U8 House Division plays 4 v 4 on a small field (approximately 30x20 yards) with a size 3 ball. In soccer lingo, this is known as a small-sided game.
Game day will consist of three, 13 minute split-squad games with 5 minute breaks in between.
U8 teams practice 2x week for 1 hour. Practice days/times are determined by the volunteer coaches. Games are played on Sundays and scheduled between 12-3pm.
