U9/U10 Age Groups
Summary of the Loudoun Soccer U9/U10 Recreational Program
The U9/U10 program builds on the U7/U8 program by adding two more players (one of which is a goalkeeper) and using a substantially larger field. The format for spring 2012 is 7 v 7 including the goalkeeper.
Loudoun Soccer U9/U10 teams play on small fields (40 x 60 yards) that have all the same markings as full size fields. Player substitutions may only be made at quarter breaks (no free substitution) unless there is an injury and a player has to come off. Goalkeepers must be changed at each quarter, and any player who is a goalkeeper must have two other quarters of play in other positions during a game.
