All Third and Fourth Grade teams play a full year (Fall and Spring). Roster maximum is set at 14 unless the coach/es determine differently. Playing time will decrease as more children are added to the roster.
There are 7 players on the field per team, including a goalkeeper. The game length is 2 halves at 25 minutes. Paid referees are used for both grades; coaches are volunteers and do not get paid. A size 4 ball is used for both Third and Fourth Grade. Goal size is 6'x18'.
Both Third and Fourth Grade teams play in the Alliance League, which means they play other Magic, Middleton United, Regent, Shorewood and Capitol East teams. Home Magic fields are on the west side of Madison; away games may be in Middleton, near-west side fields in Madison or more toward the East side. Games are played on Saturday mornings or early afternoons; Sunday afternoon games may also occur.
All spectators should sit on the side opposite of both team benches. Please do not sit or stand behind the goals, as this distracts the players. Remember to let the coaches do the coaching!!
There is no heading of the ball allowed! No slide tackling either.
NEW this year: the build-out line. U.S. Soccer implemented the build-out line as a way for players to learn to build an attack from the back field. Please read a brief summary of how it will be implemented:
