Developmental Soccer

U9-U10 Developmental League (Ages 8-9 years)

Our traveling leagues are organized by the Madison Area Youth Soccer Association (MAYSA) which falls under the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association (WYSA).

Developmental travel teams are formed in early July with practices beginning mid-August and play both fall and spring seasons as one team. Depending on interest, at least one team will be formed at each age group for coed and girls. Game format is 7v7.

Staff coaches will provide all lesson plans and conduct each training session over the course of the year to teach kids and parent coaches best practices of the game. At least (1) parent coach if not (2) are needed per team.

  • Guaranteed Registration Deadline = June 30th

  • No tryout is required for developmental teams, all players interested will be placed on a developmental team as space permits. Players with like birth years will be placed together in the Under 10 age group (Includes U9), while a player may also be placed with other like-minded and like-ability players outside their birth year at the director of coaching’s approval. For Example: All U9 & U10 Birth years register under the U9/U10 Program. NSC will then do its level best to form teams strictly based on birth year. If numbers do not allow, then team(s) will be formed with the combination of birth years. MAYSA, our governing body and league coordinator, will work with NSC and other community clubs to make sure only U9 Teams play each other and U10 Teams the same.

  • Teams play fall and spring.  Registered players should plan to play both seasons.

  • 8 games/season – 4 Home & 4 Away

    • Most likely vs local surrounding communities, can be against teams in surrounding counties

    • Leagues are put together by MAYSA and evaluated by local clubs each season for team parity to allow for the best learning environment

  • Half of the games are played at Windsor Sports Commons (WSC) and half within greater Madison area, travel is required and varies by age.

  • Practices = 1 hour 15 min, 2x/week, held at WSC fields

  • Fall season = Mid-August – Early November, registration opens in June each year.

  • Spring season = Early April – Mid June, registration opens in November each year. 

  • Uniforms = Required, ordered approximately every 18 months – 2 years.  See 'Uniform Information' for more information.

  • Ball Sizes:  U9-U10 = Size 4

  • Tournaments = Usually 3 games/weekend, players should plan for 1-2 tournaments per season and may have an additional cost covered by the members of the team. The Norski Fall Bash and Norski Spring Fling count as one of the two tournaments in each season. 

  • Participate in Ball Chasing for local High School Team

Note: Younger players with the classification of a U8 birth year who register for U9/U10 may not be guaranteed a spot on a U9/U10 team.  NSC reserves the right to evaluate skill level and determine the best developmental learning environment for the player.
