A number of changes are being implemented for Grade 2-4 teams beginning in the Fall, 2017 season.  These are being mandated by the USSF Player Development Initiative.

  • Grade 2 teams are moving from having 5 players on the field (including a goalie) to 4 field players with no goalie.  Our clubs will continue to use cones for goals at this level and the size of the field does not change.  Rosters will have a maximum of 8 players.
  • For Grades 2-4, no drop-kicks or punts will be allowed.
  • Grade 2-4 fields will have a “build-out” line half-way between the goal box and center line.  The receiving team will need to stay behind this line until the goalie has placed the ball in play.

U# naming convention changing in the Fall 2016 season

No Comments

Starting in the Fall 2016 season, our teams will be designated by grade rather than age.  While competitive teams are moving to a calendar age placement, our recreational clubs are staying with teams based on player’s grades to allow classmates to continue to play together.  The U# designations are being replaced by G# as follows (G stands for “grade”).  You will not see the U# or the G# designation when you register your player – we will use the entered grade on your player’s registration when creating the fall teams.

Microsoccer – U6/U7 becomes G1 (includes both kindergarten and first grade)
2nd grade – U8 becomes G2
3rd grade – U9 becomes G3
4th grade – U10 becomes G4
5th grade – U11 becomes G5
6th grade – U12 becomes G6
7th grade – U13 becomes G7
8th grade – U14 becomes G8
HSRec – U15/U16/U17/U18/U19 becomes G12 (includes grades 9-12)
