Madeira soccer does not take any late registrations. Though we are sympathetic to those that missed the window, here are a few reasons we do not accept registrations late.
- It is very common for us to get up to 50 families that reach out after the deadline closes. Though there are many reasons someone might have missed the deadline, we simply do not want to say yes to some, and no to other's. As a board we believe we need to be fair and consistent. We have tried different marketing strategies in the past but the post deadline reach out was still evident.
- Uniform orders are a major reason as well. Our vendor needs about 4-6 weeks of lead time to get uniforms shipped to us. This is an improvement from our last vendor. We simply cannot add to a bulk order that is already in progress.
- Rosters are carefully calibrated for certain numbers and take a lot of time to develop. Rosters are also due to the league prior to a season starting well in advance. With over 450 kids a season we need time on our side!
Again, we do want to empathize that you may have missed the deadline. We encourage families to set a reminder in June and January when we always have open registrations. We hope we can see you and your family on the fields soon to come.
