Vancouver United FC is offering a new ‘Intro to 8v8' camp just for incoming U11 and U12 Div 3 players to get them used to playing 8v8 soccer.
It will be an entirely new game format for the U11’s and, while the U12’s have already played a year of 8 a side, it is a good refresher for them. Our staff will cover rule changes (offside, retreat line, goal kicks, etc.) as well as basic concepts around how to play on fields that are twice the size of what we use at U10. There will be technical work around foundation skills as well as a lot of game play and discussion around so players can hit the ground running when the season starts in September.
Depending on registration numbers, U11’s and U12’s may be mixed together. Same for boys and girls.
