WELCOME TO THE 2023/2024 COMPETITIVE TRAVEL (INDOOR AND OUTDOOR) REGISTRATION WITH MAGIC SOCCER FC!
WHAT: The Competitive Program is the most exclusive Magic Soccer F.C training program. The Program is aimed at boys and girls aged from 8 to 19 years. All of the players of this program will train 2-3 days per week and play competitive games on weekends.
All travel tournaments are optional. You will receive a link to register for each season's tournaments during the winter and summer in a separate registration session. The link to register for specific tournaments will be emailed to all registered competitive players prior to the indoor and outdoor seasons, and your team manager will also remind you.
This registration session will allow you to provide parent contact and player medical information, acquire a US Club Soccer player card, complete and acknowledge all US Club Soccer and Magic Soccer FC waivers and policies, select your participation level(s) within competitive travel, and submit payment.
Age divisions are determined by birthyear within US Club Soccer. Please refer to the US Club Soccer Birth Year and Season Matrix to verify you are selecting the appropriate age division within the registration module. Players who anticipate they'll be "playing up" should still select the age division corresponding to their birthdate within the age matrix, and coaches will make a determination to move players up to another division after registration and tryouts.
Magic Soccer FC has a "no refund" policy, therefore this registration will not be refunded upon completion, so please try to be certain of your plans to participate before choosing program options. There are certain exceptions where refunds will be issued, and you can check the refund webpage for details.
All registered competitive players who intend to play in any competition must have a US Club Soccer player card and insurance. As part of this registration, you will be able to complete the necessary process to acquire a player card.
The player card is valid for the US Club Soccer seasonal year (August thru July), which covers our indoor and outdoor seasons. Typically, players will acquire cards for the indoor season, and then they are still good throughout the outdoor season. However, they then expire and need to be renewed for the next US Club Soccer calendar year.
If you do not have a player card you cannot be on the official roster and participate in any games!
The vast majority of players will need to complete this step during this registration. However, there may be some edge case scenarios where a player card is not required such as:
Players will need to upload proof of birth (birth certificate. passport, or government ID) as part of the player card registration process. Additionally, they will need to provide a headshot photo for their player card. While US Club Soccer rules are obviously not as strict as an official US Passport, it's still recommended you follow the general guidelines for a passport style photo when supplying the player's headshot, so as to avoid issues with acceptance and approval. Simple things like the photo should be in color, taken recently, removing headwear or eyewear, not using filters, having someone else take the photo (no selfies), using a plain background, including just the players face from shoulders and above in the photo, cropping/sizing the photo to appropriate dimensions, etc.
If you have acquired a player card with Magic Soccer FC in previous seasons, and have not transferred to another club, we have your existing birth certificate and headshot photo on file. We will continue to use these documents during annual renewals, unless you provide us with new copies in this registration. Therefore, the birth certificate and player photo fields are left as optional on the registration, but keep in mind they are mandatory for any new players who are getting a player card for the first time.

You may not choose to delay payments by misaligning the scheduled payment timeframes with your actual participation in soccer activities. For example, if you choose "indoor season only", then you cannot use the payment plan that covers the entire calendar year or the summer season only, where your indoor season payment dates would be scheduled in April/June/July. Admins will contact you and adjust your scheduled payment dates to align with the season you're actually participating in if this occurs.
Payment Options will be available for selection on the Shopping Cart Page.
