Teams in these age groups play 7 versus 7 with a goal keeper.  We continue to keep the emphasis on the fun and learning of the game.

The Developmental Program is designed for the player that is still building a basic foundation in the game of soccer.  Its purpose is to build individual ball skills and confidence in 1v1 situations, encourage creativity and attacking play of individual players as well as provide a positive team environment!  This is a season long program and the environment is created in a way that will encourage players to continue growing in the game and build a lifelong passion of the sport.

Build-out line: When the Goalkeeper receives the ball from the attacking team, thus changing possession of the ball, players from the team that just was on attack must retreat to the build out line approximately ¼ of the field in distance.  Once the goalkeeper has distributed the ball to the intended player, the opposing team can begin to enter and play as usual.  This does not apply when the ball has been passed back to the goalkeeper from his/her own teammates.
