Congratulations, Saba's U13 Girls soccer team for winning the championship of the 2016 Plum Kick-Off Classic tournament! The final was postponed from August 28th to last week.
Good luck this season!

Make a difference in young soccer players' lives! Volunteer for TOPSoccer and help special needs children and teenagers have fun learning to play the game!
The spring season of TOPSoccer begins on September 18th and continues on Sundays through October 30th. The games take place on Jefferson Oval from 4:30-5:30 each week.
If you can plan on attending at least four of these sessions, please contact email@example.com to sign up. The time you spend being a "soccer buddy" counts for community service hours, too.
If you registered previously on MLSA.org (for a survey last year or if you ordered equipment this year or something else), your child should already have an account and hopefully that account was linked to their team this year. If you just registered yourself previously on MLSA.org, then a new account was created for your child. This is just to keep in cleaner for the teams (instead of showing a parent on the team, we want to see the players)!
Also, you DID register on Affinity to register your child to play. Don't worry about that. Unfortunately, that system is separate from ours, so we want you to register here, too.
Coaches use these accounts to set up their team on our site. Having your child listed as a player (and not listed as your name on their roster) makes it convenient for the coach. Also, you can set up different information rules for parents vs players; for instance, I currently have 2 daughters playing soccer and I am a coach. I have my own account for coaching and each of my daughters has an account. Plus I have my wife and my daughters' grandparents attached to my daughters' accounts. They get the emails for my daughters, but not the ones for me (that they definitely don't care about).
You can set up multiple ways for an account to be contacted, via Linked Accounts. For instance, as I mentioned above, my account goes to me, my daughters' accounts go to me and my wife and their grandparents. Set this up by going clicking on your name in the top left hand corner of the screen. Choose Household and in the screen that displays, click on your player. In the LINKED ACCOUNTS section under the player's profile, you can add or remove contact addresses. Any email going to this player will go to the emails listed in this section. Unfortunately, in order for the linked account to get access to the team's mobile app, etc, you'll need to tell the coach to add them to the permissions of the team, but that is certainly not a problem!
We are always looking for volunteers. If you are willing to coach, assist coach, or help out with our tournament concession stands, let us know. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
