Winter Indoor League

The MYS winter indoor league is a program that is accessible to all registered recreation players on equal basis, regardless of which recreation team they are assigned to during the fall season or spring seasons.

Based locally, this program simply allows U7 - U11 players to enjoy the game in a safe, comfortable environment over the winter.

In keeping with the concept of "just let the players play", this indoor league is not intended to provide training; it is purely an opportunity for recreation players to play over the winter.

This program is open ONLY to players who were rostered to a Fall 2017 MYS Recreation Team.

TEAM REGISTRATION - if a team wants to join the league, these are the steps: ONLY MYS recreation teams that are participating in the Fall 2017 season may register as TEAMS for the MYS winter indoor league

  • Step 1: The MYS U7 - U11 volunteer coach completes the TEAM REGISTRATION FORM - no later than October 30, 2017. Space is limited, so team registration is strictly first-come, first-serve. Provided sufficient space is available for your whole TEAM, registering as a TEAM will secure a place in line for all of the players on your TEAM (to a max of 7 players - see below), and will confirm that you will be a volunteer coach in the indoor program. If insufficient space is available for your whole TEAM, then you will not be able to register as a TEAM and players must each register as INDIVIDUALS.
  • Step 2: Then, each player on the team must directly register as an INDIVIDUAL no later than October 30, 2017 by completing the steps below. Players will be placed on the team in the order in which they register to a maximum of 7 players.

Rules and Procedures:

  • If your TEAM registers, and you do not register as an INDIVIDUAL by October 30, 2017, you will lose your place in line and an INDIVIDUAL registrant will be assigned to your TEAM in the order that INDIVIDUAL registrations are received. You would need to register as an INDIVIDUAL and join the end of the line after this date.
  • If a TEAM has more than 7 players registered, with the exception of the coaches child, ONLY the first 7 players from that TEAM to register as INDIVIDUALS will be assigned to that TEAM's roster, the remainder will be assigned to other rosters. This is to maintain the co-ed nature of the competition.
  • If a coach has a child playing on their TEAM and does not register their own child by October 17 and is then unable to register them due to the program being full and is unwilling to coach, then each player registered to that TEAM will become an INDIVIDUAL registrant who may be assigned to any TEAM.
  • If a TEAM does not have sufficient numbers of registered players by October 18, INDIVIDUAL registrants will be added to TEAM rosters by MYS in the order that they were received, so that all TEAMS have 10 players assigned to them.
  • INDIVIDUALS will only be placed into age groups that are separated by no more than one year (i.e. a U09 player will not be placed on a team with U11 players). This is a co-ed league, so boys and girls will be mixed.
  • Coaches MAY NOT request players from other teams and players MAY NOT request coaches or friends. Given the limited number of available spaces, MYS will assign players with current team mates where possible, but will make all decisions on roster assignments. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS.
