Fall Soccer Program

Our fall program runs from August through November. This is our core program. With the exception of our upper divisions (14U and 18U) all games are played at Nordhoff High School. Our program is divided up by gender and age.

Grasshoppers - Soccer is for people of all ages – even the little ones!  We developed our Grasshoppers program is for four-year-olds. In our Grasshoppers program, children get to play soccer in an age-specific environment, and you, the parents, get to participate with them. 

6U - (For ages 5 and 6)
Our 6U program begins teaching our development curriculum in a safe, family friendly setting. There are no goal keepers and no scores are kept. The game is played 4v4 to maximize touches on the ball. There are no weekly practice sessions in this division. Rather we have our coaches run a short practice and game on Saturday mornings.

8U  - (For ages 7 and 8)
Our 8U program builds upon our previous programs. Field size gets a bit larger and new techniques are introduced. Our coaches are age appropriately trained for the division they are coaching. There are no goal keepers and no scores are kept. The game is played 4v4 to maximize touches on the ball. It is recommended that teams have a single practice session each week, not to exceed an hour. Volunteer referees from each team manage the games on Saturdays.

10U - (For ages 9 and 10)
Although not technically a competitive division, it is at this level that we introduce goal keeping. Games are played 7v7 to maximize touches on the ball. We also introduce the Build Out Line, which helps coaches and players develop a possession based approach to soccer.

12U - (For ages 11 and 12)
At 12U, our players and coaches have learned to become proficient in performing and coaching the basics. This division is that last division that makes use of small sided games. We play 9v9 in this division. The build out line is removed, but goalie punts and headers are not allowed. This ensures our players are continuing to develop a possession based approach to soccer. 

14U - (For ages 13 and 14)
This division marks the first time in our program where our coaches and players are playing with full size teams on full size fields. We play 11v11 and the previous division rules regarding build out lines, goalie punts, and heading the ball are no longer enforced. This is the beautiful game as it was meant to be played. Our upper division teams play in a league with surrounding regions that include Santa Paula, Carpiteria, Filmore, Oxnard, and Ventura.

18U - (For ages 16, 17, and 18)
Geared for high school players. Our 18U division still follows our six philosophies which ensures lots of playing time for everyone on the team. As in our 14U program, our 18U teams will travel to surrounding regions to play their games.
