U8 (2013)

Team Structure

Up to three teams are formed with twelve players on each team; a maximum of fourteen players may be rostered per team. 

Two "A" teams are formed (Red and White teams) which will be of equal skill, and the balance of the players are rostered to a lower-flighted "B" team (Black team). 

The new USSF (United States Soccer Federation)rules being implemented in the fall of 2017 require U8 teams to play in 4v4 festivals.  Teams will be compromised of twelve players, and be split into two teams of six for the 4v4 games.  USSF rules require no score or standings be kept at the 4v4 festivals. 

Program Structure

  • Fall and Spring:  The fall season typically starts late August and ends mid-November, and the spring season starts mid-March through mid-June.  Structured 75-minute practices are held twice per week.

  • Winter:  Practices are held twice per week at our indoor turf facility starting the first week of January through mid-March.  Each winter practice is one hour in duration.

  • Tournaments:  Participation in tournaments is not mandatory for the U8 age group.  However, if the trainer(s) and/or coach(es) feel that participation in one or more tournaments throughout the soccer year would aid in the development of the team as a whole, then participation is encouraged.


During the fall and spring, a professional trainer will run a minimum of one practice per week, while the other practice may be run by either a professional trainer or by a parent coach that holds a valid soccer diploma.  Teams have the option of having a professional trainer run one or both winter sessions.
