FALL 2016/SPRING 2017


Registration is OPEN for Fall 2016/Spring 2017 Season

Registration for MC United's fall 2016-spring 2017 season is NOW OPEN. Please note that the time window for completing registration for next season is very tight this year. This is to ensure that orders for new uniforms can be placed in time for fall tournaments. Please register by JUNE 19, 2016, as teams can fill quickly. Those who miss the deadline can request to be placed on a waiting list; however that does not guarantee team placement for the fall season. 
 
In the interest of player safety and development, players with 2010 and younger birthdays are unable to register for 2016-2017 MC United teams. We encourage our younger players to participate in the MC United Firecrackers Academy until they are at least U8 or older.

State Team Tryouts for Fall 2016/Spring 2017 Season

Tryouts for the MC United Fall 2016/Spring 2017 State Teams will be held during the first two weeks of June, per WYSA regulations. You DO NOT need to be a current MCU player to try out for the MCU State Teams. 

The Wisconsin State League provides the highest level of competition for youth soccer teams in Wisconsin. The MC United Board feels strongly that this is a great opportunity for our players and for our Club.

The following dates have been scheduled: 

  • JUNE 13 — BOYS U15 STATE TEAM — Eastbay Sports Complex, Field 3, 6:00 - 8:00 pm
    • Players with birth years: 2002/2003/2004 are eligible to try out. While players with a 2004 birth year are eligible per WYSA rules to tryout for a U15 team, the MC United Board requests that players with a 2004 birthday tryout for the U13 State Team. In the interest of player safety and development, the Club generally recommends against players playing up two years at this age.
  • JUNE 15 - BOYS U13 STATE TEAM — Eastbay Sports Complex, Field 3, 6:00 - 8:00 pm
    • Players with birth years: 2004/2005/2006 are eligible to try out.

  • Fee is $10
  • Wear shinguards
  • Bring a ball and plenty of water
  • Please arrive 10 minutes in advance, to register and pay fee
  • If your son is interested in playing goalkeeper, please inform the evaluators

Players are asked to RSVP to ensure we have enough assessors and equipment on site. Please RSVP with Sharon Belton, Boys Team Formation. If you cannot make the scheduled tryout date, please contact Sharon Belton

New WYSA Rules

Please see below for some NEW information about changes that will be impacting all Wisconsin soccer clubs effective Fall 2016. 
 
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.
