Micro Soccer

U5, U6 and U7 teams (4-6 yr.), play Micro soccer. It involves short games on small fields with no goalie, pop-up goals, and 3-4 players to a side. Games are two 20 minute periods. This allows these young players plenty of opportunity to run and get a maximum number of touches on the ball, without worrying a lot about playing positions. Teams have small rosters of players with a maximum of 8 per team. Micro teams play only other BYSC micro teams. The emphasis is on beginning skills of ball handling and passing. Scores are not kept and there are no standings. Shorts, shin guards, soccer cleats, and a ball must be provided by each player.

 

Practices

Team Practices will start in late August. The practice time (usually once a week) is determined by the volunteer coaches who make an effort to find a time suitable for all players on the team. Micro teams primarily use North Beach Elementary field for practices. 

 

What is needed to play?

  • Shirt/Jersey (provided by the club)
  • Shin guards (worn under socks)
  • Socks (must cover the shin guards)
  • Shorts (should be close to the same color as the other players)
  • Soccer Cleats (no metal studs, no toe cleat)

*Ages for Soccer – SYSA Recreational Clubs use a “school year” based age system to build teams. “AGE” is that of the player as of July 31 of the current year. Teams and ages are referred to as U (under), then an age. For example 6 year olds play on U7 teams.
