9 vs. 9 Soccer
In 5th-6th grade, teams make a transition to a larger field and play 9 vs. 9 soccer. Each team plays with 8 field players and a goalie. This system is designed to ensure young players have the opportunity to have more touches on the ball and develop a better understanding of the game.
Teams may play some games at locations outside of Eugene/Springfield. We sometimes have teams in our leagues from as far away as Bend/Redmond, Coos Bay/North Bend, Newport, etc.
The season consists of 8 games. Teams are formed by grade, gender, and school area. Players will receive a KIDSPORTS jersey.
