New Summer Recreation League Overview
Join our NEW summer Recreation league for boys and girls high school aged players! MYS is running The Watermelon Cup, an informal summer high school league aimed at providing an exciting and enjoyable soccer experience for high school aged soccer players with birth years 2009-2005 in the DMV area.
The Watermelon Cup will meet once a week and will last for six weeks - June 21 - August 10. The league will consist of randomized teams each week, ensuring that players have the opportunity to play with and against different players each time. The games will be 9v9 with two 25 minute halves. An MYS Recreation staffer will be responsible for organizing the teams at the field (with pinnies), ensuring that the games run smoothly, and acting as a referee.
Score will be kept for each game. Each player will receive 4 points for a win, 2 for a tie, 1 point for participating, and 0 points if they do not show up. The final game night of the season the top 14 players compete and the winners will receive a prize.
