The Team

Our U12 teams consist of a minimum of 11 players up to a maximum of 16 players. Wherever possible we will place friends together in the same team. If your son / daughter wishes to play with their friends please let us know as soon as possible. 

The team will require a team coach and a team manager. If you are interested in helping out with either of these roles, please let us know. 

The coach’s role involves coaching the team on training nights and running the team on game day. 

The managers role involves communication to the rest of the team for game times, training sessions, cancelled games / training due to weather and preparation / actioning the team sheets 

Game Day

On game day the teams will consist of 11 players (including a goalkeeper) on the field at any one time. Games are played with 2 x  25 minute halves. The Under 12 players play with a size 4 ball. They play on a full size field with full size goals. 

Offside rules are played from U12’s onwards

The coach will be responsible for the pre-game warm up.

The manager of the team will be responsible to get the team sheets to the refs 15 minutes before kick off.
