Youngsters in this age bracket start focusing on mastering some of the basics of the sport. They crave feedback from coaches and parents on how they’re performing certain skills and how they’re progressing with new ones. The desire to compete carries much more prominence for some youngsters in this age range than others.
To determine the group appropriate for your child, see the following chart established by US Soccer. Children in U-8 are under 8, (they are 6 & 7 years old by Dec 31), generally first and second graders, but not necessarily.
Birth Year 2014 & 2015
Our season will begin the week of August 28. The group will be divided into set teams and will need to stay with their cohort for each practice.

- Games will be on Saturday mornings at Wason Pond Recreation field on Route 102.
