Additional League Fees
- Some teams will choose to participate in high level leagues, or additional leagues, not covered in the Player Dues. These leagues may include the Great Lakes Alliance League (GLA) and the SPIRE Premier Indoor League.
- The Club Directors and Coaches will determine the appropriate leagues for each team based on their age, level of play, and travel commitment.
- Any additional league fees will be collected by MSA Soccer and invoices will be added to the GotSoccer online billing system.
Additional Competition Fees
- The Club Directors and Coaches will determine an appropriate competition schedule for each team based on their age, level of play, and travel commitment. Competitions mainly include additional tournaments and play dates.
- Most teams will participate in 2-4 additional competitions.
- Some teams will only participate in the included tournaments, and thus not incur any additional dues.
- Any additional competition fees will be handled through individual team accounts separate from the GotSoccer online billing system.
Players are assigned teams based on age, level, and team availability.
Premier Teams (Gold) | U9-U19
MSA Premier is the highest level of training and competition within MSA club soccer. Our Premier players and coaches will demonstrate the highest level of commitment to excellence in skills, fitness, work ethic, attitude and sportsmanship. Premier players and coaches will demonstrate a commitment to the club, their team and their own soccer development.
Players and teams compete against premier teams from leagues and clubs throughout the region and nation, and based on age and level, teams will compete in 4-6 tournaments annually, that carry additional fees.
Challenge Teams (Blue) | U9-U19
MSA Challenge is the first stage of “travel” club soccer. Travel is not as extensive and time consuming as “Premier” soccer, as it is typically limited and shorter distances. The goal of MSA Challenge is to provide an environment in which the level of competition, commitment, and player development falls between that of the recreation and premier levels. All Challenge coaches are paid, experienced club soccer coaches and have a responsibility to develop the soccer skills and team play of their players.
With two training sessions per week, Challenge players will rapidly increase their skills and abilities. Challenge teams participate in the PA West Soccer Association leagues. Based on age and level, teams typically compete in 1-3 tournaments annually.
This program is geared towards the players that have played recreational soccer for a while, and want to “jump to the next level”, in order to prepare for grade school, middle school or high school soccer. It also prepares players that are ready to commit to the Premier level and need to refine their skills.
