Under 12

For players born in 2005 and 2006


Under 12 teams expand to having 12 - 14 players to a team. Practice sessions are 60 min long.  Games are played in an 9 vs 9 format with a goalkeeper in the goal.

Most games will be played at the GSA Cole Road Complex, but depending on the number of GSA teams in the division, some play might be played at neighboring soccer associations in Gwinnett or Dekalb Counties. 

Teams are formed utilizing player and coach requests in order to ensure as much parity as possible.   Players who participate in the fall season are returned to their teams in the spring season.

Teams are formed approximately two weeks before practices begin.  You will be sent a roster with your coaches contact information at that time. 

 

PROGRAM DATES AND DETAILS
Games begin the second Saturday in September for the fall season and the second Saturday in March for the spring season.  Practices begin two weeks before the first games. You can expect 8 games and 10 practices each season barring any weather related cancellations. 

REGISTRATION

Registration for our U12 program is limited by the number of parents who volunteer to coach.  We prefer to place two coaches per team to decrease the efforts involved team management and practice coverage.  PLEASE CONSIDER SIGNING UP AS A COACH DURING REGISTRATION.  Delays can occur in team formation if a shortage of coaches occur.

COACHING
Our recreation program is parent volunteer coached.  GSA offers GA Soccer run coaching courses every season (minimum number of attendees required).  We run background checks on all coaches and team managers as the season begins.  You can volunteer to coach during the registration process for your player.  

Registration for our U12 program is limited by the number of parents who volunteer to coach.  We prefer to place two coaches per team to decrease the efforts involved team management and practice coverage.  PLEASE CONSIDER SIGNING UP AS A COACH DURING REGISTRATION.  Delays can occur in team formation if a shortage of coaches occur. 

PRACTICES
Each U12 team practices twice a week in the evening. During the registration process we ask you to provide your preferred day and time for practice.  Our Age Group Commissioners who put the teams together) will do their best to meet your needs as best as they can.  We must match the practices requests from the coaches with the parent requests; practice day and time requests are therefore, not guaranteed to be met.  

GAMES

Games are held on Saturdays during the hours of 8 am and 5 pm, with games for the younger players generally occurring in the early part of the day.  Games times vary each week.  Schedules are provided one week before games begin. 

BRING TO EACH SESSION
Every player should bring their own size 4 ball to practice.  Each play must wear shinguards at all times; these can be purchased at a local sporting goods store.  Recreation players wear one of their jerseys to practice and the other to games each week.  Your coach will let you know which to wear.  Cleats or turf shoes are not required; standard athletic shoes are fine for this age.   Bring a large bottle of water and consider bringing a small snack.
