Registration

FALL 2020 CLASSIC REGISTRATION IS CLOSED

We are excited to be planning for the Fall 2020 MC United soccer season. As has been the case since March, we are hopeful about seeing the kids back playing soccer this fall. But we also recognize that circumstances can change rapidly. We appreciate your patience, flexibility and understanding. 

Be sure you are prepared to do your part as parents/guardians to understand, respect, and follow the PLAY ON guidelines, parent and player responsibilities, and club policies related to safety. Help us and your child's coach by reinforcing these guidelines with your player continually throughout the season. 

It is each individual family’s discretion if they wish to register for the Fall 2020 season. We respect each family’s decision.

Fall 2020 Registration

Returning to Play under PLAY ON Guidelines

U.S. Soccer’s PLAY ON is the return to play protocol, which will guide the phased re-entry of soccer activities for MC United and all other Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) clubs. Our ability to have a safe fall season will require the cooperation of parents, players, coaches, and the club – with each of us consistently doing our part to adhere to the guidelines. Please become familiar with the PLAY ON protocol and the Parent and Player Checklists so that you have a general idea of the COVID-19 mitigation and safety measures that will be expected of you and your child (there are also expectations of the club and coaches at the link below).  MC United has a planning committee working on defining our procedures to ensure that we comply with the protocols. Specifics will be shared with parents and players prior to resuming training. You can find these resources here.

What Might Fall Soccer "Look" Like? 

WE ARE PLANNING FOR TRAINING GAMES/POSSIBLE LEAGUE THIS FALL – TOURNAMENTS ARE UNCERTAIN AT THIS TIME AND COULD BE ADDED TO REGISTRATION FEES IN AUGUST

What we are able to do this fall will depend on what Phase we are in under the PLAY ON guidelines. At this time, it is uncertain whether fall tournaments will take place. Given this uncertainty, and assuming we are in Phase 3 this fall, we are planning on:

  • Fall Classic season consisting of regular weekly training sessions (practices) and games (either formal, refereed scrimmages with other clubs, play weekends/round-robins, or a fall Classic league; these may be small-sided games such as 3 v 3 or 5 v 5).
  • Fall State league season consisting of regular weekly training sessions (practices) and games for state league teams (either formal, refereed scrimmages with other clubs or a fall State league).
  • Information about fall tournaments will be communicated by mid-August. The Play On guidelines strongly discourage overnight travel/hotel stays. If we do participate in tournaments, the weekends will likely be:
    • September 19-20 – MCU Fall Cup
    • September 26-27 – Oktoberfest (De Pere) or Winde Linde (near Madison) – still TBD whether we will attend either of these tournaments. 
    • October 3-4 – PCYS Nutmeg Classic – Stevens Point
  • Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot predict with certainty what the Fall 2020 soccer season will look like, how plans may need to change during the course of the season, or if teams or players may need to pause their activity or quarantine for several weeks in the unfortunate situation of a possible COVID-19 exposure. There is a certain level of unpredictability that parents and players should be comfortable with when making the decision to register for fall. In all cases, we will make decisions in the best interests of families, players, coaches, and the club and will communicate often. 

Parents will register now and pay a BASIC FEE to cover the costs of trainings and scrimmages/games/league. Included in the fees are the coach’s stipend, field/facility fees, insurance/WYSA fee, referee fees for games/scrimmages/league, and other small administrative expenses.  If we participate in tournaments, parents will pay a tournament ADD ON fee later in August to reflect the difference in the additional cost of tournaments.  

Communicable Disease Waiver (new)

In addition to the traditional Medical Waiver, parents will also be asked to sign a WYSA Communicable Disease Waiver during registration. This is required by WYSA for our insurance coverage. If your child has an underlying medical condition that makes them at a higher-risk for COVID-19 [for example, chronic lung disease (including asthma); heart disease; or conditions that weaken the immune system] please discuss their participation with your primary care provider prior to registration. 

Registration Tips

1. Have your photo(s) ready - have your player's photo ready before you start the registration process. We are unable to complete registration and get your team's player cards without a photo for every player on the team. You may update your child's photo from a prior season if you wish. We recommend photos be updated every three years. 

2. Register on a PC/laptop rather than by smartphone due to website scaling issues. 

3. Returning Parents: please use your existing Demopshere/Teamnet login credentials to register.  Please do not set up a new account for each child, each season, as this creates duplicate records and additional, unnecessary administrative tasks for our registrar.

However, we recommend that players joining MC United for the first time as a high school player (freshman U15s through U18) have some prior experience playing in another competitive soccer club; WAYSA, Everest Youth Soccer, or another indoor or outdoor recreational soccer program; or have participated for a season in their school district’s middle or high school soccer program. Parents of high school players interested in joining MC United that have not had any prior soccer experience should contact Lance Kelly, MC United’s Director of Coaching, prior to registration. This will help ensure that parents and players that are brand new to soccer have information about general skill, agility, and fitness expectations prior to committing to participation.

State Teams (tryouts required)

State team players who have already registered under early offers will be provided payment instructions in August 2020 based on the status of tournaments. All MC United state league team players will register in August, including spring 2021 teams. 

If You Missed the Registration Deadline

Players who missed the July 31 registration deadline can be placed on a waiting list by contacting Dave Draeger (Girls team formation) or Mark Schommer (Boys team formation).  Dave and Mark 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.

2020-2021 Refund Policy

Find the club's refund policy here: 

https://www.mcunitedsoccer.org/page/show/2617990-refund-policy

WYSA Player Transfer Policy

Per Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) policy, a player is considered committed to a club for the soccer seasonal year (8/1 - 7/31) when a written acceptance occurs and a parent/guardian completes the player registration form and submits it to a club representative. If at any time during the registration seasonal year, a competitive player desires to transfer to another club's team (interclub transfer), a parent/guardian must submit WYSA’s competitive player transfer form.  In practical terms, this means that any player who registers for MC United for the spring/fall 2020-2021 season who then wants to change to another club at any time before July 31, 2021, including before the spring 2021 season, will be considered a transfer and is subject to WYSA competitive player transfer policies. This also applies to those who choose the “Fall” registration option. More information about WYSA’s policy can be found here:

https://www.sportsforms.club/wysa-competitive-player-transfer-request.html

If your situation meets these criteria, please contact Mark Schommer (MCU Boys’ Team Formation) or Dave Draeger (MCU Girls’ Team Formation).

Payment Plan Dates

Fall: 1/2 at online registration, 1/2 on August 1

Additional Information

The Fall 2020 season will be open to U9 and players. U8 players can join in Spring 2021. 


MCU Volunteer Hours

MC United is successful because all members help support the Club. Each MCU family is required to volunteer two hours per season. When families register their player(s), they will be asked to select a volunteer option. 

The MCU volunteer commitment per season is two hours per player, per family up to 4 hours total.

  • 1 player/family = 2 hours/season
  • 2 players/family = 4 hours/season
  • 3+ players/family = 4 hours/season

Anyone in the family can contribute to the two hours. Age restrictions are as follows:

  • Concession stand volunteers must be age 14+
  • Field marshals must be age 16+

Volunteer opportunities will be available via SignUp Genius and are tracked. Most families volunteer at the MCU tournaments. If you are an MCU coach, team manager, board member or committee member, your time in this capacity serves as your required family volunteer time.
