Under 12 teams expand to having 12 - 14 players to a team. Practice sessions are 60 min long. Games are played in an 8 vs 8 format with a goalkeeper in the goal.
Teams are formed utilizing both assessments and player and coach requests in order to ensure as much parity as possible. Players are returned to their teams in the spring season.
UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT NEEDS
All players are required to wear shinguards to all soccer practices and games and provide a ball and water bottle for their personal use. Cleats may be worn during games but may not be worn during practices. Shinguards are required for all practices and games.
