MSC Thunder and Lightning

MSC Thunder and Lightning are seeking talented and committed players at all positions to join our teams for the upcoming season.

Under the direction of Coach Manny Woldamanuel and his staff, the teams last year won their divisions at the Columbia Fall Tournament, participated in showcase events in Maryland, Virgnina, New York and North Carolina, sent a team to a Northeast Regional Tournament, and played in the Region 1 Eastern Regional League and National Capitol Soccer League.  We offer a complete program of year-round training, focused on player development that promotes effort, respect and sportsmanship.

We train three times per week beginning after the fall high school season.  In late fall, we participate in three tournaments, in winter play an indoor league, and in spring play a full league season and two tournaments.  Home games are played at the Maryland Soccerplex and training is based in lower Montgomery County.

Coach Manny Woldamanuel is the founder and head coach of Top Rank Soccer Academy. Manny played youth soccer with MSC and the Baltimore Bays, was selected as a regional player within the US National Team Player Pool and also trained in Italy. Coach Manny‚Äôs ability to teach the game to youth players makes him among the best coaches in the area.  He has coached teams at all levels of play, from classic to travel levels, and trained ODP and high school teams.  He holds a USSF "D" coaching license.   Manny is assisted by Steve Weiss, Ramsey Freeman and Pete Morillo.
