The registration period will last from June 5, 2020 - 11:59PM June 19, 2020.  
There will be no late registrations so please do not hesitate!

 

 


Due to the restrictions placed on youth sports by the state of Pennsylvania and EPYSA as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we're getting a bit of a late start this year.  Consequently, this is a short window for registration.  We are still unsure what tryouts will look like because even though Gov. Wolf has said York County may go to "Green" on June 12, EPYSA will still be restricting the number of players and coaches per fiield and players will still be required to socially distance on the field.  Tryout instructions and dates will be sent to your email as soon after registration closes as possible.

It is our intention to conclude the tryout process before the end of June if possible.

 


A few notes about registration - 

In order to register, players must have been born between January 1, 2006 and December 31, 2012.

You will need a digital picture appropriate for a photo ID and a digital copy of your child's birth certificate in order to complete registration.

Registration fees are $155 for the season.  A $50 tryout fee is due at the time of registration.  This fee is only refundable if your child is not offered a roster spot after tryouts.  If your child accepts a roster spot, the $50 will go towards the $155 registration fee.

Registration fees will be refunded either in full or in part if the season is cancelled early due to a response to COVID-19.

The MDSL Travel Regulations can be found here.

Lastly, a quick word about the creation of travel teams because each year there are rumors about MDSL disbanding or changing teams.

As we have done each of the last 10+ seasons, after registration closes, we will look at the number of players who have signed up in each age group and determine what teams can be created.  Whenever possible, we like to keep the same age groupings year to year so that there is continuity in the teams.  However, we never know how many players will return or how many new players will decide this is the year for travel soccer for them. It is never our goal to turn away MDSL travel players because several of their former teammates decided MDSL soccer was no longer for them and we can no longer form a team at that age group.  That sometimes requires us to make adjustments we don't anticipate.  So, until we have completed registration and know how many players are looking to participate, we cannot tell you for certain for what team your child will be trying out.  This has been how MDSL has created teams for more than 10 years.  Our intentions are always to maintain team age group continuity whenever possible.

ABOUT OUR TRAVEL PROGRAM

Our travel program will field teams for girls and boys U-10 thru U-15 age groups (we will field a U9 group if there are at least 10 players in that age range that register for tryouts) in order to align the league with US Soccer Player Development Initiatives. The team rosters are active from August 1 - June 30 and typically adhere to the following schedule:


  • Fall Season practices may begin August 1 and games occur September - November
