The mission of the Maryland Developmental Soccer League is:
- to build a locally-based league centered around the I-495, I-270, and I-95 corridors in an effort to reduce travel time for youth players to and from games. Our league targets teams in Anne Arundel, Frederick, Howard, Montgomery, and Prince George’s Counties. All games are held in a central location at the Sandy Spring Friends School in Sandy Spring, MD.
- to focus on technical player development and sportsmanship as well as to create an overall positive competitive environment that allows for appropriate levels of competition for all players. Development over winning is our objective and at no time should winning precede development;
- to create a fun and positive experience for players, families, coaches, and officials to generate a life-long love for the game of soccer/futsal. The sport is also used as an avenue to teach kids life-lessons;
- to afford mobility of players within club teams to have competitive and developmental balance.
The MDSL is travel/competitive soccer with “more soccer…and alot less travel.”
