Metropolitan DC-Virginia Soccer Association Soccer: Fun, Fitness, and Friends -- for Life

Member Benefits

What are the Benefits of joining the MDCVSA?  
Many local soccer leagues have decided to join the Metropolitan D.C.-Virginia Soccer Association (MDCVSA).
The MDCVSA is a member of the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) and the United States Soccer Federation, Inc. (USSF), which is affiliated with FIFA. These administrative bodies work together towards the overall development of soccer within the United States. 
USASA is responsible for developing the sport for players over the age of 19.  A competitive and recreational oriented organization, the USASA helps develop adult amateur soccer for both men and women on a national basis. As part of that development, the USASA stages the annual National Cup Finals, which features champions from each of the four U.S. Soccer regions (Regions I, II, III and IV) squaring off in 6 different competitions.  The USASA also organizes national tournaments for Veterans and Co-Ed teams. The USASA, in association with the U.S. Soccer Federation, helps stage the annual Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, the oldest annual team tournament in the United States, which dates back to 1914, when the Brooklyn Field Club won the first national title by defeating the Brooklyn Celtics in Pawtucket, R.I.
USSF- As the governing body of soccer in all its forms in the United States, U.S. Soccer has played an integral part in charting the course for the sport in the USA for 100 years. In that time, the Federation’s mission statement has been clear and simple: to make soccer, in all its forms, a preeminent sport in the United States and to continue the development of soccer at all recreational and competitive levels. U.S. Soccer is celebrating its Centennial in 2013, and over the course of a century the sport’s exponential growth has been nothing short of remarkable.

How does the MDCVSA directly benefit it's leagues and their players?
