Fall 2021

Registration for Fall soccer with MCSA is open! 

We have two programs available. One is our Grassroots Academy for children born in 2014 - 2018. 

The other is our Developmental Soccer League for kids born from 2006 - 2013.  Scholarships are available by applying here.

Grassroots Academy

For Grassroots, we offer a U6 (2016 - 2018) and U8 (2014 - 2015) division. The U6 practice 2x a week for 45 minutes each, no games. U8’s practice 2x a week for an hour and they play one game on Saturdays. This is a 6-week session.

The focus is on teaching the kids the basics of the game with a goal of them falling in love with it. No laps, no lines, just lots of movement and fun. Our professional coaching staff run these practice sessions. 

Registration for Grassroots is $80 for U6 and $105 for U8. All first-time Eagles receive an MCSA training shirt. 

This 6-week session starts the week of August 16th. We’ll offer another 6-week session later in the fall, too. 

A $10 sibling discount is also available.

Developmental Soccer League (DSL)

The second option is for 8 to 15 year-olds (Birth Years 2006 - 2013)  The Mendocino County Developmental Soccer League (DSL). The league features teams from Ukiah, the Mendo Coast, Willits, and Covelo.  Teams will play home games and travel only within the county on some Saturdays. 

Volunteer coaches receive professional support and guidance from MCSA staff as they guide their teams. The growth of the new league is a part of our developmental pathway, which allows MCSA to reach more kids in our community with high-quality soccer training.  

DSL starts its new season on August 16, 2021, and runs through November 6th. 

Registration is $95 (plus uniform, which is roughly $60). You can pay the registration fee now, and a link for the uniform package will come later. 

Additional details, including a pre-season family Zoom, will take place a few weeks before the season. 

Save 10% for early-bird registration if you sign up by July 6th. Siblings will receive a $10 discount.
