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.
