U-05 & U-06 Divisions



Our U-05 and U-06 divisions are specially designed for our youngest players (U= under, so U5 players are 4 years old / U6 players are 5 years old).

All players in these divisions are taught the elementary rules of soccer through fun and exciting drills like Sharks and Minnows, Clean Your Room, and Bad Coach. At the end of the season, players will have learned the skills necessary to stop, pass, dribble, and do throw-ins.

U-05 is a Jamboree style program.

The U-06 division is designed to allow all players to play with all other players in their division. Parents are encouraged to cheer every player on the field, but are discouraged from coaching from the sideline. Our goal is exercise, and entertainment for the children, as they learn to play soccer. We do not keep W-L records.

For a child to be eligible to register, he/she must reach the age of 4 by the start of our soccer season.

U-08 to U-19 Divisions

In the U8 division teams play 5 vs 5 and the field size is 20-25 by 35-40 yards.
The small sided format allows for more opportunities for players to be involved with game play.

The U10 division employs a 7 vs 7 format and goalies are on the field. In the U10 division and above, games are played at fields in region 285 as well as neighboring regions in Area 11R, meaning some travel is involved on game day. The field is 35-45 by 55-65 yards and the halves are 25 minutes long.


As players get older and move through the U12, U14 and U16 divisions, more focus is placed on advanced concepts involving positional and tactical play.

By the time players reach the U19 division, games are 90 minutes in length.
