Registration

Fall 2017 Registration Is Now Closed

Registration is now closed. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list, please contact Sharon Belton (Boys Team Formation) or Dave Draeger (girls team formation).

MCU is offering a variety of registration options for both Classic teams and State teams, so be certain to review all of the information below.

Classic Teams

Please note: The full-year registration option that was available in prior seasons for Classic teams is no longer available.  Players who wish to play both Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 will register for Fall 2017 now, and will register for the Spring 2018 season in a separate session open in December/January. Offering separate registration sessions allows the Club to be more consistent with registration options used in other areas of the state and gives more flexibility to team formation.

  • Oregon – September 15-17
  • MCU Fall Cup – September 22-24
  • Coulee Region/LaCrosse – October 20-22

U12 Boys and U14 Boys (full year Fall 2017-Spring 2018)

  • U12 and U14 Boys players will register for the full seasonal year during the Fall 2017 registration session and players will retain their spots for the full year.

  • $340 + $30 (Soccer Complex Fee).  $370 total.

Multi-player Discount policy:

  • The Club will waive the registration fee for the 3rd or greater concurrent player(s) from the same family, subject to the following conditions:
  • The discount covers only the registration and Soccer Complex fee, not uniform or other expenses.
  • The registration fee is based on CWSL participation fees, not state league registration fees.
  • The discount is applied to the lowest registration cost of the player in the same family (see #4).  For example, if 3 players have registration fees of $230, $205 and $190, the total registration fee to be waived would be $190.

Uniforms

Uniforms are purchased separately and are not included in the registration fees. Upon the close of registration, new players will be contacted mid-summer by our uniform vendor with information about how to order a new uniform. Current players are not required to purchase a new uniform, but will have the opportunity to do so if new sizes or kit components are needed.  Any players rostered on a MCU U15+ team where the team does not play a full 2017-2018 season have the option to rent rather than buy a uniform. For the fall season, this will apply to the High School Girls Classic team and the U17 Girls State League team.  A $20 rental fee will be applied a checkout for those who choose the rental option.

Scholarship fees

A player may receive a 50% or 100% waiver of their registration and Soccer Complex fees if they are a participant in the current school year's reduced (50%) or free (100%) lunch program.  The same percent discount applies to State League fees.

Additional Information

In the interest of player safety and development, the Fall 2017 season will be open to U9 players and older. U9 players are those with dates of birth in 2009.  U8s (dates of birth in 2010) and other younger players are encouraged  to participate in the fall MC United Firecrackers Academy.  The Spring 2018 season will be open to U8 players.

Fall Tournaments

  • Oregon – September 15-17
  • MCU Fall Cup – September 22-24
  • Coulee Region/LaCrosse – October 20-22

If You Miss the Registration Deadline

Players who missed the registration deadline can be placed on a waiting list by contacting Dave Draeger (Girls team formation) or Sharon Belton (Boys team formation).  Dave and Sharon will do their best to find a spot, however, please be aware that being placed on the waiting list does NOT guarantee player placement on a team.

MCU Scholarships Are Available

MCU Scholarships are available to those families who receive a free or reduced lunch through their school district. To obtain an MCU Scholarship, simply provide a copy of the free/reduced lunch letter and indicate the name and age of your child and for what season the scholarship would apply.

For those families who receive free school lunches, the MCU Scholarship includes the entire MCU registration fee. For those families who receive reduced lunches at the schools, the MCU Scholarship includes half the MCU registration fee. MCU uniforms, equipment and travel expenses are not included in the MCU scholarship program. Scholarships can apply for each child in a family.

All MC United players are expected to show a high level of sportsmanship and commitment to their team-mates and coaches with regular, on-time attendance at practices, games, and tournaments.

The availability of scholarships is reviewed annually based on the Club’s available resources and the numbers of players in need of assistance.  Consideration of a player’s past level of commitment is considered when granting each season’s scholarship award. 

If you are interested in obtaining an MCU Scholarship, mail the aforementioned information to:

New WYSA Rules

Please see below for some NEW information about changes that will be impacting all Wisconsin soccer clubs effective Fall 2016 and going forward. 
 
1. Change to birth year registration 
 
Here is a simple explanation for soccer ages that will be used by all Wisconsin soccer clubs for the fall 2016/spring 2017 soccer season. 
 
2009 = U8
2008 = U9
2007 = U10
2006 = U11
2005 = U12
2004 = U13
2003 = U14
2002 = U15
2001 = U16
 
2. Increase in the number of players on the field during U9, U10, U11, and U12 games
 
U9 = 7 v 7 (from 6 v 6)
U10 = 7 v 7 (from 6 v 6)
U11 = 9 v 9 (from 8 v 8)
U12 = 9 v 9 (from 8 v 8)
U13 and up = no changes; remains at 11 v 11
 
3. Increase in the number of players allowed on U9, U10, U11, and U12 rosters
 
U9 = 14 (up from 11)
U10 = 14 (up from 11)
U11 = 16 (up from 14)
U12 = 16 (up from 14)
U13 and up = no changes; game day rosters of 18
 
During team formation, MC United will make every attempt to keep rosters sizes at a reasonable number in order to maximize playing time
 
4. Offsides rules may be in effect at U9 and U10 depending on referee availability at games and at the discretion of individual competitions
 
5. No changes in the size of ball used at each level.
 
U9 to U12 use size 4 ball
U13 and up use a size 5 ball
 
6. Penalty for forfeited games.
 
Please be aware that parent/player commitment is critical to the success of MCU teams and the Club. Teams that forfeit games due to lack of player availability are subject to a $150 fine per game. Parents whose players are not available for the forfeited games will be responsible for this cost.
