  • With MSA's premier sports facilities, our ABK teams have immediate access to stability, consistency, and convenience.
  • Academy teams will now participate in both sessions of the West Michigan Futsal League.

Not to mention, the goal for ABK is to challenge every team and athlete and develop them to their maximum potential, both on and off the field.  Our #BeyondTheSport initiative connects players to all 3 areas of development: Character, Capability, and Community. We are all about developing the whole person, not just the player.
