Why are 8u friendlies or select teams not allowed??

What's on your mind?

by Jojo2u » Wed Jan 08, 2020 5:39 pm

As I look for friendlies or tournaments for my daughters 14u team and see an infinite number posted for 10u thru 16u I wondered if there is anything out there for younger players. My younger DD plays 8u in a pretty competitive league and on her team is a lot of talent is there any friendlies out there to get more work in?

Most 8u's are either still playing soccer in the fall or a short fall ball season. Winter is for family and getting ready for school. Actually most leagues with 8u players are close to evaluations in January then they form teams.

You could get with the local league and organize winter workouts or maybe start a shake the rust workout before evals.

or hopefully you are a 2nd year 8u team and might be able to pass as a 10u team.. just stay away from the good 10u team and you might be okay

Keep the kid in rec ball until she is at least an older 12U eligible player and forget about anything really competitive until that age. Let her be a kid. JMO

At 8 most are playing rec still where i believe they belong. But u can probably find a weaker 10u friendly n get them into it. Tell the person running the games to schedule you with the weaker teams.
No fun getting destroyed or hurt by an older team.

Yeah because that's what we need when people are genuinely asking for input.

You're invited to my new group 'So Cal Select Managers' on GroupMe. Click here to join: https://groupme.com/join_group/48062879/7tP2xzCt


Have your coach join this group me of select managers. Pretty sure there is a rule not allowing 8u teams to play select. But there is no rule from playing up in 10’s.
