U8 Little Americans

As mentioned on the Small Sided Changes page, beginning with the 2017-2018 season US Youth Soccer has mandated that U8 players play 4v4 "games" with no goalies and no referees.  Given this change, the Northern Counties Soccer Association, the league in which most area U8 teams have historically played, is no longer offering U8 flights.  However, Northern Counties Soccer Association will be assisting in scheduling games with a number of local clubs specifically for the U8 age group.  We are working hard to finalize the details and hope to have additional information available soon.  We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.

While not set in stone yet, below are some details about our vision for the Little Americans.  This will be a full year commitment consisting of:

Fall and Spring

  • 10 week fall season will start early September and end mid-November
  • 10 week spring season will start mid-March and end mid-June
  • 90 minute practices held twice per week (boys and girls separate) Wednesday & Friday 4-5:30pm
  • 4v4 "games" on weekends against other local club teams


  • 12 weeks of 90 minute practices held once per week indoors
  • Potential participation in indoor tournaments

All teams will have professional World Class FC trainers for all practices and "games."  Please note the days/times/fields listed above are subject to change and field location is yet to be determined.  Please contact Patti Polizzi-Walker or Mark Edgar with any further questions.
