Our U7/U8 program is designed for children to be introduced to soccer through different skill sets, to learn to work together as a team, to learn to work together as a team, and to prepare to make the jump to recreational or travel soccer.
Prior soccer playing experience is preferred, but not required. Please note: if your child has little to no soccer experience, please mention on the registration form, so that our soccer staff can help with placement of your child.
Our U7/U8 program follows the US Soccer 4v4 Standards. At this age level, the kids practice once or twice per week, and they play one game on the weekends against other AFC United teams.
Practice schedule is determined by the coach. Games are scheduled predominantly on Saturday mornings. Our parents need to be aware that our teams may occasionally have games on Sunday afternoons -- including the Bethany UNITE Festival on the last Sunday in September.
Teams are primary co-ed; gender-based teams will be formed when there are a sufficient number of players.
