Southwestern Soccer Club

6U Micro Soccer (2012/2013)

For Boys and Girls Born In 2012 & 2013

U6 Micro Soccer is a coed program for boys and girls ages six and under, with smaller fields, shorter games, and only six players (four per side) on the field at a time. The program is strictly developmental, with an emphasis on learning and fun rather than on winning or scores. Smaller teams and fewer players on the field allow each player to be more engaged in the game and provides a better learning environment for all participants

6U Micro Soccer Summary

Teams meet Tuesdays and Thursdays between 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm and 6:45 pm - 7:45 pm.
The first half hour is reserved for team practice, and the second half hour is devoted to gameplay, with coaches taking the place of referees to supervise play and help children learn.


Age Requirement

SWSC 6U Micro Soccer teams are for boys and girls who were born in either 2012 or 2013. 


Team Size

Each team roster contains 6 players. A maximum number of players is set at 8. This ensures more playing time and further development for each participant.
