, we aim to create positive change and empower children with essential life skills alongside their soccer education.”

Participants in the program throughout Montgomery County will engage in an hour-long session that includes skills and drills as well as small-sided games. Players and coaches will have access to MLS GO’s digital training and coaching materials through MOJO, via a curated education curriculum for MLS GO, which includes engaging drills, tactical analysis, and individualized training schedules. The MLS GO program through MSI is a 5-week program, at a cost of $75 per player. Scholarships are available for students who participate in MCPS’s FARMs program through MLS GO AND MSI.

MLS GO and MSI have worked together on initiatives within the program to develop young players’ abilities as well as encourage a love of soccer and personal development. As part of their experience in MLS GO, each player will also receive a co-branded MLS uniform and receive a ticket to a D.C. United game with one parent receiving a ticket at a reduced price.

Both organizations are eagerly anticipating the launch of MLS GO’s pilot program this Fall and more in the coming months, with the afterschool initiatives in areas of need being a central focus.

About Montgomery Soccer Inc (MSI): Montgomery Soccer Inc (MSI) is a leading youth soccer organization in Montgomery County, Maryland, dedicated to providing high-quality soccer experiences for players of all ages.
