U12 soccer creates a fun, soccer environment in which players learn to enjoy the game through greater skills. Individual player development continues to be the focus as team concepts are reinforced. Fundamental soccer techniques are reinforced and players continue to develop individual and team tactics of the game through exposure to a variety of soccer positions. Principles of attacking and defending are incorporated into age appropriate soccer activities. Players are placed in coed or girls teams that are led by a volunteer head coach who conducts practice with support from the Recreational Director. Teams practice twice a week for an hour and play regularly scheduled 9v9 (including goalkeepers) soccer games typically on Saturdays. All of the rules of soccer are in effect for games.
