For teams using the MSYSA for rostering, the maximum number of players will be 12 players for the U-9 and U-10 age groups and 16 players for the U-11 and U-12 age groups. For teams using U.S. Club Soccer for rostering, the maximum number of players will be 14 players for the U-9 and U-10 age groups and 16 players for the U-11 and U-12 age groups. All U-13 and older teams must roster through the MSYSA. Any U-12 team wishing to play in the Maryland State Cup and using this league as their qualifying league must roster through the MSYSA.
The U-14 and younger age groups play on Saturdays and the U-15 and older age groups will play on Sundays. In addition, we will also offer a U-15 age group on Saturdays.
