U6 & U8 GAMES
Why do we let our younger players play 7v7 at such a young age?
Wouldn’t it be more appropriate for players of that age play 4v4?
· More touches of the ball
· Emphasis on technique
· Master the basics
· More playing time
· Less time spent on the bench
· Size of field relevant to age
· Happier parents seeing their child playing
Can this be set up ready for summer season?
Instead of playing on 7v7 field, can we split the field into 3/ 4 mini pitches for the players to play their matches on?
Clubs can still keep to the schedule, but play 3 or 4 mini games of 4v4. This will let the players have 3 or 4 games every time they travel.
Size of field (pitch) Min (L) 20yds - Max 24yds
Min (W) 16yds - Max 20yds
U8 can play 5v5, but that includes goalkeeper.
