Mini Soccer U6-U9

Mini-Soccer is a Mid-Valley Soccer Club league where younger players are placed on smaller gender specific teams and play in small sided games. This format is recommended by the coaching staff of both US Soccer and Oregon Youth Soccer. It provides more opportunities for players to handle the ball in games, more individual attention from coaches who are working with smaller teams in training, and the small sided game leads to a stronger development of both individual and team skills and ultimately a greater love of the game.
