2023 Summer League

June 27 – August 10, 2023

Entering season #4, we are excited to continue the growth of our outdoor leagues with the launch of our Summer League. In season #1, three teams participated in the league (Sandy Spring Soccer Club, Aspen Hill Soccer Club, and ESYDA), fast forward to April 2023 and the league increased to 34 teams.

Our Spring and Fall seasons are based on the 140 acre campus of the Sandy Spring Friends School (SSFS) in Sandy Spring, MD, our league is located within a 10 mile radius of three counties (Prince George’s, Howard, and where we are based Montgomery) and our Summer league will take place at Montgomery County Parks and Recreation Fields. Due to our geographical advantage, we are able to attract more teams throughout the Central Maryland region than other leagues, where teams have to travel far distances for competition. We also pride ourselves on our price point and being a fraction of the cost as some of the other leagues. The MDSL was created by clubs, for clubs and we are excited to help lower budgeted clubs save.

Games will be held on the weekdays on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. The 2023 summer season will run from June 27 – August 10, 2023 for U-10 – U-18 competitive level boys and girls teams. Teams will be tiered by age groups U-10, U-12, U-14, U-16, and U-18. Teams will receive 7-8 games during the season. At the end of the season, champion and finalist medals will be issued. For registration and scheduling we use GotSport and there is a $25 discount per team for clubs who register 3 or more teams. For clubs registering 3 or more teams, use the discount code MDSL25.
