MSI RecreationEach season thousands of athletes play on an MSI recreation team! Our signature Recreation league is the foundation of MSI. There are no tryouts, and we welcome players of all skill levels to have fun and enjoy the game. Teams focus on development over competition and each player is guaranteed playing time equivalent to at least half a game. Unlike other clubs in the area, youth players can choose to play on MSI's Recreation teams at any grade – from first grade classmates learning a new skill to multi-sport, high school athletes balancing a demanding schedule. Our Recreation programs are led by dedicated volunteers. Players can participate in fall and spring MSI recreation sessions.
Spring registration is open!Let us know what school your child attends or lives near.
🚩 IMPORTANT NOTE: Some Spring 2021 teams still have space, but many are full. Please read all of the information below, before registering. We value your time and effort. If you register for a team that does not have space, or for the incorrect team, it will take time to process a refund.

Transfer Player Requests
If you would like to request a transfer to a different MSI Recreational team, please select “No” to the question “Would you like to return to your Fall 2020 team?” The next item on the registration form will be “New and transfer players, what is your team placement request?". You should type in the name of the coach for the team you would like, or any other information that would be helpful.
Requests for Financial Aid
Due to the MSI office being closed during the Covid lockdown period, players wishing to apply for financial aid must send an email to [email protected]. In that email, provide your name, the names of the players you wish to register, and a telephone number at which you may be reached during the day. Players wishing to apply for financial aid must email a current copy of the player’s Montgomery County Public Schools Free and Reduced Meals (FARMS) program voucher at the time of registration. (A form must be submitted every season)
Online Payment is by Credit Card or Check
If you wish to pay by check, you must send your check to the MSI office ("Attention: Rec Reg"), and it must arrive within 7 days of your registration. The MSI office address is: 7650 Standish Place, #108, Rockville, MD 20855.
Coach and Volunteer Registration
Coaches and team volunteers must re-register each season.
The baseline intent is for the Spring 2021 season to be run according to the historic format, with league games on weekends. There is the possibility that local health regulations may require a modified approach and a modified format, and MSI will comply with those regulations and develop a weekend format that is consistent with them. This modified format will include regular game-play, if that is what is allowed, or will include modified activities with a competitive element, as appropriate.
Withdrawal and Refund PolicySee our Frequently Asked Questions about Recreation
We all hope and believe that we will be able to have vibrant MSI programs this spring, but in recognition of the possibility that we will not be able to, MSI will continue its "Families First" policy of providing families the choice of refunds or credits. In order to facilitate that process, in the event it becomes necessary, we will be asking you to please indicate your preference during the online registration process. If you have questions or would like to request a refund of your spring season registration fee (deadline is March 1, 2021), please email [email protected].
The roster view for parents and players will be available at the end of the first week of August (for the Fall season) and at the end of the first week of March (for the Spring season). Schedules of games usually are posted 2 weeks prior to Opening Day each season.
