SPRING 2020 Season
MSA Spring Season Update
 

Today we have made the difficult decision to postpone our Spring season to the Fall.

The health and well-being of all is our highest priority. The medical risk and our ability to protect our players, and their families is too great. While news changes daily and all our lives continue to be significantly impacted by the spread of COVID-19, we feel it is in the best interest of all our families to postpone the spring season to the fall.

We will be moving the spring season to the fall season, but we will be expanding the fall season by 2 weeks and starting earlier.

 

All players that have registered for the spring season will be automatically transferred to the Fall Season.

 

If your player is not able to play in the fall season, please send an email to michianasoccer@gmail.com by May 15,2020. Please include the Players name and the option you are selecting from below:

1. Donate all or a portion of your paid registration to Michiana Soccer Association to help offset the financial impact and support our continued mission to provide opportunities for all youth of Michiana to play organized soccer. This donation will go toward our new field development, parking and scholarships for players in need of financial assistance.  You will receive a letter of receipt recognizing your tax-deductible gift.

2. Request a full refund of the Players Registration fee that you have paid to date. 

We do ask for your patience as it may take up to 30 business days to process the financial transactions.

If you registered a company sponsored player: the sponsorship will be transferred to the Fall season.

The Fall Season will be as Follows:

 

Registration- Now until June 15,2020

Team Formation - June 16- June 29

Releasing Team Rosters to Coaches- July 12

Why MSA?

Let's take a look...

Our Recreational program provides a fun soccer experience for players of all ages. Kids as young as age 4 all the way to age 15 will have a blast playing soccer in our Recreational program.

Our Academy program provides the next phase in development for those who like soccer and are ready for more of a challenge. The Academy program begins at U7 and continues at U8, U10, and U12.

Our partnership with the Jr Irish Soccer Club completes the developmental pathway for players who really like soccer and want to continue having fun in a more challenging environment while getting trained by professionally licensed coaches.

Do you need help deciding which program best fits your child? For that or other questions you may have please email our Director of Coaching...
