Please remember that requests made by parents or coaches are just that: requests.  While we do our best every year to accommodate people's requests, we are not always able to. There are many factors we have to weigh during team formation and we consider the good of all players when forming teams. Our goal is to create a safe and equitable playing opportunity for every child. Thank you for your understanding.



While most coaches will receive their rosters on August 9th at the coach meeting, there may be some who are away on vacation or unable to attend for other reasons. If you do not receive a call from your child's coach on August 9, please don't worry, It takes time for all players to be contacted. If you have not heard from a coach by August 16, please email the registrar at [email protected] and we can sort it out for you.



Practice days and times during the week are typically one or two days a week and are up to your team coach (more information to follow).


Games will held on Saturday or Sunday (more information to follow),

Please wait until August 16th to contact us regarding your child's team/coach. Thank you.

Coaches Needed:

If you plan to coach, please register, if you haven’t already done so.

If you are contacted because your child's team needs a coach, please consider stepping up, even if you don't have coaching experience, we have resources and support we can share with you. Coaching is a fun and rewarding experience!

Coach Contact Information: [email protected]net

NOTE FROM YOUR Rec Coordinator ([email protected]) RE: VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENT:

We are a volunteer based organization.    Each team is required to help with an assigned volunteer opportunity – field setup/take down, or concession help.  Your coach will be notified of your team’s requirement & parents will be emailed or called the week prior to their scheduled volunteer time.   These tasks are crucial to a successful soccer season.

If you are a scholarship recipient, your volunteer requirement is 3 hours & you will be notified of your shift.

Finally, this season will be different (or it may be the same), it's too soon to know.   COVID flexibility is a MUST.   The league will follow all rules set forth by our governing association and local health officials and we expect parent's and players to do the same.  Any resistance will not be tolerated.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

The Folks at MRYSL.
