Maroons Soccer Club Joins Mid-Atlantic Premier League and National Premier Leagues

We are thrilled to announce that Maroons Soccer Club has been accepted into the Mid-Atlantic Premier League (MAPL) as a founding member for the 2024-25 season. The MAPL, part of US Club Soccer’s National Premier Leagues (NPL) platform, offers a competitive and structured environment for our players and strengthens our development pathway at the older age groups.

This inclusion marks a significant milestone for our club, providing our U-12 to U-15 boys teams and High School Showcase team with the chance to compete at a higher level and on a larger platform. The MAPL’s club vs. club format will foster club cohesion and create exciting rivalries, as age groups will play against the same club each weekend. Additionally, the league will organize College ID/Showcase Events, offering greater exposure to college recruiters for our High School players.

Key benefits of joining the MAPL include:

    1. Higher-Level Competition: A more competitive environment with matches against some of the best clubs in the state and region.

    2. Post-Season Opportunities: Participation in the NPL post-season tournament in Denver.

    3. Pathway to ECNL/R: Promotion opportunity into the ECNL/R league which; along with MLSNext, is the highest level league in the US garnering the most College exposure.

    4. College Recruiter Exposure: Increased visibility for our high school players providing additional benefits to our High School Showcase teams. 

We believe this move aligns with our mission to provide the best possible environment for our players’ athletic and personal development. We look forward to the opportunities ahead and the growth of our club within the NPL framework.

Go Maroons! #MSCProud
