Playing Up

  • MPSA recommends that all kindergartners remain at the Pre-K Clinic level, however, due to the US Soccer 2015 Player Development Initiatives (updated in October 2017), MPSA will allow players to "play up" in the 1st - 2nd grade program (Division 6) based on roster space, so that players can train and compete with peers in their calendar birth year. Parents/guardians should understand that by choosing to have your kindergartner play at this level, your child will be playing with and against children up to 2.5 years older (with potential for a significant size difference).

Grades 5 and Above

  • For players in grades 5 and above, please see programs offered by, Morris United Soccer Club.
  • MPSA’s Youth Referee Program (grades 6-12) offers older players the opportunity to develop knowledge of the game, build leadership skills, and earn wages (or service hours).
