2018-2019 MDSA Select Program

MDSA's Select Program offers enthusiastic and motivated players from our 10U-14U Fall Program the opportunity to improve their skills in a more competitive but still recreational environment.

Players are chosen, teams formed and announced in November.  Training sessions typically start the first week of December. The Select program game schedule runs from January through May/June, and all teams will choose play in a number of tournaments that end typically in May depending on the team's chosen schedule.


All eligible players (10U and up) are encouraged to apply. Please note that to be eligible for the Select program a player must be enrolled in the current Fall primary program and must have participated in at least 70% of their fall team games. You may only participate in Select in the same division that you participated in during the Fall program.

The number of teams that will be formed in each division varies from year to year.  As a rule, there is typically 1 Select team for every 8 Fall program teams in each division.  Select teams will travel more than fall teams, as the region could play teams from Davis, Stockton and Rio Vista, as well as Winters, Rio Linda and Antelope (and possibly others - this may vary from year to year).

A higher level of commitment is expected from both the players AND the parents.  Select is for enthusiastic and motivated players. For the purposes of player development, a player is expected to regularly attend training sessions and games. Parents are also expected to participate in league organization, particularly in the running of the Area 2C & 2D Select Tournament (end of March) and Concord Cup (mid May) which Mt. Diablo Soccer is a Host.


Applications for the upcoming Select Season for interested players and coaches is now open. Players can register for upcoming tryouts through your Mt Diablo Soccer account (Available Programs under Registered Participant). Coaches should submit a Select Coach Application here.


The 2018-2019 Select player registration fees is $190. The fee offsets the cost of uniform kits (two jerseys, shorts, socks and a personalized warm up jacket), field rental fees (including training session under lights) and other incidental expenses. Players are expected to participate in several tournaments with the actual number based on the coach's preference and scheduling requirements. You can expect to participate in anywhere from 4-7 tournaments. The tournament registration costs will vary, but can run anywhere from $45-$60 per player per tournament. You should plan on an additional $300-$450 per player in tournament fees in addition to the player registration fee - these fees are collected separately from the registration fee. Additionally you will need to account for other incidental travelling costs such as gas, food, and lodging depending on the location of the tournament. Note: There are no scholarships offered for the Select season as this is an optional offering.

Select Travel & Tournaments

Typically Select teams play in 3 to 6 tournaments.  The tournaments are usually chosen in consultation with the families of the players.  All tournament-related costs are separate and distinct from the Select program registration fee and are therefore the responsibility of each individual team.  The Regional Commissioner must approve all tournament team rosters.

The Select Tournament is already covered by your Select fees. In addition, the following tournaments have traditionally been attended by MDSA teams:

  • Pleasant Hill Soccerfest – Late March/Early April
  • Comstock Shootout (Carson City, NV) – Mid to Late April
  • Pacifica Fog Classic – Early May
  • Concord Cup – Mid May
  • Davis World Cup – Memorial Day Weekend
