Formats for Division Play

We want our House League players to have fun playing soccer in real team and game settings.  But we also want our players to have the opportunity to develop their soccer skills at an early age.  As such, each division has slightly different formats for play.  In the lower age divisions, we have scheduled formal practices into the game schedule to make sure that the players receive some opportunity for skill development.  The lower age divisions also have less field players which give the players more opportunity for touches on the ball during games.  The specific formats for each division are given here below:
