8U Micro Soccer - 2009/2010

For Boys and Girls Born 2010 & 2011

8U Micro Soccer is a coed program for boys and girls ages eight and under, with smaller fields, shorter games, and only 10 players (4 field players and a goalie 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


About 8U Micro Soccer

During the season, teams meet twice a week for 1 hour and 15 mins. The first 20 minutes will be reserved for team practice, and then followed by a 40-minute game broken into four 10 minute quarters. All games will be controlled by one or two referees.

** There is NO HEADING AT ALL. Any headed ball will be ruled a dead ball and possession will be given to the team who kicked the ball at the spot of the infringement. Heading will not be taught at this age.
