General Information


As players get older and develop, many want to play in a more competitive environment with an increased level of coaching and development. The next level of soccer above Recreation offered by MYSA is Classic soccer which is overseen by NC Youth Soccer who sets the competitive divisions for teams and clubs participating throughout North Carolina.  Generally, the amount of travel involved is usually quite low with travel times of 15-90 minutes to 4-5 ‘away’ games per season, depending on age group and competitive level. 

  • Classic level teams are mainly coached by MYSA Staff Coaches with many years of experience coaching soccer who hold high level coaching licenses from the USYSA, USSF, and NSCAA.
  • About half of each team’s matches will be ‘home’ matches played at local fields while the other ‘away’ matches are usually within a 15-90 minute drive. NCYSA tries to minimize travel as much as possible while still providing a competitive schedule of matches.
  • All travel teams practice twice a week for 60-90 minutes with practices run by the team coaches as well as professional trainers working with MYSA. 
  • Players tryout for travel teams each Spring and play for that team for the next year. Note that Academy age players (Rising U8-U10) go through ‘assessments’ as opposed to tryouts, with most players offered spots to participate. The assessments are designed to see if a player is ready to train at a higher level. Tryouts/assessments are normally held in late May before Memorial Day.
  • Classic (U11-U18 Age Players) – Classic teams play in geographical ‘divisions’ in the NCYSA Classic League. Teams are divided into 2-3 ‘levels’ (2nd Div, 1st Div, Premier) and our Classic teams may play teams from anywhere in North Carolina, depending on the age and makeup of their division, though teams are generally grouped by geography.  MYSA teams generally play many local clubs in the Burlington, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Chapel Hill, and Raleigh areas.
  • Classic Teams from U11 - U14 Age Groups play 2 seasons, Fall and Spring.  Official training starts roughly in mid-August.
  • Classic Teams from U15 - U19 for Girls play 1 season, Fall.  Official training starts roughly in mid-August.
  • Classic Teams from U15 - U19 for Boys play 1 season, Spring.  Official training starts roughly in early February.
