Maryland, DC & Delaware Futures Program

EDP Futures - Maryland, DC & Delaware 

Maryland Futures 5v5 League Fall 2020

8U-10U 5v5 League with 7v7 option

 

Ages and Formats:

8U-10U Boys & Girls: 5v5

9U-10U Boys & Girls: Optional 7v7

The program is designed to maximize player development.  The small sided games will allow a player to just play and own the game.  Players receive more touches in a smaller space, more goals are scored and players are completely engaged in the game at all times. 

Teams will be bracketed based off of geography, competitiveness, and by like-minded clubs. Teams will play the other teams in their division in a league format. EDP Soccer will provide a 7v7 option for any interested 9U and 10U teams.

  • The league is open to boys and girls teams (Co-Ed teams will play in the boys bracket). 
  • Each 5v5 team will play 4 field players plus a keeper with unlimited substitutions.
  • No final scores or results will be kept. 
  • A size 3 soccer ball should be used for all 8U games and a size 4 for all 9U and 10U games. 

Teams will be grouped together on a number of factors, and will rotate to play different opponents depending on age group. These games are designed to:

  • Provide accelerated player development in an enjoyable atmosphere
  • Deliver education of the game while allowing the players to make mistakes 
  • Allow players to participate in a level of soccer where they can become comfortable with the game
 
Game Lengths:
  • 8U-10U: 5v5 game lengths will be 40 minutes (20 minute halves).
  • 9U and 10U: 7v7 game lengths will be 50 minutes (25 minute halves).
