It is that time of year again! It is time to prepare for those long, cold winter months. While you may be stuck indoors for much of the winter, you don’t have to put aside your soccer fun until the spring. Massachusetts Youth Soccer is returning to Waltham with its 2013 Winter Technical Development Center.  The Technical Development Center program is a tremendous opportunity for highly motivated players to develop their technical skills and to increase the speed of their play. Under the direction of our Director of Coaching, Ian Mulliner, the sessions will continue to be dynamic, fast-paced and will focus on all areas of technical development.
