  • Field Assignment Notes:
    • U5s always report to the Burns Attack Field
    • U5s and U6s are age groups, not "teams" so not to worry if there is no "Coach" aka Parent Administrator listed on your child's team.  The Parent Administrators in the age group and the Trainers will help all teams/players
    • U7s and U8s while divided into teams are also really just age groups where we focus on individual development.  Do not worry if your child's team does not have a PA listed, MSC will make sure that the volunteer PAs in the group & Trainers help the in-house game days run smoothly.   
    • Please note that the goal is to have the kids play and get as many touches on the ball as possible and to find success going to goal.  The team is not important in the slightest at this point in their development and only exists for organizational purposes.   
  • Please note: The dates, times and locations listed are based on the schedules set at the beginning of the season. If a certain date, time, or location changes, updates will be communicated to parents via Sportssignup emails and texts. Please ensure you are signed up to receive club emails (and check Spam) and texts in your Sportssignup account at https://limassapequasc.sportssignupapp.com/Login.
