Welcome to U10 soccer.
U10 is when Merrimac Soccer begins to compete regionally.
Also, teams are no longer co-ed so there are U10 boys and U10 girls teams.
For those that are new to the U10 program, it is quite a step up from the U8's. Games are played in Merrimac, Amesbury, West Newbury, Groveland and Newburyport.
The games will have referee's (generally teenagers) and follow the large majority of the official soccer rules.
First year players will need to get a uniform. Merrimac uniforms are available for purchase from the Club. The uniforms consist of a yellow/green reversible jersey, black shorts and black socks. Please contact Eric Getz @ firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate purchasing a shirt or the U10 Director.
Each player will also need to wear shin guards. Soccer cleats are required. Please be aware that baseball cleats are not allowed (they have a cleat at the very front in the middle). Also - no jewelry of any kind is allowed.
Uniforms & Equipment
ALL children participating in the Merrimac Soccer Club program must have the following basic equipment in order to participate in practices and games:
Shin pads (must fit properly)
Soccer Socks (to fit over shin pads)
Soccer rubber cleats (not metal)
These items can by purchased at most local sporting goods stores such as The Soccer Shoppe in Georgetown or Dick’s Sporting Goods.
