At least two volunteer coaches will be needed for each team as we will utilize small-sided games on adjacent
fields. The 6 & under teams will play two games of 3 players vs 3 players on adjacent fields. The 8 & under
teams will play one game of 6 players vs 6 players.

 

There will be a coaches meeting for all 6 & under coaches from 5:30 – 6:30 pm on August 18 at the
Clemson Parks & Recreation office at Nettles Park at which time the coaches will select players onto teams.
The 8 & under coaches will select players on August 19 after player evaluations.

 

Why Small-Sided Soccer?
The United States Soccer Federation has implemented the program across the country with great success.
The major reasons are:
• There are more opportunities to defend, to pass, to score.
• Short duration of high-intensity play.
• More individual time with a coach; easier to coach fewer players.
Teams are co-ed with an emphasis on fun, participation, and skill development.
• $30 Clemson/Central residents (pay city taxes)
$45 Non-residents
• Registration fee includes jersey, shorts, & individual medals.
• Players must provide their own shin guards.
The 6 & under and 8 & under divisions will start on August 25 with practices & games on Mondays - Thursdays
(dependent on number of teams) from 5:30 – 6:30 pm at Nettles Park with a limited number of away games
at Pendleton Recreation. The season will conclude on October 9.
8 & Under Evaluations: Tuesday, August 19th at Nettles Park
5:30 – 6:00 A – K 6:00 -- 6:30 L – Z
