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.
Founded in 1993, today MAPLE provides a competitive structure for more than 750 teams from 100 clubs throughout New England. 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 8 v 8 games in the morning and 11 v 11 games 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 May, and provides play for U9-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.
