Middletown Youth Soccer Club

2018 Spring Competitive Travel Program Information  

The Middletown Youth Soccer Club Spring Competitive Travel Soccer Program offers a place for U8-U19 players to test their skills and represent MYSC participating in the Rhode Island Youth Super Liga and other tournaments sanctioned by Soccer Rhode Island.  This program requires a higher level of commitment from players AND PARENTS than the Fall Recreational Program as the goal is to develop increased player levels and competitive team play.

What is Spring Competitive Travel Soccer?
 * MYSC Spring Travel soccer teams complete in the Rhode Island Youth Super Liga, which is a statewide league comprised of teams ranging from  U8 through U20 age groups.
 * Each team will be scheduled to play an eight game schedule (U19/U20 is a seven game schedule), comprised of four home and four away games that  will be scheduled on weekends between roughly late March and early June.
 * Teams are normally not cp-ed, but it is not uncommon for girls to play on a boys team for a variety of reasons, especially at the lower age groups.
 * Pre-season practices begin in January with one-hour weekend practices in the Newport Boys and Girls gymnasiums.  Once weather and field  conditions permit, team will begin practicing twice/week at the MYSC Wyatt Road complex.

Player Registration
Spring 2018 Competitive Travel Soccer registration is now open.
 * Players are required to be registered no later than 12:00 noon on their designated player evaluation date or they will not be permitted to participate in their designated evaluation session.

 * Refunds: Absolutely NO refunds will be given AFTER TEAM FORMATIONS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED.  However, if a player is not assigned to a team, MYSC will refund the full registration fee.

Additional Costs
In addition to the Registration Fee, there are additional anticipated costs that ARE NOT included with Player Registration;
 * Uniforms: The same 2017 Spring uniform will be used again in Spring 2018.  All players without a current uniform will be required to purchase a complete set.  Depending on size, these new uniforms will cost approximately $70-$80.  MYSC normally is able to use the same uniform style for 3-4 years.  Further uniform information will be available after the teams have been formed (early December).
 * Equipment: Players are required to wear some sort of soccer cleat/athletic sneaker and shin guards.  NO FOOTBALL/BASEBALL style cleats are permitted.

Player Evaluations (Tryouts)
All 2018 Spring Competitive Travel players are required to attend one of the age-division appropriate evaluation sessions as listed below at the MYSC Wyatt Road Soccer Complex.  It is recommended that in order to most accurately assess the player's abilities and skill level to a large number of players in his/her age group, players attend the Primary tryout session rather than the Make-up session that has fewer participants.

Players are required to be registered no later than 12:00 noon on their designated player evaluation date or they will not be permitted to participate in their designated evaluation session.
