The 3 primary categories in which to compare MA Soccer Clubs are Technical Director, Coaches and History of Developing Players
When making a decision on what club to select for your child we ask you to compare us to any Soccer Club in MA in these 3 categories.
Facilities and fields are essentially the same for all clubs (ours are excellent), and competition is virtually the same for all MA clubs as we play in the Maple League, New England Premiership as do almost all MA Clubs.
- Technical Director – Creation and implementation of a soccer club’s training program and curriculumn is done by the Technical Director. Boston Storm FC has the most experienced and most educated Technical Director in Massachusetts holding the highest coaching licenses in the world. He is the only Technical Director to have been Head Coach of professional soccer team in Europe and the United States. The only Technical Director in MA to coach in the CONCACAF Olympic Qualification Tournament. The only Technical Director in MA to have a UEFA and USSF “A” Coaching License. Coach Lukens is only 1 of 2 Technical Directors in MA to have previously served as Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association Director of Coaching.
- Coaches – Boston Storm FC has Coaches and Regional Technical Directors that are equal or superior to all MA Club Coaching Staffs. Boston Storm FC has brought in Elite Coaches from around the world with high level playing backgrounds to train your children. Go to any other MA club’s web sites and compare our coaching staff to theirs and you will find our staff is the leader in the state of MA.
- History – The Boston Storm has helped develop and provide high level playing opportunities to 6 players who went onto the MLS from the Boston Storm, 2 female players that went onto professional soccer in WUSA from the Boston Storm and 7 Boston Storm players who played for the United States National Team. Compare this record of successful player development with any club in MA and you will find few if any Soccer Clubs in MA have a similar track record.
