Why Small-Sided Games 
  1.  Because we want our young soccer players to touch the soccer ball more often and become more skillful with it! (Individual technical development) 
  2. Because we want our young soccer players to make more, less-complicated decisions during the game! (Tactical development) 
  3. Because we want our young soccer players to be more physically efficient in the field space they are playing in! (Reduced field size) 
  4. Because we want our young soccer players to have more individual teaching time with the coach! Less players on the field and less players on the team will guarantee this! (Need to feel worthy and need to feel important) 
  5. Because we want our young soccer players to have more, involved playing time in the game! (More opportunity to solve problems that only the game presents) 
  6. Because we want our young soccer players to have more opportunity to play on both sides of the ball! (More exposure to attacking and defending situations) 
  7. Because we want our young soccer players to have more opportunities to score goals! (Pure excitement)

A Goal can be scored from a direct corner kick.
   

Hand Ball:

 

A hand ball infraction occurs when a player handles the ball DELIBERATELY. The 'hand' includes the entire arm up to the top of the shoulder. Instinctive, self-protective reactions are not penalized at this young age. Accidental contact (ball striking hand or arm with no intent by the player) is not an offense and should not be penalized.
   
Slide Tackles:  No Slide Tackles. We want to promote that the players stay on their feet.
   

No Heading:

 

Consistent with the US Soccer mandates on heading the ball, heading is banned for all divisions 12U and below in both practices and matches. An indirect free kick will be awarded to the opposing team if a player deliberately touches the ball with his/her head during a match (taken where the player touched the ball with his/her head).
