Players in our U9 & U10 divisions play 7 versus 7 on the field plus goalkeepers. Every player gets to play at least 50% of each game. Teams have no more than 13 players each and play two 25 minute halves with substitutions at around the 12 minute mark during an appropriate stoppage in play. The practice location, days of week, time and length are up to the coach, but typically for these age divisions, the players practice twice a week for about an hour and a half, and games are on Saturdays. Coaches usually start contacting players the second week of August. The season will consist of 9-10 games starting the Saturday after Labor Day.
