Minnesota Womens Soccer League

Regarding Winter Session I & II (2020-2021)

As the MWSL board of directors continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic as a league, we wanted to update you on our plans to return to play.   

Indoor soccer in Minnesota comes with the increased expense of turf field rental. Simply put, financially committing to a winter season only to not have it be a success runs the risk of long-term financial detriment to the MWSL. We want this league to be around for years to come; long after the pandemic. For this reason, the MWSL will not hold a 2020 or 2021 Winter Session (both session I and II)

We know that this is unwelcomed news for many, and we appreciate your understanding. Please know that you are always welcome to attend an MWSL Board meeting to contribute to the conversation or just listen in. The MWSL will keep in touch about future seasons, and we hope to be back on the field just as soon as we can! We are working on a return to play policy, for when that time comes.

Please email info@mwsl.org with questions.

Stay safe and healthy,

Your MWSL Board of Directors

 
Volunteer with the MWSL!

The MWSL is seeking individuals to help expand and enhance the capabilities of the MWSL. Be a voice for your league, your division, and your team in a casual environment surrounded by like-minded members. Do you have interest or skills in the following areas? 

- Website Administration

- Field Identification and Relations

- Player Recruitment and Public Relations

If you do, we'd love to hear from you. Players from all divisions and all ages are encouraged to inquire. You can email us at info@mwsl.org, attend an upcoming board meeting, attend the AGM March 14th, or talk to one of our current board members during indoor soccer. 

 
Looking for a Team? Looking for Players?

The best way to find teams looking for players or players looking for teams is to visit our Facebook group page. Check it out here! Currently, a "Find a Team" option is not available on our website, and you no longer register and then have a team pick you up. Team managers must send you an invite to join their team.

Team Managers can be reached via email if you visit the "Contact" page where you can see a list of current teams.

You can also reach out to info@mwsl.org as a team manager or a player and we'll do our best to get you in touch with others.

 
MWSL Does NOT Cancel Games Due to Weather

The MWSL Board does not/will not cancel games due to inclement weather.

Games will only be cancelled under the following circumstances:
1.  Field manager closes the field
2.  Referees, at the field, deem field conditions are unplayable or unsafe

Should the MWSL be alerted of a field closure, we will:
1.  Email team managers of affected teams
2.  Post on Facebook/Twitter
3.  Cancel the game on the MWSL website, which also triggers a notification of affected players

Teams failing to have 7 players within 15 minutes of the game start time will forfeit and will owe 100% of the referee fees (pulled from the team's performance bond)

** Reminder - the MWSL Board is composed of 100% volunteers. Our volunteers have full-time jobs, families, other responsibilities, and often their own soccer games. We will do our best to alert team reps in a timely manner, however there may be delays in communication due to other priorities.

We are always looking for more people to join the MWSL Board and its committees to help in all aspects of our league. Please email info@mwsl.org for more information and descriptions of our current needs.
