Many 8 and 9 year olds have had some experience playing soccer in the past and are continuing with it because the sport has piqued their interest, however many will be new to the sport. Our goal is to keep the positive momentum going by adding to their foundation of skills and fuel their desire to continue playing by conducting practices that are both challenging, fun and welcoming to children of ALL experience and ability levels.
This age group is for kids with birth years 2011 and 2010. See the following chart established by US Soccer.
Our season will begin August 26. There are generally 2 practices per week, and one game each weekend. At our first few sessions will be evaluating players and developing teams. Children will be divided onto teams the first week of September. Practices for all the children in this age group are Monday & Wednesdays, from 5:45 to 7:15 pm, at the lower town field, near the school. Games are scheduled through our Intertown partners at the Derry Soccer Club, http://derrysoccerclub.org/recreation-hawks/intertown-schedule .
Children should be properly equipped at every practice and game with shin guards, socks that cover the guard, sneakers or cleats, a size 4 soccer ball and a water bottle.
