Minnesota Black & Blue Leagues

Overview

Minnesota Black and Blue Leagues are intended for 9U-19U multi-sport or seasonal-committed athletes.  

Black is the higher level league compared to the Blue League. Each season clubs choose which league to enter their teams as there is no promotion/relegation or roster continuity rules in either league.

STRUCTURE
Teams will be placed in brackets within their chosen Black or Blue league based on their geographic location. Teams will get a schedule and have the ability to reschedule any games.

REGIONS
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.

TEAM CONTACT INFORMATION
Each team is responsible for providing accurate contact information to MYSA. Only listed team contacts and club officials may communicate with MYSA regarding team, league, and game issues.
