U12 to U17
12U - 17U PLAYERS
The leagues are divided into boys' and girls' divisions, which play both fall and spring seasons. 12U - 17U Each season affords the opportunity to participate in about seven to ten games over the course of an 8 to 12 week season.
12U - 17U Recreational teams play small sided games in an 9v9 format. Goal Keepers are used in this age group. Each team usually holds 2 one-hour practice sessions every week. Games consist of two 25 min halves.
As always, the main emphasis is on player development, understanding the basics of the game and the utilization of basic ball handling skills. However, this emphasis goes hand in hand with an emphasis on fun and providing an overall positive soccer experience for the youth player.
Passionate Volunteer Coaches follow club curriculum with the help of experienced coaches and age group directors.
