MPB offers youth players a more competitive soccer experience than that of Parks & Recreation soccer program. Our teams are members of the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) and play league MYSA games against competitive (travel) teams from other soccer clubs. MYSA has six geographic districts. MPB teams generally play in the North District, but may be placed in another district based on MYSA’s recommendations. Depending on which district a team is placed (i.e., North or West), a team can play teams from the north and west suburbs and outlying areas (i.e., Blaine, Champlin, Brooklyn Park, Edina, Eden Prairie, Minneapolis, St. Cloud or Duluth).
MPB follows MYSA’s guidelines regarding age and level of play. A player may play up an age group (older age group); however, a player may not play down an age group (younger age group). For instance, if a player’s date of birth places him/her as a 10 year old. This player may play at U10 (10 year old) or up U11 (11 year old) level but can not play at U9 (9 year old) level. The competitive age levels begin at age nine or U9 level; however, an eight year old may play up at the U9 level. Eight years old and younger players may not register on a U11 or older team. The competitive age level ends at age 19.
