We are excited to announce that MTsc will soon begin a new chapter in its storied history as Oklahoma's largest youth soccer club. Beginning in August 2020, we will join 5 well-established clubs in northwest and central Arkansas for competitive league play in the Arkansas Premier League.
Beginning in August 2020, MTsc's new competitive program will join 5 well-established clubs in northwest and central Arkansas for competitive league play in the Arkansas Premier League. With thoughtful scheduling and planning, our league selection results in only 3 Saturdays away from Tulsa per season with no required overnight trips (although, you may well decide to spend a fall or spring Saturday night in scenic NW Arkansas after a fun Saturday of soccer).
Simply put, we share a common vision for youth soccer and we believe we can begin a new era with league play across state lines that results in short, weekend trips in nearby, scenic locations with like-minded clubs. Soccer should be fun ... and with creative scheduling, our short trips between eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas will be just that for the families involved.
MTsc Competitive & Junior Program Leadership
Our competitive and junior academy programs will have a decidedly different look and feel than existing programs in the Tulsa area. At the heart of our club is a storied recreational program that has led soccer within the greater Tulsa area since MTsc's creation over a decade and a half ago. That will not change. Our new competitive and junior academy programs are designed to supplement and support our recreational program in a way that allows for a natural transition for players who want to elevate their game while remaining part of the same soccer family; the MTsc family.
We see no need for the divide that currently exists between recreational soccer and competitive soccer in so many clubs, here at MTsc they are all part of the same club, the same entity but with the soccer expertise necessary for success. This UNITED approach between recreational, junior academy (the bridge) and competitive soccer begins with leadership and we are delighted to announce that our new competitive and junior academy programs will begin under the guidance of two long-time club administrators who carry the credentials needed to drive our 2 new programs forward but who have also demonstrated a love of and support for the recreational game.

As a foundation to the new MTsc Competitive and Junior Academy Programs, MTsc is honored to be selected as the future home of the Roberto Baggio Horst Wein Center for Coaching Education and Player Development. MTsc has joined hands with some of the biggest names in European coaching and we are bringing UEFA Pro Instructors to Tulsa later this year assuming all travel concerns and European pandemic concerns are behind us. There is much more to come from this exciting announcement as we continue to roll out the latest additions to MTsc.
Roberto Baggio, an Italian former professional footballer who mainly played as a striker, or as an attacking midfielder was capable of playing in several offensive positions. He is the former president of the technical sector of the Italian Football Federation. Roberto was born in 1967 in Caldogno, Italy and was nicknamed "The Devine Ponytail". MTsc thanks Marcello Nardini and his UEFA pro colleagues for helping MTsc build something very special and different for our young future soccer stars.
