GAMES OVERVIEW

The first few Saturdays are practices, and then games are played on Saturdays for the rest of the season. Instructional games are played in-house (against other LYSC teams). If a game is cancelled due to rain the game is played the following Monday in place of practice.

 

U-6 Games: Four players are used on each side during the games - two offensive players, and two defensive players. Playing with 4 players per side allows the kids a better opportunity to "play the ball" and be more involved. No goalie is used for the U6 level.

 

U-8 Games: are played with 5 players per side (5 V 5). Goalies are used at this level.

The emphasis at this level is for the kids to start playing their positions (Left & right offence & defense) and not to chase the ball around the field. - "boy is this a hard habit to break".

 ABOUT THE U6 & U8 DIVISIONS

 

At the instructional levels the emphasis is on learning the game & developing skills. Scores are not kept for these games. All games are played "in house" (against the other LYSC teams) at community park where practices are held. The coaches are also the referees allowing them to work with the kids on the field of play. Since the emphasis is on learning, the rules are not strictly enforced & coaches/referees allow a player to re-do an improper throw-in etc. as may times as it take to insure the child learns the proper techniques.

 

Parents/Guardians are encouraged to become involved with practice, & may assist on the field during the games. Please let your coach know if you would like to assist during a game, or at practice. Your help & participation is always greatly appreciated.

 

U-6 Games: Four players are used on each side (4v4) during the games - two offensive players, and two defensive players. Playing with 4 players per side allows the kids a better opportunity to "play the ball" and be more involved. No goalie is used for the U6 level.

 

U-8 Games: are played with 5 players per side (5v5). Goalies are used at this level. The emphasis at this level is for the kids to start playing their positions (Left & right offence & defense) and not to chase the ball around the field. - "boy is this a hard habit to break".
