APPLY ONLINE - U20 & U23 MSSL MEN & WOMEN

MSSL provides a definitive, affordable venue for competition among players seeking to stay sharp and fit, and display their skills, during Summer 2007. MSSL's structure is geared to the transition player, --- players leaving their developmental youth club, playing in college programs, preparing to enter the ranks of adult and pro leagues. MSSL will provide a realistic schedule of games, at reasonable cost, while maintaining an excellent competitive level.

Opening League Date:  Sunday June 3

Final League Date:  Sunday July 29

Number of Regular Season Games:  Typically 10-12

Games will be primarily scheduled for Sunday afternoons on June 3, 10, 17 & 24; July 8, 15, 22 & 29. Games may be shifted to Saturdays as circumstances and schedules warrant.

 

Teams are anticipated to play two seventy-minute games most Sundays, with an occasional ninety minute single game. Mens teams are expected to participate on 5-6 of the listed dates, womens teams about 4-5 of the anticipated dates.

 

Fields:  MSSL will strive to create two to five separate geographically-dispersed game sites most weekends, where 4 to 12 teams may participate.

 

Refs:  MSSL expects to assign an experienced three-man system for each game. League Referee Assignor is Bob Mykulak (bobmykulak@yahoo.com)

 

League structure:  Teams will be flighted by competitive level. All teams within a Division will play a round-robin schedule. Additional games will be scheduled against teams in other flights, based partly on travel considerations, partly on competitive matchups.

 

Standings:  All game scores will be reported. Standings will be based upon games within the Division. Overall record, as well as Goals Scored and Goals Allowed will also be reported on this website.  Ties will be broken first by head-to-head games, then by goal differential.

 

Awards:  MSSL CUP 2007 will be awarded to the winner of a playoff held on Sunday July 22.

Procedures for MSSL Cup:

+ Teams play their regular season scheduled games

+ Rosters are frozen as of July 6 for MSSL Cup purposes

+ Teams declare whether they want to be considered for the U20 Mens or the U23 Mens or

        the U23 Womens MSSL Cup by July 12

+ Among the declarants, six teams are picked in each division. Top four point totals (3 for win, 1

        for tie) after games of July 15 qualify, plus two additional "Commissioner's Picks" (allowing

        some discretion to include teams that showed well in fewer games, or against

        tougher/older competition, etc.)

+ U20 MSSL Cup participants can utilize up to three overage players that were on their roster as

        of July 6 (unlike the the U20 Regional Cup which permits NO overage players)

+ No overage players allowed for the U23 MSSL Cup

+ Teams are divided into three-team groups and play two group games. Winners of the two

        groups meet in a final.

 

Rosters:  Up to 30 players per team; 18 can be listed for any one game.

 

Ages:  For 2007, qualifying players must be born on or after August 1, 1983, same as the cutoff date for U23 National Cup competition.

 

Carding:  MSSL is a fully-registered regional league with USASA, the national governing body for mens amateur soccer. While there are administrative costs in being properly registered and sanctioned, teams and players will also be able to participate in other leagues, tournaments and amateur national championships year-round, in addition to their participation in MSSL.

 

Scheduling Conflicts:  All scheduling agreements must be emailed by BOTH teams to MSSLsoccer@aol.com.  All disputes, conflicts, etc. must be emailed to the same address where they will be quickly resolved.  MSSL Games Commissioner has final word on all disputed items, and both teams must abide by decision.

 

Cost:   $485 for MSSL Fees which includes cost of league registration with USASA;  teams must also card players ($15 each) and register the team with USASA ($125);  teams split cost of referees and assignor for each game, as well as facility costs at site games, while home team is responsible for field at single games. 

 

Sponsors:  Being sought for Trophy Awards, and for possible playoff weekend.

 

Deadline Date for Applications:   May 5, 2007

 

National & Regional Cups:  MSSL teams can declare for USASA U23 Regional Cup competition through MSSL. Teams must declare and submit payment of $150 by no later than May 30, 2007. A playoff will be conducted (within the context of the MSSL league schedule) to determine MSSL representatives to the Regionals held on July 14-15. Last year MSSL sent four of the 16 teams qualifying for the U23 Mens Regional Finals, and enjoyed seeing an MSSL team get to the Championship match; MSSL also sent four teams to the U23 Womens Regional Finals, and again placed a Finalist. The U23 Regional Champion proceeds to the National Final Four in early August. There is also a U20 Regional competition on July 21-22; however, there is no national competition in this age group.
