Important Information

Also, please note the following:

  • Winter Academy is INCLUDED for Full Year DDP and U9 Players
    The fees for the Winter and Spring Academies were included in the registration fee for full-year U7/U8 DDP players and all U9 travel players. All players will need to register. If you have a question as to whether you registered for the half or full DDP year, please contact your DDP coordinator.
  • Facility Waiver is REQUIRED (link)
    The All Sports Center requires that participants complete a type-written waiver. Please complete the PDF form on your computer, print it, and sign it. Handwritten releases will not be accepted by the All Sports Center. Any player without a release will be allowed to participate. This is a facility rule, not a Methacton United rule.
  • Snow Days?! Really?!
    We have reserved a limited number of extra sessions to account for possible winter weather cancellations. If a canceled session can not be rescheduled, there will be no refunds.
