The Spring Soccer Program with MDSA is a shorter, less formal season with a focus on fun, friendly play and player development in a fully recreational environment.

Everyone Plays® – Balanced Teams – Open Registration
Positive Coaching – Good Sportsmanship – Player Development

COVID-19 RETURN TO PLAY PROTOCOLS

  • All sessions (practices and games) will strictly abide by the COVID-19 Return to Play Protocols in force at the time.
  • Older teams will be short-rostered (max. 10 players) to enable two teams at a minimum to be paired for weekend games. Teams will practice midweek individually.
  • Teams will be managed by Volunteer Coaches; support from pro coaches from Prestige Coaching will be available for support.

WHEN & WHERE

  • Registration opens January 5, 2021.
  • Games take place Saturday, March 29 through Saturday, May 22 (tentative).
  • Teams will be assembled by early March, with Coaches contacting players and starting practices (8U and up) after March 22.
  • There are no post-season games in Spring. The Spring program is intended to be less formal and gives players and parents the chance to just have some fun with no pressure about trying to advance to post-season play.
  • Games take place in the Concord/Clayton area. Fields may include: Boatwright Sports Complex, Highlands Park, Newhall Park, Pine Hollow Middle School, Silverwood Elementary, and possibly others.

FEES

  • Returning players from Fall 2020: $65
  • New players for 2020-21: $85 (see note below)
  • We do not offer Scholarships for our Spring Program.
  • The 2021 Spring Player Registration Fee is $65 plus a non-refundable AYSO Annual Membership Fee of $20.  The Spring Player Registration Fee is used to offset the cost of Spring uniform kits (shirt, socks and ball), field rental fees, equipment, and other incidental expenses.
  • $85 for Registrations from players that did not participate in the an AYSO Fall 2020 program ($65 + $20 AYSO Annual Membership Fee).

DIVISIONS

  • See the Age Chart below to determine your child’s division for Spring 2021.
  • We do not offer 5U or 7U divisions in Spring. If your child played in 5U or 7U for Fall, they will play in the 6U or 8U division in Spring respectively.
  • Older divisions (typically 12U upwards) are Co-Ed. The smaller nature of our Spring Program does not allow sufficient numbers for “gender-pure teams” at these age groups.
  • Co-Ed teams must abide by the Co-Ed Rules of Play and the Live Rule
  • Please note: we CANNOT accommodate any buddy/carpool/coach requests, due to the large size of our program, and our registration system does not support accommodating specific player/team placements following the principle of Balanced Teams. The only exception to this is the pairing of Coach/Assistant Coach volunteers who request to work together. For more info on volunteer pairings, contact our Coach Admin team.

EQUIPMENT

  • Players will receive a t-shirt, shorts and socks in their assigned team’s colors. Soccer ball, cleats/athletic shoes, and shinguards are to be provided by the parent.
  • Ball Sizes: 6U-8U – Size 3; 10U-12U – Size 4, 14U & Up – Size 5
