Mites Division Info

Mites Division is for girls born between 1/1/08 and 12/31/09 

Team Size: 
Team size averages 12-14 players per team. 

The Game:
Mites Division plays on a smaller soccer field.  The games are played with teams of 8 vs. 8. Seven field players and a goalie.   

This optimizes the amount of ball 'touches' each player gets.  It is designed to familiarize players with the game of soccer, and teambuilding.   Each quarter is 15 minutes. And coaches should ensure players will get equal playing time.

 

Time Commitment:
One practice per week for one hour.  

One to two games per weekend. Most games are played Saturday. There may be 1 or 2 scheduled on Sunday in order to play an 8 game season.
 

The Season:
The soccer season is 8 weeks long. 

Spring:  Practices usually begin beginning in April (after school vacation) and the season is over by the end of June.
Fall:  Practices usually begin during the last week of August and the season is over by the end of October.
