Overview/Benefits

Loudoun Soccer is pleased to offer its 7th and 8th Grade players the opportunity to compete in our Classic division, launched in Fall 2012.

Benefits of the Classic Division:

  • Teams are organized by individual grade and placed in separate divisions (e.g., 7th grade boys, 8th grade boys, 7th grade girls, 8th grade girls)
  • Teams practice twice per week, led by volunteer coaches.
  • All players are eligible to participate – no evaluation process required.
  • Teams play 11v11.
  • Standings are kept.
  • All teams participate in end-of-season, single-elimination tournament, which is included in the player’s registration fee. Awards are given to the champion and finalist in each playoff bracket.

Fall 2019 Playoffs

Fall 2019 Playoff Details:

Format:

  • Every team participates.
  • Using standings from the regular season (first seve weeks of season), teams are placed into brackets for a single-elimination playoff (Saturday, 10/26).
  • Multiple brackets will be formed. Champions and Finalists will be declared in each bracket.
  • Teams will play no more than two games on each day.

Playoff Brackets:
7th Grade Boys Bracket
7th Grade Girls Bracket
8th Grade Boys Bracket
8th Grade Girls Bracket

Regular Season Standings:

Standings are used from the regular season to seed teams into playoffs. During the regular season, teams are awarded three (3) points for a win, one (1) point for a draw, and zero (0) points for a loss. Divisions with teams scheduled to play an uneven number of games (e.g. an odd-numbered-team division, where one or more teams play an additional game), points will be prorated.

In the event of a tie in points at the end of the regular season, the following method will be used to break the tie. If there is a multi-team tie (3 or more teams), proceed to the #2 tie breaker until the multi-team tie is broken. Once a team is eliminated from the tie-breaker, the process repeats until two teams remain, and then the process begins again.

1) Winner of head to head competition of the two teams tied. (Disregard if more than two teams are tied – proceed to #2)
2) Most wins
3) Goal Differential (maximum 4 per game)
4) Fewest number of goals allowed
5) Fewest Red and Yellow cards received
6) Most shutouts
7) Coin flip

Playoff Schedule:

  • Games will be played on Saturday, 10/26. Times and locations will be announced at a later date.
  • Matchups are determined immediately following the final game of the regular season (10/19)

Rules:

  • All rules from the regular season (playing time, goalkeeper rotation, etc.) will be enforced for the playoffs.
  • Additionally: any games ending in a tie will proceed directly to Kicks from the Mark (penalty kicks) to declare a winner. No overtime periods are played.
