These events are held in December for Boys and Girls age groups: U12-U13. These are two day events, played on Saturday and Sunday.
Why choose Small-Sided Friendlies?
These event are created for the purpose of player development in order to maximize touches per player. We feel during the winter these age should focus less on 11v11 tactics and more on technical development under pressure. We found that during the 11v11 events players received less time on the ball and was not beneficial for some age groups. These events will place players in competitive situations that will insure an environment to help improve players by allowing them to play more and sit less. All teams play games against competition from all over the Midwest. We try to ensure that we match up teams based on level of play, location of the teams (so they are not playing teams from the same state) and time travel.
These events are of high demand so it is strongly suggested for teams to not wait to register.
