Kindergarten (U6) Programming

Every spring, sev­eral Madi­son soc­cer clubs  and the Madi­son Area Youth Soc­cer Asso­ci­a­tion (MAYSA) team up to offer Kinde soc­cer to kids attend­ing kinder­garten in the city of Madi­son. Reg­is­tra­tion for the pro­gram begins in January.

Games are played 3v3 with no goalies. They take place at local parks on Sat­ur­day morn­ings and are against other Regent and Shore­wood Soc­cer Club teams. The sea­son kicks off in mid-April with the Regent Kinde Fes­ti­val and ends in June with the MAYSA Kinde Jam­boree at Red­dan Soc­cer Park. In addi­tion to games, teams typ­i­cally have one 45 minute prac­tice per week on a day deter­mined by the coach.
Who coaches the teams?  Vol­un­teers — typ­i­cally a par­ent. Many coaches have no expe­ri­ence, but don’t let that stop you. MAYSA has a free youth coach­ing clinic for all new vol­un­teer coaches.  It is typ­i­cally held in mid-April just before the Kinde sea­son starts.  In addi­tion, Regent Soc­cer Club has Age Group Coor­di­na­tors who can be con­tacted for ques­tions and advice.

How much does Kinde cost? The reg­is­tra­tion fee for Spring 2014 is $55. This includes a ball, shirt and gear for the team. Schol­ar­ships are avail­able. If a schol­ar­ship is requested, please com­plete and sub­mit our Schol­ar­ship Application.
