About Clippers FC
Montclair Soccer Club was founded in Oakland in 1969, and the name has been changed as of May 8, 2023 to Clippers FC. The second generation of MSC players is now on the field and former players have become coaches, referees and board members – expanding a lifetime connection to the Club and a lifelong love for the game. Clippers is a non-profit organization run largely by volunteers striving to collectively create a supportive community that will allow our kids to thrive in youth soccer and build character as young people.
Clippers Football Club is a community led organization rooted in Oakland that develops skilled and motivated players at both the recreational and competitive levels. We strive to instill a love of the game no matter what age or level of play through both a fun, challenging environment and high-level coaching.
Personal: To instill the value of hard work, perserverence, respect for others (and themselves), and teamwork in all of our players.
Technical: To enable players to play both creative attacking and possession retention soccer, based on the situation when we have the ball and to win it back as quickly as possible when they have the ball.
