Spring League 

 

 

 

Read how to sign up as a TEAM or an INDIVIDUAL below.

 

The 6 game Spring league will happen during the months of April and May 2017.  Each team and player will be guaranteed at least 6 games.  The league will take place on Friday afternoons.  All games will be played on turf and some games will be played under the lights, rain or shine.

 

Why play 4v4 ? 

 

The 4v4 system accelerates development of technical ability and game intelligence. 

 

Small pictures are clearer for children; space and options are more compatible with their abilities. 4v4 is the smallest sided game you can have that has all the elements of a real soccer match without any of the confusions that surround learning to play soccer (football).

 

In a real soccer match children have the option of passing the ball forwards, square or backwards. Three children cannot do this because one of the di rections will be missing. With five children the extra one duplicates one of the elements. He becomes “also wide, also deep or also back.” This “also” position clutters the picture.

 

4v4 provides the minimum numbers needed for all of the parts that make up a soccer game. One player is up top for penetration. Two are needed for width and one holds back to supply depth. In 4v4 the responsibilities are very clear. All tasks are covered and none are shared, which keeps things simple during soccer drills and match situations.

 

  • All games will be played on turf, rain or shine, at the Mustang Soccer Complex in Danville.
  • The season will be an 6 week season of 4v4 games.
