Mass Youth Soccer District Select Summer Program Tryouts
Mass Youth Soccer sponsors a summer soccer program called the District Select Program. Cities and towns throughout the Commonwealth are combined into districts of roughly equal population. In most years, we operate with seven districts, although teams are not always formed in eligible age groups within each district.
The District Select Program is an outstanding opportunity for players to continue their development during the summer in a fun and competitive soccer environment.
Every year each District holds tryouts to determine the players to participate in their respective groupings. The Program utilizes single year age groups for boys and girls, Under 12 through Under 17, and for the Under 19 age group. Each district is responsible for scheduling their tryouts independently. Try-outs are held during the first two-three weeks in May. The 2012 season, tryouts start Friday, April 27th.
The season runs approximately four weeks -- it starts on the first weekend following the 4th of July and ends with a tournament the first or second weekend of August. All teams are eligible to participate in the tournament.
The Director of the Mass Youth Soccer District Select Program is Nancy Hart. Nancy is also the Director of Mass Youth Soccer Recreational Programs. She can be contacted at (781) 812-1832 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Starting in 2012, the District Select Program shall calculate its age groups based upon an August to July calendar as do most of the Leagues in Massachusetts. In the past, age groups were based on calendar years. In 2012 age groups will mirror how most players are categorized during their town and club seasons.
