The MSA recreational league provides a league that encourages players of all skills and ages a chance to enjoy the game of soccer. Players will be placed randomly on a team in their age group. Most players begin playing in our academy league, and many continue to play in this league until they become adults.
The Dynomites program is set up for our youngest players. Dynomites meet once a week on Saturdays for an hour and a half. Each week the players are divided into groups where they work on skills and play small sided games.
Players u11 and older looking for a more advanced or competitive experience have the option of joining a competitive team. These teams are formed every July during tryouts and once a player joins a team they will remain with that team until the following July. Some teams will add players later in the season if those players have not already joined a competitive team that year.
Players must be selected by a team’s coach to play in this league and register as competitive players with MSA. Once your son or daughter is selected on a team, your coach will provide you with information on how to register with MSA.
Competitive teams are responsible for determining the fees for playing on a competitive team, although the player is responsible for paying the MSA league fee.
Academy Soccer (U7 – U10)
Players u10 and under can supplement their recreational experience by training and playing with an Academy soccer team. Academy teams often provide weekly training and games led by professional coaches. Players are welcome to change Academy teams at any time, although they can only play for one team each week.
Academy teams are responsible for determining the fees for any additional Academy training and leagues. The MSA registration fee allows players to play for an Academy team, a recreational team, or both, for the same total fee.
The Mansfield Adult Soccer Association provides recreational teams for adult players 30 and older. We encourage all parents for MSA players to come out and enjoy the game their children love.
Mansfield Soccer Association (MSA) has been formed to create a healthy playing environment for children playing recreational soccer. MSA is committed to the growth of children while developing a love for the game of soccer. We hope each of you not only allows your child to come play soccer but wish each of you to get involved with MSA and your child’s team. We are about whole family fun not just the individual.
MSA is a non-profit organization totally funded by your child’s registration fee’s. We do not receive any money from outside government bodies.
The Association is comprised of a Board of Directors which is made up of an Executive Board (President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary). The rest of the board consist of Age and Gender level Commissioners, Webmaster, Director of Coaching and Director of Field and Games.
