Who is eligible to try-out for a team?

MLU tryouts are open to all area youth. The minimum age requirement is birth year 2013. The age requirement is determined by the league to which teams are registered.  If your player does not currently play for an MLU travel team we require a copy of your players birth certificate, or passport to be uploaded at the time of registration, or presented at tryout check in. We must verify all player birth years before your player can be placed on a team.

How far do we "TRAVEL?"

The majority of  teams play in the South Jersey Soccer League ( for boys) and South Jersey Girls Soccer League  (for girls) and play 10 games in the fall and 10 games in the spring.  5 of the games are home and 5 away.  Generally, the away games are an average of 30 minutes travel time, however they can be up to an hour. We also have teams that participate in other leagues National League and Elite Development Program (EDP)

High School Age Tryouts

High school team formation falls into two categories,fall and spring league play and spring only league play. Some players are on a high school  team and do not participate in league play. Some do not participate in high school  team play and may be interested in league play for the fall. Generally, the players whom play for their high school team in the fall participate in spring league play. Please speak with your team coach concerning a fall team. Team formation will be dependent on the who is interested for which teams. Tryout dates to be determined.

2020 Fall / 2021 Spring Travel Age Group Definitions

When determining the age group for the seasonal year, the year the season ends should be used for determining the birth year. Also note that the format “U followed by age” really means that age and younger. For example, U8 should be read as 8 and younger. For the purposes of calculation, it is the second year of a split-year competitive season which determines what number should be used to calculate age group. Example: 2021 – U8 = 2013 birth year.
