All Out Soccer

Soccer is about passion. Soccer is about dreams. Soccer is about rising above.

Go “All Out” in this awesome new program at the Jerry Long Family YMCA!

Season

All Out Soccer is a Saturday-only program with no practices or coaches. Players will be placed on teams with five or six players. Each team will play Saturdays of “regular season” soccer with 3-4 matches each day for which score will be tracked. The fourth Saturday will be a championship tournament. After the first four weeks, teams will be reshaped and a new mini-season will begin. The first day is Saturday, September 6 and we will wrap up on Saturday, October 25. Make ups will take place on Sunday afternoons. Registering for this program commits each participant to the full 8-week experience.

Age/Division

This program is open to players ages 14-18. We will create a boys division and a girls division if we have enough participation. Otherwise, we will create a single coed division.

Rules

Teams will have 5 to 6 players on them and play several games each Saturday with 4 players per side, no goalies. Games will be played on U8 size fields, which measure 40 yards long by 25 yards wide. Goals are 6’6″ tall by 12′ wide. A referee will officiate each game. There will no offside calls and the clock with run for exactly 10 minutes. Full rules will be available here as we get closer to the season.

Registration

July 1-September 2
