Fallston Soccer is pleased to announce a new format for our U-7 boys and girls in-house teams.  

The players using this format in 2019 are the players graduating from our clinic program.  Fallston Soccer continues to put the kids first by implementing 4v4 soccer, we are following the “best practice” trends in the United States and around the world.

The 4v4 model:

  • Fewer players will instill confidence and that will result in more touches
  • Less coaching more playing
  • More exposure to defending and attacking situations
  • Game is less complicated
  • Encourages quick decision making
  • Provides opportunity to develop creative play
  • Players have more opportunities to score goals

 How it will be played:

  • No referees, coaches will be on the field
  • No score
  • No goalies
  • Same size field as clinic
  • Size 4 soccer ball
  • No throw ins – play will resume from a kick-in
  • Teams of approximately 10 players are created and practice together. On game day, they divide in half to play their opponent who does the same.
  • (4) 10 minute games, substitutions on the fly
  • The 'half teams' play simultaneously on side-by-side fields
  • “Ladder Game” format will be used where teams shift after 10 minutes for a new opponent

YOU’RE INVITED! The first week of August, we will host a free clinic for parents and coaches covering the 4v4 format.

More information to follow soon on our 4v4 clinic!
