The Massachusetts Premier League exists to provide competitive play for any team interested in the highest levels of youth soccer. It offers a league structure based solely on merit. We take, as a reasonable measure of our success, our teams' successes at Regionals and tournaments throughout the United States and abroad.
Founded in 1993, today MAPLE provides a competitive structure for more than 500 teams from 95 clubs throughout the state. These clubs range from large, "full service" clubs to those consisting of one or two teams, from the highly selective to the developmental. All games are Sundays, with U10 playing in the morning and U11-U18 in the afternoon. Our fall season is nine weeks long, starting the Sunday after Labor Day, and is open to U10-U14 teams. The Spring season is seven weeks, ending with the State Cups in June, and provides play for U10-U18 age groups.
Any team, however composed or organized, can try its hand at MAPLE play. There are no residency, club or organizational affiliation, experience or other prerequisites of any kind. After you enter, everything is based entirely on merit. You rise through the program based solely on your team's performance on the field.
