MSA understands the impact COVID-19 continues to have on our soccer families. Our focus remains in bringing our soccer community back together and providing our youth players a safe and rewarding soccer experience. As of August 26, 2021: there are no restrictions/protocols implemented by MSA for players, coaches, or families. Please follow any local protocols issued by your city or county. We do encourage social distancing whenever possible as continued precaution.
Effective September 1, 2020, MSA entered Phase IV of the Return-To-Play process. It is critical for everyone involved in MSA soccer to continue following these protocols to slow the progress of COVID-19 while enabling our players to enjoy the game they love in a safe environment. Take special note to field layouts for 20-21 season.
