Playing Opportunities Responses

Question: 
Do you have winter or indoor leagues?
Response: No, MYSA does not currently run or sanction winter or indoor leagues.
 
Question: 
I am new to town/considering moving clubs. How do I identify clubs for my child to play in?
Response: The MYSA Affiliate Club Directory (Quick Links > Clubs)  will allow you to identify clubs that service your community (e.g. Eden Prairie, Woodbury). You may contact the club of your choice directly. Be sure to give the age and gender of your child and some understanding of the competitive level, time commitment, etc. that you are looking for. You may also visit prospective clubs' web site for more information.
 
Question: 
My team would like to participate in (Kohl's American Cup, U9/U10 Jamboree, etc.) but we have a conflict. What can we do?
Response: In most cases, we will try to accommodate teams as much as possible. Just include this information on your registration form (e.g. afternoon games only or unavailable after 1:00 pm).
 
Question: 
What are the competitive classifications?
Response: MYSA provides multiple levels of competitive play, with Premier being the most competitive division followed by Classic 1, Classic 2 and Classic 3 in decreasing order of competitiveness.
 
Question: 
What is ODP?
Response: The Minnesota US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP) is a program that offers supplemental training and a competitive opportunity to the best identifiable talent in certain birth years. ODP is not an alternative to club play. All ODP players play for an MYSA club. Teams, or pools, of players are selected within their particular birth years to train together under specially selected age group coaches. Then the strongest identifiable talent for each birth year is invited to attend a US Youth Soccer ODP Regional camp in July to represent Minnesota.
