Open Play ``Small Sided``

 Small Sided Play – Players will come in and do what every player wants…just play the game. This has been an area that I believe is overlooked. The game is the best teacher so why not use it more often. This night is meant for us to step back and let the players showcase what they know and enjoy the game. We want them to be fearless in trying new things and not be afraid to mistakes…be creative.  

ADVANTAGES OF SMALL SIDED PLAY

  • More touches than on a regular sized field
  • Constant movement off the ball
  • First touch (lots of touches in tight spaces)
  • Faster paced game = Faster thinking needed
  • Lots of 1v1 and 2v1 situations
  • Positive competitive environment
  • Great fitness
  • EVERYONE works both sides (All players attack and all defend)

All teams will play at least (4) 10 minute games in a Tournament style setup. Teams will be made at random and try to be different each week so players can make new friends. We will rotate girls and boys each week throughout the Spring season.

Cost: $10 each week you attend / pay upon arrival
