U8 Girls Information

2019 Spring U8 Girls Update

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. Green shirts are home jersey and silver shirts are away jersey.

U8 teams practice 2x week for 1 hour.  Practice days/times are determined by the volunteer coaches.  Games are played on Saturdays and scheduled between 9am-12pm.

Home team (listed first) gets nets out of field box for 9am game. Away team (listed second) puts nets away in field box after game.

U8 SPRING UPDATE

Our U8 division (boys and girls) will have Monday practices from 5-6pm, location TBD with Celtic travel staff.  Coaches of the U8 teams are strongly encouraged to attend these training sessions also as to encourage knowledge and continuity with further training sessions.  U8 coaches will choose a 2nd practice day/time, so U8 will continue to have (2) practices per week.  As with our practice policy, they are not required to be made up due to weather related cancellations by the Palatine Park District.
