What should a prospective player know before coming to SMC to play:  

“Soccer players who are interested in SMC need to be technically sound and have a tactical understanding of the sport of soccer.  If they have that then I need to figure out if they want to be more than just soccer players and potentially become student-athletes on the men's soccer team. This means representing the school, the Athletic Department, and the Soccer program with class, hard work, and character at all times.  We are building individuals who carry out these values on the field, in the classroom, as well as in the community.”
