U12 TEAMS PLAY LIJSL & EDP
At U12 the Massapequa Soccer Club maintains our focus on development with the potential for a mid-year transition from LIJSL league play to that of EDP for our top players/team. U12 affords all players similarly rigorous and comprehensive training. The U12s remain a part of our Core Program and as such continue to participate in our clinics as well as our vertical training.
Top players will be prepared for the demands of our Elite Program at U13. Those at levels below will progress to a developmentally appropriate team as part of our Travel program at U13.
