half of the hour for practice and the second half hour to
scrimmage. U6 teams may practice one night during
the week at the coach's discretion. The U6 division
is basically an introduction to soccer, with a relaxed and
informal atmosphere. U8-U15 teams practice one
evening during the week and compete in one game per
weekend (usually Saturdays with an occasional Sunday
afternoon game). U10, U12 & U15 teams may
practice up to two times per week at the coach's
discretion, based on practice field availability.
All U6-U15 games are played in the small-sided format with
fewer players on the team and field during a game on a
sized down field.
