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. We are currently in discussion with a number of local clubs to form the Elite Youth Development Academy, which will be a league formed 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.

Fall and Spring
All teams will have professional World Class FC trainers for all practices and "games." See more information below about the EYDA. Please contact Patti Polizzi-Walker with any further questions.
