Fall 2020 Rec League Registration

Fall 2020 Rec League Registration is NOW OPEN. Deadline to register to guarantee a spot on a team is July 31, 2020.  

**All late fees have been waived**


REGISTER HERE

Due to the pandemic, registration for Rec this Fall will be different. We will not be collecting any money right now when you register. Rather you will register to indicate that you will want to play if and when we get the greenlight to proceed with our season.

Once we get clearance to play, we will accept your registration and you must login and pay for the league before you will be placed on a team. 

Registration Fees & Deadlines

  • U4 & U5: $110 - no deadline
  • U9-19: $175 - no deadline 

Fall 2020 Rec League Schedule

With the concern surrounding the resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic this winter, MYS has decided to start the season 3 weeks earlier than normal.

The Fall 2020 Rec season will begin on August 17 (first practice) with first games on August 22. U4-11 teams will play on Columbus Day weekend this year.

Fall 2020 schedule for U4-11:

  • August 17 - First practice for U6-11 teams
  • August 22 - First U4 & 5 classes
  • August 22 - First games for U6-11 teams
  • August 29 - Week 2
  • September 5 - No games due to Labor Day weekend
  • September 12 - Week 3
  • September 19 - Week 4
  • September 26 - Week 5
  • October 3 - Week 6; Last day for U4s
  • October 10 - Week 7; Last day for U5s

The SFL clubs voted to start the season later, on Sept 19. Even though SFL games don't start until then, SFL teams can start practicing on August 17 well. The SFL season will only be a 7 game season plus a tournament weekend.

The U7 teams will continue to practice together on either Tuesday or Thursday, with sessions led by MYS' professional coaches. Exact times and locations will be released closer to the start of the season.

The above schedule is subject to change, along with program offerings based on the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Recreation Program Information

The McLean Youth Soccer (MYS) Recreation program, under the guidance of Recreation Director Haytham Mansur, focuses on individual player development and the enjoyment of the game of soccer - not on winning games. We believe it is important for our players, parents and coaches to embrace this philosophy as it is an important foundation of MYS.

The Recreation program includes the following programs:

  • U04: Game-based program for our youngest players
  • U05: Academy style, non-team-based introduction to soccer for our pre-K players.
  • U06-U07: Academy style, non-results, team-based developmental program.
  • U08-U11: Team-oriented program promoting fun and player development.
  • U12-U19: Team-based program that competes against area club teams in the local area.

MYS Recreation program does not permit carded travel players to participate at the recreation level.

How to Register on Sports Connect

We've got a new look! Over the past few months we have been working to convert over to SportsConnect. 

In early April you should have received an email asking you to activate your new SportsConnect account - if you setup your account when you received that email, then just click the big regsiter button below, login and register.

If you didn't get that email it's ok, again just click the big register button below, then click forgot password, reset your password (an email will be sent to you from SportsConnect to reset your password), login and register.

The registration will charge you $0 now, and is set-up as a tryout-style registration. Please know there will be no tryouts, and that is just how we had to set it up in the system. You will be charged after your child is added to a team, and you will receive an automated email to accept the team placement and pay.
