In order to offer central Wisconsin youth the best opportunity to learn the skills and tactics of soccer, MC United Soccer Club offers a variety of levels of play.
- Recreational – MC United Firecrackers Youth Academy – K thru 2nd Grade. The Academy is a coed developmental soccer program, held in the spring and fall, designed for children in Kindergarten through second grade. The Academy focuses on the development of each player’s technical skills while ensuring they enjoy the game of soccer. All skill levels are welcome. Teams are formed randomly and each player will receive equal soccer skills training and playing time. The Academy strives to build confidence, skills and sportsmanship.
- U9 - U19* Competitive Classic Teams. No tryouts are necessary to join these teams. Our Classic teams are appropriate for a player looking for level of play that is generally higher than a typical recreational soccer program. Many players join MC United after participating in a recreational soccer program such as MC United Firecrackers, WAYSA, Everest Youth Soccer, or through the YMCA, although prior recreational play is NOT required. With these age groups we will continue to focus on the development of every player’s tactical and technical skills while nurturing their love for the game. Coed and all-girl teams participate in Central Wisconsin Soccer League (CWSL) games against other soccer clubs from North Central Wisconsin. Teams also participate in three weekend soccer tournaments. Classic players typically have 3 practices per week (2 during the league season) and coaches and teammates count on having players committed to attending practices.
*High school players: MC United welcomes all players. However, it is recommended that players joining MC United for the first time as a high school player (freshman U15s through senior U19s) have some prior experience playing in a recreational soccer league (for example, WAYSA, Everest Youth Soccer) or have participated for a season in their school district’s middle or high school soccer program. Parents of players interested in joining MC United for the first time as a high school-age player should contact Lance Kelly, MC United’s Director of Coaching, prior to registration. This will help ensure that parents and players that are new to MC United have information about general skill, agility, and fitness expectations prior to committing to participation.
- State League Teams. The State League is highly competitive and composed of the most competitive soccer clubs in Wisconsin. A team must win their CWSL division in order to apply for State League play. MC United does offer its teams the opportunity to train for and compete in the State League. Each individual team and each individual player will determine if they want to participate at this highly competitive level, which requires an advanced level of training and skill. Teams will play against other State League teams and compete in weekend tournaments during both the Fall and Spring seasons. Tryouts are typically held in June for these teams for the following Fall/Spring seasons.
