New Elementary Division Structure
Thursday, August 14, 2014
As our program has grown we are fortunate to be able to restructure our elementary division to better focus the age groups on development. We are introducing an Early, Middle and Late Elementary division structure.
Early Elementary will serve as a tranisition to the bigger field for 1st graders. They will use the season to get used to a referee on the field and to adjust a larger number of players on the field. This will remain a Saturday only commitment with a training session prior to the game each week (similar to their PeeWee experience). Middle Elementary will be for 2nd and 3rd grade players and will introduce a mid week practice. Late Elementary will be for 4th and 5th grade players and will introduce additional soccer rules such as offsides.
We are excited about this structure as it narrows the range of ages in each division and will set up a strong development environment for all players involved.
