Micro Soccer U4-U7
Micro Soccer is for 4 to 7 year olds and is played "4 vs 4" on a small (Micro) field of approximately 20x30 yards. The objective of the game is to have FUN!
A "4 vs 4" game is the ideal situation for Micro Soccer and will ensure that each player has an opportunity to touch the ball
Please see the following guides regarding Micro and Mini Soccer. NOTE: Some exceptions may apply.
Mini Soccer U9 - U11
This is the first and most important step towards playing on the "big field". Mini Soccer is a "7 vs 7" game, including keepers, and is played on a field of 60x40 yards. The game is designed in a way to get young children started playing "real" soccer but with less complicated rules.
Youth Soccer U12 and up
Starting at 12 years old and up, the soccer game will be played on a full field, "11 vs 11" including keepers, and according to the official FIFA rules.
