U8 - Second Grade
Saturday 6v6 (including goalies) games are played at Town Forest Field in Merrimac each Saturday between 9:00 am and 11:00 am. Typically, the fall season starts in September and the spring season starts in April.
The hour-long Saturday sessions are divided in half with 1/2 hour devoted to practice activities and the other 1/2 hour reserved for 6 v 6 matches. At this level larger nets, goalies, and more complex game rules such as throw-ins and goal kicks are introduced.
