Modified Soccer

U-11 and U-12 teams play 9v9 soccer. Fields are around 50yd x 80yd. Games are two 30 minute halves. Referees are scheduled through the league and cover many games although coaches still fill-in. Girls and boys play on separate teams in separate leagues. Team rosters have a maximum of 14 players. U-11 and U-12 teams play other BYSC teams as well as teams from SYSA. The rules for U-10 (and above) are developed and maintained by SYSA. Scores are kept and there are standings. Shorts, shin guards, soccer cleats, and a ball must be provided by each player. There is an end of season city wide double elimination tournament that any team may enter. The emphasis is on continued skill development, and the introduction of team play tactics.

 

Practices

Team Practices will start in mid-late August. The practice time is determined by the volunteer coaches who make an effort to find a time suitable for all players on the team.

 

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)

*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 10 year olds play on U11 teams.
