What to Expect in 7U (1st gr), 8U (2nd gr), and 10U (3rd/4th gr)

Volunteer Parent Coaches are Vital

7U (1st gr), 8U (2nd gr), 10U (3rd/4th gr) teams are led by volunteer parent coaches. Parents from the collective of each age group and division need to volunteer. The number of teams that can be formed depends on the number of parents that volunteer to be coaches. This involvement is critical to the players' experience.

Once coaches are recruited, the volunteer division coordinator for each division can form teams, assign players to teams, and create the Saturday practice and Sunday game schedule.

Saturday Practices

7U, 8U, and U10 players have a team practice every Saturday for 1 hour on one of our local fields. The coaches determine the practice time at the beginning of the season, and it remains at the same time for the entire season. Coaches lead the players in various fun drills that teach specific skills. There are often small-sided scrimmages. Parents are expected to stay (not a drop off) to support their children and help them learn and participate.

Sunday Games

7U, 8U, and U10 players have games on Sundays. With warm ups, and water breaks during the games, count on one hour. The games are generally between 11:00 and 6:00 pm and are held on one of our local fields.

7U, 8U, and 10U teams play other local Rivertowns AYSO teams that are in the same age/gender group. The division coordinator makes the game schedule at the beginning of the season and distributes it to coaches, who distribute it to the soccer families.

However, a 10U division may choose to participate in the inter-regional league -- those teams play against other Westchester AYSO teams. They have half of their games "away" -- meaning four games per season would be in another town. The games are generally between 11:00 and 6:00 pm.  Once the inter-regional schedule is final, the master scheduler posts it, which allows you to see it Team Central, when you log in to your family account at this web site ayso324.com.
