The FFC Co-Ed U10 Soccer Fall league is soccer for youth aged 7-9 of any skill level in the Stark County area. This is designed to build off the footwork and basic soccer skills taught in the U7 soccer clinic. Prior participation in the U7 soccer clinic is not required for this league. In each of our soccer leagues, we seek to teach our players the game of soccer in an age appropriate, healthy and encouraging environment. We believe that there is such a thing as ‘healthy competition.’
Our Fall League begins in August and the Spring League begins in April. Registrations are available a month prior. There will be a short devotional time where we share biblical principles with the players and encourage them to pursue a life with Christ every week. The season will conclude with a league celebration that includes food, fun, and league champion awards.
Games with a goalie will be played and score will be kept. Games will be in an 7 v 7 format for maximum learning with two 25 minute halves. Size 4 ball recommended.
League Dates: Fall 2023: August 26 – October 28 . End of Season Celebration Nov 3
