The Districts. For the purposes of the District Select Program only, all of the cities and and towns in the state are divided into Districts of approximately equal population. In most years, we operate with seven districts, although teams are not always formed in each eligible age groups within each district.
Each District has its own page on this website.
To access each of the District pages simply click on the appropriate District number on the menu to the left. If you do not know which District your city or town is in simply click on "District Select - Towns" on the menu to the left. Once you determine your District you can access information about tryouts, contacts and schedules by going directly to your District page.
The Cost. Massachusetts Youth Soccer is proud to present the District Select Program at an incredible value! Participation in the Program costs only $150.00 per player. This price includes the uniform (shirt, shorts and socks) and tournament gift. If a player is not registered with Massachusetts Youth Soccer for the current season he or she will need to pay an additional $11.00 as a registration fee. Scholarships are available and are based entirely on need.

Candidates must have an E-License or D-License and should have experience coaching at the age group they wish to coach in the DSP.
