Cost for a full season (includes both fall and spring) is $105. This includes 8 games in fall and 8 games in spring. All new players will need to purchase a uniform and size 3 ball. Uniforms can be purchased during registration; a full uniform costs approximately $50 and includes a green and white jersey, one pair of black shorts and one pair of black socks. Players may wear the uniform pieces as long as it fits, or tryout and make a Select team at the 11U age.
All 7U&8U 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 U7 teams, and 4 quarters at 12 minutes each for U8 teams. No paid referees are used for either grade; coaches will assist by refereeing. A size 3 ball is used for both 7U & 8U. Goal size is 4'x6'.
Both 7U&8U teams play other Magic SC teams; therefore, fields on the near West side of Madison will be used. Magic creates the schedules, no outside person or organization. Games are played on Saturday mornings or early afternoons, with a possibility of a Sunday afternoon game, too.
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!
