National League Showcase Series 
Beginning with the 2020-21 seasonal year, all Mid South Conference teams will have access to the new National League Showcase Series.  The National League Showcase Series provides more opportunities for Mid South Conference teams to compete within a national platform against other similarly performing teams from other Conferences. These Showcases are designed to maximize identification opportunities for Mid South Conference players and to create efficient recruiting opportunities for the scouting community.  More information about the National League Showcase Series can be found in  FAQ  document and additional information will be forthcoming on the website .

Mid South Conference Format of Play
The Mid South Conference will continue to operate as it did in 2019-20 with teams from AR, MS, LA, TN, AL, and FL (panhandle).  We will continue to look for ways to better serve and connect the state associations and clubs within the Mid South Conference.  MS - Gulf Coast Division will continue to operate in Coastal MS, LA, and the Florida panhandle.
While we are   all   wanting to get back onto the field as soon as possible, we will continue to look out for the health and safety of the players, coaches, and spectators first.  We as a National League Conference will continue to monitor both national and local impacts of the coronavirus moving forward as we plan for Fall 2020.

South Mississippi Select Soccer est. 1982

SMSC Select Soccer History: The South Mississippi Soccer Club (SMSC) is celebrating over 38 years of existence here on the Gulf Coast. SMSC was established in 1978 as a full member of the Mississippi Soccer Association (MSA) which was formed in 1974 with the United States Youth Soccer Association.  In 1982, SMSC started the original Select Soccer Program in our area.  The founding fathers of this program were volunteers.  The original SMSC select teams were named "UNITED" to signify opportunity for talented players from any area to play. Other team names were "Coke United" and "Coke Express," after the local Coca Cola bottling company generously became a sponsor of the program.  In 2012, SMSC merged with Biloxi's Real Mississippi Select program to form the largest pool of soccer players on the Gulf Coast with a membership of over 2,000 players. Become a part of the soccer heritage in the most successful and established program on our beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast!
