MSC Stallions 98: Welcome

Welcome to the Stallions 98 Page

The MSC Stallions 98 is Montgomery Soccer Club's premiere soccer team for girls born on or after August 1, 1998 (U15 for Spring 2014).

The Stallions 98 participate in Washington Area Girls Soccer League (WAGS - Division 1) and MSYSA State cup as well as various tournaments throughout the year. The girls are coached by Nelson Abreu and Oscar Caceres. Goalkeeper training is provided by Matt Pasquinelli and Paul Lubao.

Every team out there seems to include an obligatory statement about how, unlike all those other teams, this team is truly different and focus on fun, "development" and the individual technical skills, teamwork and fitness necessary to play high-level, quality soccer, We hope this is really true for each and every team that writes that!

To find out it if is true for the Stallions 98, you are encouraged to come and watch us play and are cordially invited to train with us. Come and see how the coaches, parents, and players really interact and behave. Talk to us and ask questions. In fact...do that with any team you are interested in and don't base your decisions on a paragraph on a website!

 Feel free to contact Michael Howson at michael.howson@verizon.net with any questions about the Stallions or DC/MD/VA area soccer! We look forward to hearing from you.
