The Regent Soccer Club, Inc. is a non-profit youth soccer organization based in the near west side of Madison. We offer both neighborhood (6U-14U) and Select (11U-19U) 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 Kinde (6U/7U) 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).
Full-season recreational fees are $129.55 for 7U-8U; $139.95 for 9U-10U; and $150.35 for 11U-14U Gold. The full-season Blue Program registration fee is $207.55. Registration fees cover insurance, administration, field maintenance and MAYSA fees. Uniforms are not included in the registration fee; additionally, coach/tournament/referee fees for the Blue Program are separate from registration fees.
All players should have a blue and a white Regent jersey, 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 players may wear any athletic shorts and soccer socks. You can find uniform ordering information HERE Players are also responsible to bring their own soccer ball to every Regent SC event.

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.
Consistent with our mission of encouraging participation by all interested players, Regent offers scholarships to all qualified families through our Robin Carre Scholarship Fund.
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; Blue Program players receiving a full scholarship will have the registration fee, team fees and uniform covered. The parent must complete 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 (included in the application) explaining financial circumstances and how much they are able to contribute. Our scholarship committee will review your situation (anonymously) and get back to you in a timely fashion.
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).
The Alliance is a cooperative effort between Regent 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.
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.
Most Regent players live within the West High attendance area. However, we welcome players from all areas around Madison.
Guidelines are established by US Youth Soccer and are based on the players birth year. The following are the age groups for 2020/21:
