What makes Metropolitan FC different is how we view our role within American soccer. There are a myriad of clubs in this country whose aim is to bring soccer to as many children as possible. But we are not one of them. We are here to help the aspiring soccer player who's vision for their future in the game matches our own. Our goal is to locate and develop young players, who love the game and work hard, into professional level players, regardless of ethnicity, sex, or economic class. We have a saying at the club, "Metropolitan FC is available to anyone, but it's not for everyone". We pursue long term development rather then short term success, and demand quality rather then quantity, resulting in less teams and smaller training groups. This allows our coaches to be detail oriented and more focused on the development of the individual player. Quality is also demanded of the coaches. At Metropolitan each coach is held accountable for each player they work with,in order that they continue to improve their coaching ability and, in turn, become better at improving the players they work with.”
