The U8 World Cup program is designed to support a more structured and developmentally appropriate environment for U8 players. Headed up by professional trainers, age-specific curricula are delivered each season based on the United States Soccer Federation’s (USSF) Grassroots soccer approach to better support the development of youth players. 

For U8 players, we build the season around a World Cup experience. Not only will this add to the excitement of game day, but players can learn a bit about the players, culture and countries associated with the team they’ll represent for the season. 

U8 will have one practice and one game per week, and they will follow a 5v5 game format.
