Need more context? Feel free to look at http://www.mwsl.org/home.php?layout=8924897 We do not let players choose their level of play based on the night of the week... if you want to play at a higher level than you're able to due to the night of the week, our club is not a fit for you and it's a burden we'll gladly pass along to a competing team to us as it causes a very poor playing experience for teammates. We do allow some players to play down a level to elevate teams and some players to play up a level to further their development on a request and evaluation basis.
Do you use or have access to Facebook? *
We ask this because some teams like to have a group chat. And we post in our women's soccer group about some random needs/tidbits that don't warrant an email to all players. It's okay if you do not have Facebook or if you're not a power user of it.

We need help weekly with ensuring a few tasks are complete such as we have enough players, the roster is printed off, finding guest players as needed, paying officials at half time, helping lead players with positioning and strategy. If you're willing to be help in any of these capacities please note it below.
What is the most you're willing to pay to play knowing these details: *
How the MWSL works is that we pay costs across several avenues, we pay refs at halftime, we pay field costs for our home games direct to venue, we pay a league fee in advance, we pay fines for forfeits and any cards, we pay for uniforms. All said, this team costs between $3,800-$5,000, so we are presently estimating the cost to be $195/player for the season. The Gray Ducks do not make a profit from your participation, you pay an equal player portion.
Game locations will vary across the metro, but always by rule of the league be within 30 miles of the State Fair Grounds. Are you able to commit to attending matches are varying locations? *
We have to secure our own home fields, do you have any connection to a city or school to which you could help us rent a field?
Fields must be regulation size, with lines, and preferably a quality field.
Your answer
MWSL Weather Policy, games are not cancelled in advance due to weather. Please acknowledge the expectation is that you must show up to the match site, and should the conditions not be playable the ref will call the game. *
Fields must be regulation size, with lines, and preferably a quality field.
MWSL Jewelry Policy, no visible jewelry is permitted at all, including visible "permanent" piercings. Is this an issue for you? *
MWSL Forfeit Policy, if a team forfeits a match they are subject to paying 100% of the officials fees, the venue fee, and any other violation costs set by the club or league. Do you understand the seriousness of attendance, and are able to commit to communicating attendance and being at majority of games regardless of a winning or losing season? *
Club card on file policy *
Due to the above, we will need to have a card on file and a release signed prior to playing for our MWSL teams to which you will acknowledge the costs of the team will be equally barred by each player on the respective roster, and that any individual fines will be paid directly by the individual causing the fine. Any unpaid debt will be issued to a debt collector, or attempted to be collected through the small claims court of Hennepin County. We ask, only serious and accountable players join our teams as volunteers provide their time for these teams and are not expected to provide their personal income. Our card on file system is managed by Square, which is a highly secure and trusted site. No one beyond Square will have access to your card details, these are not displayed on our end, we can only charge your card based on the signed form of intent and notifying you of the issue.
Any questions, comments, concerns for us to follow up with you about? Have any friends you want to be paired with or us to reach out to?
