In this league, we will focus more on individual skill, fitness and sportsmanship, providing an opportunity for children to be challenged through fun games and team interaction. Children will also be introduced to competition in a developmentally appropriate manner. This would be taking all the skills learned in the 3-4 year old league and building off that at a more elite and structural level in order to ensure proper growth of competition throughout the sport of soccer.

In this league, we will focus on implementing more rules into the actual game on the field. This is where we will introduce referees into the faster game of play to ensure they will be aware of the basic rules of the sport. While this will be a big step from the last two age brackets, we will still be implementing games so the players can build off of their basic knowledge of skill, fitness, and sportsmanship in order to bring their competition to that next level of play. All of this will be twined into the positive attitude and fun of playing soccer.

In this league it is important to ensure the fair level of play for each individual on the teams. We will be implementing the full rules as brought to us by USA Soccer, and we will focus on the competitive aspect of the sport of soccer. At this level, these players should have an amteur-elite base knowledge of sportsmanship, skill, and fitness. Thus, the practices would focus more on the art of dribbling, shooting, and passing in order to perform at an elite level of competition. This league will be followed by a playoff tournament.In this league, this is where the full range of the sport will come into play. Usually this is where you start to see a real increase in how fast the game is supposed to be moving. We will have a full range of referees for each of these games. This is where positions come into major effect by implementing where each player is supposed to go and what part of the field he/she will play. Usually at this level, the competition for this age bracket is at a much more competitive level. In accordance, we must have them know to keep the same sportsmanship, skill, and positive attitude about the game in order to create a playable atmosphere.In this league, we will focus primarily on the sport of soccer as a whole.
