To register a team for MSI Classic for Spring 2020, please use the links below.  

Individuals who wish to coach in the Classic program should review the information on the Classic FAQ page and submit their application by the posted coach application deadline.

Unlike MSI Recreational Soccer, players do not register through the MSI Office for participation in the MSI Classic League.  After trying out for and being selected to play for a MSI Classic team, players are registered through their team's coach/manager.  Please see the Classic Player Registration page of the MSI website. Players in the U10 and U11 age groups generally need to complete the MSI Classic Skills Evaluation and be rated into the Classic Player Pool in order to be eligible to try out for a Classic team.  Each Classic team has a limited number of Wild Cards that they may use to roster a player who has not been rated into the Classic Player Pool, as well.  For additional information about registering for the Classic Skills Evaluation, please visit the Skills Evaluation Process page of the MSI website.

MSI's New Synthetic Turf Fields (with lights) Enable Vast Expansion of Games on Superior Quality Fields!

MSI has funded the construction of new synthetic turf fields at Julius West MS (4 fields, with lights), Albert Einstein HS (1 field, with lights), and Walt Whitman HS (1 field, with lights), at a cost of nearly $5 Million over the next 10 years.  These new fields will vastly expand our ability to schedule games on superior quality fields, AND to avoid rainouts at a much improved level.

All U10-U12 teams will be scheduled to play all 8 league games (100%) on superior quality fields, up from the historic level of 4 games each (the current plan is for U10 teams to play all games on synthetic turf at Gaithersburg HS Stadium; U11/U12 teams to play 6 games on bermuda turf at Soccerplex and 2 games on bermuda turf at Redland Park).  All U13-older teams will be scheduled to play 6 of their 8 league games (75%) on superior quality fields, up from the historic level of 4 games each.  If there are rainouts (thunder/lightning, or closure of fields, especially at Soccerplex) or other unusual circumstances, that may force make-ups to be scheduled on standard park/school fields, though every effort will be made to maximize the extent to which make-ups are scheduled for superior quality fields!


If your team is NEW to the Classic Program or if you are a NEW Team Manager or Coach


Please attend a New Team Training prior to the start of the Classic season.  The training takes place from 7-9pm in a conference room in the MSI Office Complex.  Please email [email protected] with your team gender, age group and name, and let us know which date you plan to attend. Trainings for the Spring 2020 season will be January 9 and February 12

If you are a NEW Classic Coach

MSI requires all Classic coaches to have at least the MSI Level 1 Coaching Certification or the NSCAA Junior Level VI Diploma (or equivalent) and offers courses every year prior to the start of each season. Coaches will have a one-season grace period to acquire their license. We are offering the Level 1 Coach training course on March 8, 8:00 am - 1:00 pm (location tbd).  To register for this course, please click here.  MSI also encourages coaches to pursue more advanced licensing as their players’ skill level progresses. 


IMPORTANT NOTES (Regarding Deadlines, Fees, and Carding of Players)


The deadlines for team registration are as indicated below. Timely registration and fee payment for teams is critical for divisional planning and game  scheduling purposes.  Please be considerate of the other teams and register and submit fee payment on time.  Registration and payment of fee after the payment deadline will be assessed a $100 late fee.  Once the registration/payment deadline has passed, there are no refunds provided.

For all teams, the team registration fees include "carding" of players for the spring season. 

For player registration for U15/above teams, league rules allow for rostering of additional players beyond the standard 18.  The team registration fees include "carding" of 18 players, and additional players rostered for the fall season in excess of 18 will be assessed a "carding fee" of $16/player.
