The FFC Co-Ed U10 Soccer League is for youth aged 7-9 of all skill levels in the Stark County area. U10 Division Games will be played with a 7v7 format, with a goalie, two 25 min halves. We have selected this particular format to maximize learning for our second level of play. 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.’ Practices and games are at First Friends soccer fields located on church property.
Our Spring League begins in April and goes through Mid June. 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.
