 ABOUT THE U10 - U15 DIVISIONS

 

At the intramural levels there are separate divisions for the boys and girls. We play against other soccer clubs in our league (Lancaster County) and although we do travel to away games, intramural teams are not "Travel Teams". Also beginning at U-10 the games are officiated by league referees.

 

U10 Boys & Girls

Beginning at the U10 level the games are more competitive, scores are kept & referees are used. Although the rules are enforced at this level, referees may be lenient & allow a player a 2nd attempt to correct an improper throw-in etc. Games are played with 7 players on each side (7v7).

 

Small Sided Games (U10 & U12)

Games played with less than the 11v11 format are called small games. Small sided games at the U10 & U12 level is highly recommended by USYS.

 

U12 Boys & Girls

The only difference between the U10 and U12 divisions is the number of players on the field. Play format for U12 is 9v9 (including keeper).

 

U15 Boys & Girls

U15 play on a full size field with 11 players (11 v 11) including keeper.
