The Metuchen Town Soccer Club organizes a recreational soccer program that emphasizes equal participation and instruction for all while de-emphasizing winning and losing, league standings and all-star concepts. Their goal is for children to enjoy playing soccer while also learning sportsmanship, cooperation and the skills of the game.
The program is open to kindergarten through eighth graders who live or go to school in Metuchen or whose parent works in Metuchen. The season consists of 10 games, which are played on Saturdays beginning in early September and ending in mid-November. Second through eighth graders also have one weeknight practice per week. There are no make-ups for rain-outs.
The club believes that education and community involvement are extremely important. That is why the Tony Black Memorial Fund (named after the founder of our organization) provides college scholarships to Metuchen High School seniors. The Club also provides new soccer equipment to Metuchen schools and funding for other activities that benefit the children of Metuchen.
Oh, btw. In case you didn’t notice, MetuchenLiving has a team participating this season! And what a thrill to see so many kids on a Saturday morning running and kicking soccer balls in Edgar Field! Check out the schedule on their website and give the event a visit and help cheer them on! Cheer not just the MetuchenLiving Team of course! 😉

The Metuchen Town Soccer Club (MTSC), the recreational soccer program in Metuchen, awards a number of scholarships each year in honor of Tony Black, the tireless, fun-loving founder of MTSC. Tony’s commitment to the game, the children of Metuchen and the spirit of sport in this community led to MTSC becoming a program that’s 550-players strong today. In his memory, MTSC gives college scholarships to several Metuchen High School players for their community service, academic achievements and love for the game of soccer. Young women and men who are varsity soccer players, have demonstrated these qualities and are planning on going to college next year are encouraged to apply.
