8U Program

The 8U program is specifically developed to introduce soccer to children in a fun and safe environment, while allowing them to continue to expand their skills.  The program is setup to have a short practice once or twice a week at a local park or school, followed by a Saturday game.  There is no post season at this age level; however, each player receives a participation trophy at the end of the season.
