8U program

The 8U program is specifically developed to introduce soccer to children in a fun and safe environment.  The program is setup to have a short practice once a week at a local park or school, followed by a Saturday game.  There is no post season at this age level; however, each player receives a participation trophy at the end of the season.

Season Length
The season runs from March until the middle of May.

Time Commitment
Practice approximately 60 minutes once or twice a week (depending on coach's schedule), followed by a Saturday game lasting approximately 55 minutes.

Each player will be given a uniform which consists of a jersey, shorts, and socks. The player must provide soccer cleats, shin guards and a size 3 soccer ball.

Certification Required
All volunteers must be registered AYSO Volunteers, and all coaches must be Safe Haven Certified.

Coach - 8U Coach Cert, Safe Haven Cert, and CDC Concussion Awareness Cert

Game Format
The game is played on a small field in a 4 vs. 4 formats with NO goalkeeper. The game is played with four 10 minute quarters. Substitutions are done at each quarter, and there is a short break after the second quarter. This level introduces referees who officiate games. This level is designed to allow maximum touches to the ball.

Team Formation
The teams are formed via a draft. The player ratings are provided to all coaches prior to the draft. There are no more than 9 players on a team.

When the ball leaves the touchline it can be either thrown-in or kicked-in. At this level, the referee does not enforce offside nor hand out foul red and yellow cards. Other fouls are handled as learning experiences and are strictly indirect kicks.
