Mini Soccer U7-U10 information


Tentative field opening for 2020 will be Tuesday, April 14 with the first games held on Saturday, April 18.


U7-U10 SOCCER runs until June 27, breaks for the summer, returning after the Labor Day weekend for several Saturday games followed by the year-end tournament, the Mini Jamboree, held on the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Field information is under the Information tab along the top of the main page of the website and then Field Information.  The actual address of a field and a map for it is under the same tab but then Field Locations/Maps.

Schedules will be posted as soon as they are completed (hopefully early April). Games may not be rescheduled by teams for any reason.

Registration for U7-10 Mini outdoor soccer typically begins in December/January each year. 
Check the website of the Club in the area you live in for details. 

Teams are formed by the Clubs.

Maximum number of players on a team: 

U7/8 teams: 16 players per team

U9/10 teams: 14 players per team

Teams usually practice one evening per week and have a game every Saturday starting when the fields open (typically early/mid April) until the end of June, we take the summer off and then return after Labor Day weekend until the year end tournament on the weekend before Thanksgiving.

U7/U8 TEAMS (maximum 16 players per team) play 4v4 with two GAMES that are each 2 halves of 12 minutes (48 minute total game time).
        Please help set up and put away the nets at all locations - not just your 'home' field.  Coaches are NOT allowed on the field.  When two scheduled teams arrive at the game field, they split into two groups and play two simultaneous games and after the first 2 halves are played, one team switches fields. GOALS MAY NOT BE SCORED WITHIN THE GOAL AREA.

U9/10 TEAMS (maximum 14 payers per team) play 7v7. Games are two 25 minute halves

       There is a huge size difference between many of the fields and goals we are using but unfortunately there are not enough fields of the recommended size to use.  Sometimes they are larger and sometimes they are smaller.  Teams must make-do with the fields as assigned.  Some fields will be lined, others will be need to be marked with cones.

ABSENT OR MISSING REF PROCEDURE - Due to the shortage of fields and officials, games will not be rescheduled due to the absence of a referee.  If no referee is available for a game, the coaches of the teams must agree to appoint someone to officiate that game.  ALL GAMES MUST START ON TIME.
