U17 through U20 teams find this an excellent summer of preparation for College Showcases or cracking that College Varsity starting line-up.

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 provides a realistic schedule of games, at reasonable cost, while maintaining an excellent competitive level.

Opening League Date:  Saturday June 1

Final League Date:  Sunday July 28

Number of Regular Season Games:  Typically 8-12

Games will be primarily scheduled for Sundays on June 2, 9, 16, 23 & 30; July 7, 14, 21 & 28.


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 primarily play within their division (U20 & U23, although crossovers with other divisions will occur to maintain fresh competition throughout the summer).


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. Top teams play off at the end of the summer.


Awards:  MSSL CUP 2013 playoff in late July will crown the league champion. Separate MSSL Cups for U23 Men, U20 Men and U23 Women. U20 Women will be added if interest is sufficient.


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


Ages:  For 2013, qualifying players must be born on or after August 1, 1989, 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 jen@mssl.org.  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:   $625 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 modest facility costs at site games, while home team is responsible for field at single games.  A $200 bond is collected at the start of the season to cover fines and no-show ref fees; at the end of the season, the bond will be returned or rolled over to next season.
