U6-U8 Introduction

MTSC has created an exciting and encouraging program for young players to have fun while developing skill and learning the game of soccer.

The Club has adopted the parameters set fourth by USYSA, our national governing body for youth soccer, by playing small sided games at the U8 age group and under. U6 plays 3v3 and and U7/U8 play 4v4. Goalkeepers are introduced at the U8 level. The smaller number of players on the field allows for more ball time, individual accomplishments, and most importantly, MORE FUN!

Volunteer Coaches are trained by Club Technical Director, Chris Bair, and have access to MTSC coaching resources.

See the Rules of Play for details.
