FAQ's

What is Regent Soc­cer Club?

The Regent Soc­cer Club, Inc. is a non-profit youth soc­cer orga­ni­za­tion based in the near west side of Madi­son. We offer both neighborhood (U6-U14) and Select (U11-U19) teams. Our goal is to allow play­ers to develop a love for the game by promoting an inclusive, fun, afford­able,  player-centered environment.  Except for kinder­garten (U6) which is spring-only and High School (fall-only for HS girls, spring-only for HS boys), our teams play in the fall and spring. Our neighborhood teams play in our Gold Program and teams tend to be school– or neighborhood-based so play­ers can play with their friends. We are affil­i­ated with the Madi­son Area Youth Soc­cer Asso­ci­a­tion (MAYSA), the Wis­con­sin Youth Soc­cer Asso­ci­a­tion (WYSA), and U.S. Youth Soc­cer (USYS).

What are the Club fees and what do they cover?

Full-season recre­ational fees are $117 for U7-U8; $127 for U9-U10; and $137 for U11-U14 Gold. The full-season Blue Pro­gram (for­mally known as Clas­sic Pro­gram) fee is $187.  Reg­is­tra­tion fees cover insur­ance, admin­is­tra­tion,  field main­te­nance and MAYSA fees. Uni­forms are not included in the registration fee. You can find ordering information HERE

What do I need to play?

All play­ers should have a blue Regent jer­sey and a white Regent T-shirt, shorts, socks, shin guards and ath­letic shoes or cleats. All play­ers must wear shin guards and shin guards must be com­pletely cov­ered by player’s socks. Blue Pro­gram (tryout/selected) play­ers are to wear the uni­form shorts and socks, while Gold Program play­er's may wear any ath­letic shorts and soc­cer socks.

What can’t I wear dur­ing a game?

A player shall not wear any­thing that is dan­ger­ous to another player. The goal­keeper must wear col­ors that dis­tin­guish them from the other play­ers and the ref­eree. Absolutely no jew­elry (includ­ing but not lim­ited to ear­rings, watches, bracelets, friend­ship bracelets, neck­laces, etc.) may be worn by a player dur­ing a match. The excep­tion to this rule is med­ical iden­ti­fi­ca­tion bracelets or neck­laces. In these instances, the arti­cle should be taped to the inside of the jer­sey (neck­lace) or cov­ered with tape or a wrist­band (bracelet). Play­ers shall be asked to remove watches, rings, ear­rings (includ­ing the stud or post vari­ety), hard bar­rettes and any other items the ref­eree deems improper.   Splints and or any kind of casts are NOT allowed, unless approved by the MAYSA Referee Assignor. If approval is given a hard copy form will be provided for the player/team to present to officials at the match. Players/teams should not assume that wrapping a cast or applying padding will necessarily result in approval to play. The safety of all players on the field must be taken into consideration.

Are schol­ar­ships available?

Con­sis­tent with our mis­sion of encour­ag­ing par­tic­i­pa­tion by all inter­ested play­ers, Regent offers schol­ar­ships to all qual­i­fied families.  

What is cov­ered by a schol­ar­ship and what doc­u­men­ta­tion do I need to secure a scholarship?

If child is eli­gi­ble for free or reduced hot lunch, they are eli­gi­ble for a schol­ar­ship. For Gold Program play­ers, that means the club cov­ers  the reg­is­tra­tion fee and uni­forms. The par­ent must com­plete and return the Schol­ar­ship Appli­ca­tion. If a player is not eli­gi­ble for free or reduced hot lunch, in addition to the Scholarship Application, we ask the fam­ily to write a brief note explain­ing finan­cial cir­cum­stances and how much they are able to con­tribute. Our schol­ar­ship com­mit­tee will review your situation and get back to you in a timely fashion.

HOW ARE REGENT SC AND MAYSA AFFILIATED?

MAYSA is the gov­ern­ing body for local soc­cer clubs. There are more than 30 clubs within MAYSA.  MAYSA is a mem­ber of the Wis­con­sin Youth Soc­cer Asso­ci­a­tion (WYSA) which is part of the United States Youth Soc­cer Asso­ci­a­tion (USYSA).

What is the Alliance?

The Alliance is a coop­er­a­tive effort between Regent SC, Magic SC, Shore­wood SC, Mid­dle­ton United SC and our pre­mier part­ner, the Madi­son 56ers.  Together we pro­vide the best pos­si­ble soc­cer envi­ron­ment for all play­ers and sup­port players and teams rang­ing from local and neighborhood to the regional pre­mier level. This joint effort allows indi­vid­ual play­ers to par­tic­i­pate on a team that is most appro­pri­ate to their level of devel­op­ment, inter­est and commitment.  In some cases we will form multi-club/com­bined teams with our community club partners in efforts to keep our players on the pitch.

When does the soc­cer sea­son start?

Our sea­son fol­lows the MAYSA cal­en­dar. We have 8 games in the fall begin­ning after Labor Day and 8 games in the spring begin­ning in April. Kinder­garten teams are formed at the end of win­ter and typically play 6 games in the spring only.   Occa­sion­ally, mid-season Gold Program teams are formed and therefore play in the spring only.

What area does Regent Soc­cer Club serve?

Most Regent play­ers live within the West High atten­dance area. How­ever, we wel­come play­ers from all areas around Madison.
