NSCAA conducted a comprehensive assessment of MVSA on December 16-17, 2014.  Directors, coaches, etc were interviewed as part of an in-depth evaluation of our youth player development program. Comparing our club to the top programs across the country, they worked to identify what we are doing well and where there is room for improvement.  The results of that assessment will be shared with the club as soon as they are available.
