Fall 2017 Practice schedule
**** This schedule is subject to change for the Fall 2017 Season, based on the membership, but we will try to keep it the same. ******
The U9-U10 teams begin playing with goal keepers and play a on a larger field that uses traditional lines to mark out the goal and penalty areas. The number of players varies by age group from 6X6 to 8X8.
The U6-U8 matches are played with a small-sided format. The teams are split into two 4 person teams and play two simultaneous games against the opposing team. No scores are kept and the coaches try to match evenly skilled players to play each other.
All matches are played on Saturday from 9:00 to 3:00 depending on the schedule and field availability. There are no scores kept at the U6 – U10 level and trophies are awarded to all players.
