Fall Travel Teams 10U-13U

The Registration "Fall Travel Teams 10U-13U" is not currently available.

Fall 2020 Travel Teams

MYSA will have a Fall Travel Season! CMYSA Fall Travel Teams are available for boys and girls born between 2012 and 2008. CMYSA will have the following 7 black level teams for the fall travel season:
      Girls = 10U, 11/12U, 13U
      Boys = 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U

Registration Deadline: THURSDAY, August 13, 2020
Fee: $100  (Plus a Sports Engine 3.0% + $1.00 per online transaction processing fee. This fee is non-refundable.)

Games will be modified to ensure safety of players, coaches, referees and spectators. By registering your player, families agree to follow the social distancing and mask mandates. There will be travel to other communities to play teams outside the St Cloud Area.  

MYSA created a Return to Competition Protocols that all clubs must adhere to starting this fall. CMYSA's version is available at the top of this page. 

The fall season typically consists of 6 games (3 home and 3 away) between August 29 and October 4.  All games are on Saturday or Sunday.  Teams will typically begin practice in mid-August and practice 1 or 2 times per week (dates/times TBD by coach).

Fall Finals and Fall Festival are October 10 and 11 in Rochester, if your team elects to participate. Registration price does not include the cost of 2020 Fall Finals and Fall Festival. This fee would be paid by your team ($350-$475 split among all players on a team).

The fall season has no connection to the summer 2020 or 2021 seasons. Meaning your child's team placement for summer is separate from fall. Fall is a short season that's a great introduction to the travel league and often mixes players on different teams and sometimes age groups.  There are NO tryouts for the fall season. Simply register and your player will be placed on a team, if space is available, in the order he/she registered.  Register ASAP to guarantee a roster spot. 

CMYSA does not offer financial assistance for Fall League and all fees paid are nonrefundable. IF the season is cancelled by MYSA or CMYSA, players will receive a prorated refund.

We are using our current Adidas uniform. CMYSA will lend new players travel jerseys. Players need to have navy socks and navy shorts.

Affinity removes photos in even years, so all players need to upload a head shot photo. New players must upload proof of age.

Please contact me with any questions.

School or Club?

The Minnesota State High School League allows players to participate in both club soccer and middle school soccer. If a player is pulled up to play for a freshman team, JV2, JV1 or varsity team, the player can no longer participate in club soccer. 

From a club perspective, we discourage players from participating in both club and junior high soccer if the junior high team trains 5 days per week. CMYSA does not want our players to get burnt out or injured from overuse which is more likely to happen with large soccer loads.

Some middle schools only have practice 3 or 4 times per week. This schedule makes club fall a more realistic option, but still can be a lot on a player.

We do not push fall club over fall middle school. Our goal is to provide a playing opportunity for those who need/want it. A player does not need to participate in fall club if he/she is already playing for school. 

 

Here are a few pros and cons to consider:

Middle School

Pros: Practice every day right after school meaning less transportation needs and evenings and weekends free for homework and other activities. Meeting new kids that they will be teammates with throughout high school and getting good social connections as they start a new school. Transport to games is provided by the school and games are more local than travel. 

Cons: Sometimes rosters are large and coaching experience is a 50-50 on whether the school got srong applications; large continuum of player experience

CMYSA Fall

Pros: Commitment is 2 to 3 times per week and usually in the evening after work, the competition is higher as kids all have soccer experience, coaches have all worked with the teams before and have experience coaching soccer

Cons: Less practices and therefore less touches on the ball, travel outside of the St. Cloud area
