Youth Recreational League (U9, U10 & U11)
The U9 – U11 age group is the third stage of soccer development that our players go through, commonly known as “the golden age of learning”.
The effect of the role-model is very important at this stage. Children begin to identify with famous players and successful teams, and they want to learn imaginative skills. Skill demonstration is very important, and the players learn best by “doing”.
Players move from self-centered to self-critical, and they have a high stimulation level during basic skill training. This is also an important time to teach basic principles of play and to establish a training ethic and discipline, as outlined in our Long-Term Player Development Model (LTPD).
The Ontario Soccer Association have directed that Clubs not have scores and standings at this stage but we have chosen to grandfather this change and so there will be no scores and standings up to and including U8 and U9. The U10 and U11 age groups will continue to have scores and standings. For more information on this please check out our website for Long Term Player Development.
The game time will increase towards the end of the season to reflect the game time played in the festival/finals weekend
U9: 7 on the field including a keeper, 13 on the roster
U10 & U11: 9 on the field including a keeper; 16 on the roster.
