All First and Second Grade teams play a full year (Fall and Spring). Roster maximum is set at 12 unless the coach/es determine differently. Playing time will decrease as more children are added to the roster.
There are four players on the field per team, with two fields of games going at once (this equals 8 players needed per team). No goalkeepers are allowed at these ages. The game length is 4 quarters at 10 minutes each for First Graders, and 4 quarters at 12 minutes each for Second Graders. No paid referees are used for either grade; coaches will assist by refereeing. A size 3 ball is used for both First and Second Grade. Goal size is 4'x6'.
Both First and Second Grade teams play other Magic SC teams; therefore, fields on the near West side of Madison will be used. Games are played on Saturday mornings or early afternoons.
All spectators should sit along the far outsides of the fields. Please do not sit in-between the fields, nor behind the goals.
Per recent rule changes by U.S. Soccer, no heading of the ball allowed! No slide tackling. Please do not allow players to guard (cherry-pick) the goal--there are no goalkeepers allowed in these age groups.
Please let the coaches do the coaching!
Uniform Ordering: Uniforms should be ordered online via League One when players register. For those who are in need of uniform replacement during the season, please use League One and select "Uniform Selection Post-Registration."
