Soccer at Manhattan Kickers FC - Battery Park Manhattan Kickers FC - Battery Park 1 Photo 1 Video

Our goal as a coaching staff is to develop each player individually so that they can progress through the levels of the Manhattan Kickers Football Club (ages 4-12) and into MLS Academies or our affiliate club, Metropolitan Oval (ages 13-18). 

We train at least three times during the week from September through June using a curriculum that focuses intensely on individual ability and game intelligence.Practice sessions aim to develop individual technique including dribbling, passing, shooting, and tactics (decision-making).

On weekends, the players ages 5-8 will participate in small-sided games (4v4, 3v3, 2v2) in a low-pressure environment where the focus is on utilizing the skills that were honed in training. We are strictly focused on player development (both short- and long-term) and not concerned with competition until the players are ready. In the small-sided environment, the players will have more exposures to the ball as well as be an active participant in a match. Players ages 9-12 will play games against local competition.

MKFC's club teams (U6-U11) have a 10-month season running from late August through late June. For ages U4 and U5, the club offers a seasonal Little Kickers program as well as satellite programs in Queens and Brooklyn. During the summer, the club offers MKFC camps as well as affiliate camps. We also offer a trip for selected players to Barcelona and the Mediterranean International Cup.
