Welcome to the new website for the Menomonie Area Soccer!
Menomonie Area Soccer is a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization that was founded in the 1990’s with the goal to expose young people to the game of soccer and to develop individual and team skills through practice, instruction, and games.
Registration for Fall 2020 is now open! See the update below in the news section from Menomonie Area Soccer President Jamison Patrick.
Dear Club Members:
Below, is the first version of the Menomonie Area Soccer safety protocol for the fall season for our entire club. This document will be under daily revision going forward, as we continue to receive updated information, to ensure our young athletes, staff, and families, are safe during these incredibly unique times. And, so, hopefully, we will get a chance, again, to play the "Beautiful Game."
That said, if you have questions, comments, or concerns about our shared protocol, please keep them positive. The purpose of the protocol is to follow the guidelines of our governing bodies--U.S. Soccer and Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association--and our local health department. The purpose of the protocol is to keep all our club members safe, not putting anyone at all in jeopardy of getting sick. We are one club, we are one team. Let us all work together to care and take care of one another.
Please do not hesitate to respectfully engage me.
Dear Club Families:
I want to address what player safety currently looks like, today, in the State of Wisconsin, regarding soccer; what it will likely look like when we get to the Week of August 3rd (The start of the fall season – Practices); and, what we hope it will look like by Saturday, August 29th (The first competitive matches for most teams).
In short, Wisconsin soccer is in what is called Phase II. The Phase II plan is a combination of Phase I’s and Phase II’s guidelines for player safety set by U.S. Soccer to “Play On,” or, “Return to Play,” as called by the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association. This means low numbers, socially-distanced practices can take place with masked coaches, BUT there can be no scrimmages, games, competitions, or tournaments. We will likely still be in Phase II by the start of the season – Week of August 3rd.
By the time we get to Saturday, August 29th, the hope is we will be in Phase III. THIS will allow us to scrimmage and play in games/competitions/tournaments.
At present, both Competitive and Recreational options are open to register. Competitive registration closes on Sunday, July 19th at 6 p.m. EXCEPT for the 19U Girls team, which closes on Sunday the 26th. Recreational registration closes on Sunday, August 15th. If you need assistance registering, please contact our registrar at email@example.com
For Competitive players, you will receive an email from me about uniforms for fall toward the end of the week. We will then jointly work through the uniform process during the Week of July 20th in an attempt to keep uniform costs down, knowing the club is moving on to new club kits in Spring 2021.
I plan to follow up will all club members, again, by Sunday, July 26th, to give a player safety “Update!” on the status of fall play. However, in the meantime, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
