The age determination date is August 1st for all age groups except the 5-6 Co-ed. For 5-6 Co-ed, a child must be 5 years old by December 1, 2018. No exceptions.
|5-6 Co-ed||7-8 Boys||9-10 Boys||11-12 Boys||13-14 Boys||15-17 Boys|
|7-8 Girls||9-10 Girls||11-12 Girls||13-14 Girls||15-17 Girls|
Parents may choose to play their child 1 age group up. For example, if a child is 8 on August 1st and thus qualifies to play in the 7-8 age group, the parents can choose instead to play the child in the 9-10 age group.
The 5-6 Co-ed age group is more clinic oriented. Each session is split between practice time and game time. For children who have played this format previously and are ready for a full game, parents may choose the 7-8 age group. Just remember the size difference between a 6 year old and an 8 year old. Once you have selected an age group, you can move your child to another age group only if there is space available.
Time and Place
The program will begin in late November/early December and will run through mid-March 2019 (Dates are dependent on age group). All games for the 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12 age groups are played at the Forest Hill/Hickory Activities Center on Commerce Road in Forest Hill, MD. Games for the 13-14 and 15-17 age groups are played at the Harford Sports Performance Center at 121 Industry Lane in Forest Hill, MD.
Each age group meets only 1 day a week. There is no practice day and game day like outdoor soccer. Generally, the first 3 weeks of the season are practice sessions. After that, the regular season games begin. No standings are kept. There will also be an end-of-season tournament for all age groups except the 5-6 Co-ed. The tournament is based on a random draw match-up.
Preliminarily, the different age groups will play as follows:
- The 5-6 teams will play on Sunday afternoon (Saturday is possible as an overflow day).
- The 7-8 and 9-10 teams will play on Thursday or Friday evenings, or Saturday . This will follow a rotating schedule as has been done in the past*.
- The 11-12 Boys teams will play on Monday evenings.
- The 11-12 Girls teams will play on Tuesday evenings.
- The 13-14 teams will play on Monday or Thursday evenings.
- The 15-17 teams will play on Friday evenings.
These days are subject to change based upon registration response and field availability.
* An example of the rotating schedule could be: Week 1 on Thursday, Week 2 on Friday, Week 3 on Saturday morning, Week 4 on Saturday afternoon, Week 5 on Saturday night, Week 6 would return to Thursday night. This rotation will depend on the number of teams in each age group.
All players will need shin guards, soccer socks to cover the shin guards, soccer ball, sneakers or an indoor soccer shoe (no shoes with spikes/cleats), and water for each session.
