Questions?

Mid-Season Transfers or Additions

Fees will be pro-rated based on the month that the player joins, then divided by 10 after the initial fee.

For the U7/8 PSA Futures teams, there will be a $400 initial fee for joining at any time.

High School Teams U15 and up fees will be assessed on the first of each month from October until March after the initial $300 fee for joining. Some teams will choose to sit out for the Fall Season. Other teams that have players that are not participating in high school sports may choose to participate in league play. Many high school team coaches do not support players playing club soccer during the high school season. Coaches and Technical staff will work with the players to determine the best opportunities for players based on this information. All high school team players are scheduled to practice with their age groups one time per week, typically on a weekend day, to provide for contact and team building throughout the Fall season. Teams may choose to participate in a Fall Tournament but many do not start regular and consistent team training until after the high school season has ended.

High School Aged Teams

Our High School-aged teams typically sit out during the fall season but will practice once per week until after the High School season is completed (usually on a Sunday). High School aged players typically train with their High School teams 6 days a week and many coaches do not encourage club participation during the High School season. High School aged teams’ game and tournament competition is a “delayed start” and heavily weighed for late Fall, Winter, and Spring participation to accommodate High School soccer. Potomac Soccer may choose to form a High School age group team for league play for those players that are not participating in their High School season if there are enough players committed for a supplemental roster for practices and games. Questions about this should be directed to Brian.Wall@potomacsoccer.org, Phase/ECNL Director.

Potomac Memorial Tournament

Each year, Potomac Soccer Association holds one of the largest boy’s college showcase tournaments in the country during Memorial Day weekend. This tournament is our main fundraising event. Approximately 445 teams from all over the United States and Canada participate. PSA relies heavily on its families to help run the tournament which encompasses several sites around Montgomery County and the Maryland SoccerPlex. Volunteers from each team are expected and required to participate every year as a part of their commitment to a Potomac Soccer team.  Volunteer responsibilities include field marshaling, team registration, equipment, and field set up to name a few. Each PSA boys team participates in this high-level tournament free of charge. A tournament volunteer is required to participate in all meetings leading up to the event, the first of which is usually in January of the year. Each team is required to sell at least two ads for the tournament book for additional fundraising which also starts in January or February. All Potomac families should “Save the date” to ensure their availability to volunteer that weekend! The Potomac Memorial Tournament starts the Friday of Memorial Day weekend and concludes Monday, Memorial Day.
