Mustang Soccer League Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Division 1 and Division 3?
Division 1 is the highest level of competition available for youth soccer players. It involves the most traveling and the highest cost to play. Division 1 is for the most talented players and the ones who are the most committed to the game of soccer, for Division 1 is just about year round. D1 is available between the ages of U8-U20 and is the premier development program for elite youth soccer players. D1 is broken down into subdivisions, further enabling players of differening skills to be placed in the proper level of competition. Division 1 teams are coached and trained by paid professional coaches.
Division 3 is the second highest level of competition in youth soccer. It does not travel as much as Division 1, but does travel to various tournaments and league play. D3 is for youth players who are looking for a higher competitive challenge than Recreational soccer, but not the commitment of D1 play. D3 teams are coached by volunteer coaches, and have one of their weekly trainings with a paid trainer.

What does the “U” in the age groups means? What age group is my child in?
The “U” in the age groups means under. So when a child is in U10, that means she is under the age of 10, essentially 9 for most of the year. There are exceptions for children born in August, September, October, November or December. To find the correct age group for your child, please consult the 2013 Age Group Table available on the Mustang Soccer League website and also below.

What is the policy for players who live outside of Danville?
The Out of Area policy varies depending on age and level of play. Please consult the Out of Area Policy below for your child’s age group and Division.

When is open registration?
Open registration for Mustang Soccer League begins February 1st and runs until June 30th. After June 30th, there is Late Registration, which has a late fee associated with it, and we may not be able to place you on a team. Please note that all Division 1 and Division 3 players must register within two (2) weeks of being placed on a team.
Can my child be placed on the same team as their friends?
Children in the competitive (D1 and D3) levels are placed on teams based upon skill, not location or association with other players. In the recreational (D4) level children are placed onto teams via their school zone and code. The amount of volunteer coaches effects the placement of children for their teams, we try to place games and practices as close to home as possible but a lack of coaches doesn’t always allow us to do such.

How do I volunteer to be a coach/assistant coach?
Coaching your child is an excellent opportunity for real quality time that you will never regret. It is also a chance to give back to your community in a tangible way. When you register your child during open registration, you must also register yourself as a coach or assistant coach. Having enough volunteer coaches ensures that the practices and games will be closer to your school and home zone. Mustang is committed to offering free coaches clinics for new coaches in addition to a lending library of videos and books to help you coach.

Do you have a lost and found?
Check with your coach and team manager first for all items left at practices and games. If your coach and team manager did not pick up the item in question, come down to the Mustang Soccer Complex off Camino Tassajara and check the box in front of the MSC Lower field. Items in box are donated to Danville Rotary Club once a month. Items left at fields other than MSC, please contact the Town of Danville.
What is Gold, Silver and Bronze? What is Red, White and White Plus?
Gold and Silver are historical names for the two main levels of play within the D1 competitive level. Bronze has traditionally been the name for the D3 level, as is the archaic “Red” designation that is no longer used. The Division 4 (recreational) teams are also known as the White division. The White Plus level of play is also recreational, with additional training and playing opportunities.
