Recreational Program

8U-14U Program Details

The Recreational Program includes coed teams for 8U, 12U and 14U.  The season begins in late August/early September and runs through the first week of November. It starts up again in mid April and runs through mid June.  A total of 16 games (8-9 in Fall and 7-8 in Spring) will be played at various local area facilities. Rained out games will be rescheduled if possible.  Teams are coached by volunteer coaches.  Most games are played on weekends though a few games each season can be scheduled on a weeknight.

FEES for 2021/2022
$300 for the year, includes both fall and spring seasons, a uniform, all league and referee fees and a 1 day in-house tournament/festival in the spring. We also have a play date in the winter to connect with our families and get players excited about the upcoming spring season!

PRACTICE/GAME INFORMATION 
8U teams will have one practice each week. The practice day and time are determined by the coach. All 8U play the 4v4 game format. There is no goalkeeper. Game time is 4 x 10 minute quarters. No offside will be called. A size 3 ball is used.

10U teams will have 1-2 practices during the week.  These players will play in the 7v7 game format. There are 6 field players + goalkeeper. Game time is 2 x 25 minute halves. Offside is called.  A size 4 ball is used.

12U players will have 1 to 2 practices during the week.  The teams will play in the 9v9 format. There are 8 field players + goalkeeper. Offside is called. Game time is 2 x 30 minute halves. A size 4 ball is used.

14U players will have 1-2 practices during the week.  The teams play in the 11v11 game format. There are 10 field players + goalkeeper. Game time is 2 x 35 minute halves. Offside is called. A size 5 ball is used.

For the 10U game format, laws of the game use a "build-out line." A build out line is a horizontal line drawn from sideline to sideline 14-yards in front of each goal, build-out lines will encourage possession and playing the ball out of the back. When a goalkeeper has the ball in hand or takes a goal-kick, the opposing team remains behind the build-out line until the ball is put into play. The goalkeeper can choose to play immediately before the other team retreats behind the build out line, which means all players can play from where they are positioned at that time. The build out line also indicates where offside can be called, as teams cannot be called for offside between the midfield and build-out line. As part of small-sided standards, there will be no offside infraction before the 10U age group. New rules also ban headers as well as punts and drop kicks from the goalkeeper.
