Under 8 players (U8 Age Group)

See our main Rec Season Information page for the specific birth years for the current registration season that apply for this Age Group.

The U8 Age Groups are divided by gender.  Therefore, boys and girls will not be competing with or against each other. 

U8 teams practice once a week and typically play one game on Saturday, although we will schedule a couple of Saturdays with double headers.  (See our Make Up Game Info Tab for more details).   Practice times and days will be determined by the coach.  Practices usually last between 45 minutes to an hour.

Games are played in a four vs. four format.  We will schedule a couple of Saturdays with double headers. (See our Make Up Game Info Tab for more details).  There are NO KEEPERS (goalies); however, there will be a referee on the field and the coaches will remain on the side-lines.  There are no off-sides rules in the U8 Age Group, but other rules such as proper throw-ins, goal-kicks, corner-kicks, and fair play will be taught. 

Heading is not allowed by TSSA Rules during games in the U8 Age Group, therefore heading of the ball will not be taught by coaches nor should be encouraged by parents.

U8 players will use a Size 3 soccer ball.
