Team:
Team size averages 12-14 players per team.

The Game:
Mites Division plays on a smaller soccer field. The games are played with teams of 7 vs. 7. Six field players and a goalie.

This optimizes the amount of ball 'touches' each player gets. It is designed to familiarize players with the game of soccer, and teambuilding. Each quarter is 15 minutes. And coaches should ensure players will get equal playing time.

All game will be played at Kennedy Park beginning fall 2017. The club has built 5 new fields that will be using the new 7v7 rule - use of the build out-line.
