Age Group U8

 

  • Parents must sit opposite of players at this division
  • There will be 4 x 10 minute quarters (there is a 5 minute half time intermission).
  • There will be 4 players on the field at a time (create a rotation for your substitutions. I usually sub every 5 minutes).  WE WILL EVALUATE THE 4 PLAYERS AND MAY INCREASE TO 5.
  • There is no goal keepers at U8.  We want to encourage players to play defense but not stand in front of the goal when the ball is on the other side of the field. 
  • Corner kicks are in play
  • Throw ins are in play. We want to teach the children to make sure the ball goes completely over their head and they keep both feet down. In the event, a foot comes up we want to reinforce the good habit :)
  • GOAL KICKS are in play. THE DEFENSIVE TEAM MUST RETREAT TO THE MIDFIELD LINE BEFORE THE KICK IS IN PLAY.  ONCE THE BALL IS IN PLAY, THE DEFENSIVE TEAM MAY GO FOR IT.
  • We do not keep score at this division. (We want to build fun and enjoyment. Rather than winning at all costs)
  • No heading by any player
  • There are Referees for this division.  Coaches may still be on the field but the referee makes the final decision for the game following the Laws of the Game.
Equipment Needs
 
Each player must have the following items for practice and games. 

Size 3 soccer ball, shin guards, something to drink, and soccer cleats (cleats are optional, but recommended). 

Team jersey, black shorts and socks are required on game days.
