*Note that no scores are kept at our Scrimmagefests.

The Doradus Scrimmagefest managed by the MDSL invites you to participate in our 2024 Spring post-season Scrimmagefest at Grove Point Park in Springfield, VA on Saturday, June 15th (U-8 – U-12 teams) and Sunday, June 16th (U-13 – U-16 teams)! The Doradus Scrimmagefest provides an environment for players to just ball without the pressure of winning. Games are 40 minutes (20 minute halves) and teams are guaranteed 3 games. We hope that you will consider including this great opportunity for your club to play vs. different teams throughout the DC, MD, VA region.

For those of you unfamiliar with soccer Scrimmagefests, they are a single or two event filled with soccer for your team(s). You will play 3-4 opponents in a shortened match format and there will be no scores or standings kept. This format removes the pressure and (perceived) need to win. Our mantra is development over winning, and although we must offer tournaments for competitive purposes, our Scrimmagefests are what really stays true to our mantra.

This format in turn provides coaches the opportunity to be flexible in their team approach to use different formations, combinations and substitution patterns that they may not feel comfortable with in games that they have to win to move up a division or to win a tournament. With our Scrimmagefests held after tryout season, the timing of it also allows teams with new players to see how they do with their new teammates.

Team Check-in and Waiver

To simplify the Team Check-in and Waiver process, we have provided a PDF file for Team Managers to complete and to add to their GotSport account when uploading required documents for the tournament.



Tournament Rules

As for player check-in, we keep this process fairly simple as well. Teams are required to submit player birth certificates, rosters, and medical release forms. State sanctioned player cards are not required. There is also no limit on the number of guest players that are allowed but we require teams to stay within the maximum roster size. We also ask that you arrive to your games at least 15 minutes prior so that we know that your team is ready and prepared.
