Registration guidance concerning participation within the player's league age group
The Des Moines Midway Soccer Club offers multiple levels of play, separated by gender (with the exception of
our Coed U-6 & U-7 age group), to meet the needs of our diverse player skill sets and to keep play safe for our participants. Our recommendation is for
players to follow the natural age progression set by Washington Youth Soccer (see Registration Overview page for the age chart). Some players
may decide that they want an extra competitive challenge from their current age group. Player requests to play above their age group must be submitted in
writing to the DMMSC board of directors and will be approved on a case-by-case basis. When giving the request, please be sure to include players name, date
of birth and requested exception to the progression, as well as information to support why you are making the request. If you are requesting a specific
coach, please be sure to include his/her name and whether you have contacted that coach about your request.
