2023 Spring Season Information

Join Mudsock Youth Soccer for our 2023 spring soccer season. We offer a full recreational soccer program for players 4 years old through high school who reside in the Hamilton Southeastern School District. All recreational soccer participants will be registered through the Mudsock Youth Athletics Office.

Registration Fees
Open Spring registration will be held the month of January 2023. Registration will be accepted online at www.myathletics.com. Spring fees (early bird pricing) will be as follows:

$85 for grades Pre- K through 2nd (includes uniform costs)
$110  for grades 3rd-6thth (includes uniform costs)
$115 for grades 7-8th  and high school (does NOT include uniform cost)

There will be a multi-player discount available for families registering three or more children. Early bird pricing will be available during the month of January. Beginning February 1st, registration fees will increase.

7th and 8th Grade Rec Plus Division
We will be continuing our 7th and 8th grade rec plus option with separate boys and girls divisions. Teams will play other local teams outside of Mudsock Youth Soccer within the NCRSL program in addition to our own teams. Teams will have 2 practices per week. Players’ information will be shared with Indiana Soccer in order to register teams. Teams will play a minimum of 8 season games, perhaps more depending on scheduling. A season ending tournament will be held in Lawrence, Indiana.

Co-Ed High School (9th/10th Grade and 11th /12th Grade) Divisions
We will be continuing our high school option with divisions for 9th/10th grade and 11th/12th grade. Teams will play other local teams outside of Mudsock Youth Soccer within the NCRSL program in addition to our own teams. Teams will also have 2 practices per week. Players’ information will be shared with Indiana Soccer in order to register teams. Teams will play a minimum of 8 season games, perhaps more depending on scheduling. A season ending tournament will be held in Lawrence, Indiana.

NEW format for Spring 2023 Registration: Working with our league partners in the NCRSL, we are hoping to offer an ALL-Female option for our high school season. 
When you register for the high school division, you will be given the option to select an all-female or co-ed team. If you select the all-female option and we don't end up having enough females register for a full team, parents/guardians will be given the option of switching to the co-ed division or receiving a full refund. We are hopeful that this new format can help grow our league by giving our female players a choice!

Special Requests
Teams are formed by Mudsock Youth Soccer commissioners. In order to be fair and make sure teams are balanced, requests will not be guaranteed and cannot be accommodated after teams are formed. Requests may include sibling information, physical/social/emotional needs, sizing information, etc. Requests will not be accepted after registration has closed. Specific day requests for practices will not be an option. One exception, a head coach may choose one assistant coach and one player to be included on their team. If your child participates in more than one activity or sport, Mudsock Youth Soccer cannot guarantee the absence of scheduling conflicts as each league operates independently.

Families will be informed via Sports Connect of assigned practice day after registration has closed and teams are formed. Assigned field locations are made by the league based on several factors. It is not possible to honor a specific practice location request.

Season Highlights
The season will run for 8 weeks. Younger age teams will practice one weeknight and have a practice or a game each Saturday with one Sunday game scheduled during the season. Older age groups may have practices twice during the week and potentially a third practice or game(s) on the weekends. Every attempt will be made to reschedule any canceled games due to weather or field conditions for the following Sunday afternoon (8 days post).

Spring 2023

All coaches are required to submit a background check, complete online concussion training, and attend a pre- season coach's meeting (TBD). Please also list on the online registration form if you are interested in being a league sponsor, volunteering on the soccer board or as a commissioner. Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches receive a complimentary coach shirt, team equipment, access to practice plans and league support.
