Mini Soccer

Does your child want to play football and is between the age of 6 and 9, then why not get them interested in playing mini soccer. The principles and rules of Mini Soccer are similar to those in Association Football, except that the pitches are smaller and there are fewer players on each team.

Depending on the age group, the number of players and size of pitch can vary from four a-side for the youngest, to seven a-side for the Under-10s. The goal size for all age groups is 12ft by 6ft (3.6m by 1.8m).

More touches of the ball to increase participation and enjoyment.
Fewer players on the pitch meaning simpler decisions and better understanding.
Smaller pitches meaning greater concentration and interest among participants.
More individual success leads to more children playing. In the long term, this leads to sustained participation levels beyond this age group.
