MDSL starts the travel program at the U-10 level. Players must be age or grade appropriate to try out for 2016-2017:

  • U10 – 2008 Year of Birth or entering 3rd grade in the Fall of 2017

  • U11 – 2007 Year of Birth

  • U12 – 2006 Year of Birth or entering 5th grade in the Fall of 2017

  • U13 – 2005 Year of Birth or entering 6th grade in the Fall of 2017

  • U14 – 2004 Year of Birth or entering 7th grade in the Fall of 2017

  • U15 – 2003 Year of Birth or entering 8th grade in the Fall of 2017

 
All players must show valid birth certificates on the day of evaluations in order to be allowed on the field. New players will be required to purchase the uniform upon making the team.

Travel Registration

MDSL Travel registration will be open from March15th–April 17th for the Fall 2017/Spring 2018 Seasons.

MDSL intends to field teams starting in the U10 age group through U15 age group.  Players entering 3rd grade and born prior to August 1, 2009 are eligible to try-out for U10.  Beginning with the 2016/17 season the United States Soccer Federation changed guidelines for the creation of youth soccer teams.  MDSL began the shift to create teams by birth year, not grade year, starting with the incoming teams of 2016/17 and continuing for the 2017/18 incoming teams.  For 2017/18 U12 and above, which existed prior to the USSF changes, teams may be formed by grade or birth year.  If your player prefers to register for try-outs in their calendar year (i.e. player born Sept. of 2007 would play U12 with their grade level instead of under U11 age group which they would be eligible for) please notify MDSL in the appropriate spot on the registration page.  

Please note that the registration system is set up for grade level registration only for U12-U15 divisions. If you are choosing to play based on birth year (i.e. your child will be in 5th grade for Fall 2017, has 2007 birthday but wants to play U11 instead of U12), the registration system will only permit you to sign up for grade level. You proceed with registering for grade level, but when prompted you must indicate birth year as the Tryout Preference during the registration process. Once registration closes, we will move your player to the correct division and you will receive a confirmation email indicating the transfer of your registration to the birth year division.

A $40 tryout fee will be due upon registration, which will be applied to the overall registration fee if your child accepts a roster spot on a MDSL team for the Fall 2017/Spring 2018 Seasons. The overall registration fee will be $120 for teams planning to play YorkUSA, and $150 for teams planning to play CMSA. The MDSL Travel Committee and Head Coach for each team will decide in which league the team will participate before the tryouts begin.  In the event a spot is not offered to your child, you will be refunded the full amount of the try-out fee.  If your child is offered a roster spot and he/she declines the spot, the try out fee will be retained by MDSL. If your child accepts the roster spot, you will have 5 days to make payment on the balance of the registration (total registration minus try-out fee) via credit card on the website or by check.  Failure to pay in a timely manner may result in a player’s spot being offered to another player.  You will receive an email confirmation of your registration.
