Minnesota Black and Blue Leagues are powered by Mayo Clinic and pay homage to our MLS team Minnesota United FC. These leagues are intended for 9U-19U multisport or seasonal-committed athletes.
Black is the higher level league compared to the Blue League. Each season clubs or teams choose which league to enter their teams as there is no promotion/relegation or roster continuity rules in either league.
Teams will be placed in leagues based on their geographic location then within their leagues. Teams will get a schedule and have the ability to reschedule any games.
Black and Blue teams are "traveling soccer" teams that are expected to travel for games. Leagues will be organized by regions to help keep travel time to a reasonable amount. The regions consist of Central, South, Arrowhead, Prairie, Metro, Wisconsin District 9 and Independent regions.
Registration is now open for the spring 2020 season, and the registration deadline for both leagues is March 9, 2020.
9U & 10U spring 2020 season: $185/team
11U-19U spring 2020 season: $325/team
TEAM PLACEMENT GUIDELINES
MYSA recommends the following guidelines when determining to enter teams in either Black or Blue League:
*Exceptions can be made but clubs/teams consult MYSA first
Fall season consists of six games to be played between Labor Day and mid-October, and summer season consists of 8-12 games to be played from April 27–July 3.
*If 9U Blue and 10U Blue are combined, the playing night will default to the 10U Blue playing nights
SUMMER STATE JAMBOREE AND CHAMPIONSHIPS
All Black and Blue teams can compete in Summer State Championships at the end of the year. 9U and 10U teams will compete in a round-robin Jamboree with the goal that teams will play other teams they didn't see in league play. 11U-19U teams will be seeded based on league results and compete for a championship.
