Game Format

The game is played on a small field in a 3 vs. 3 formats with no goalkeeper. Two 20 minute games are played at the same time with substitutions occurring every five minutes. There is no halftime break and the clock does not stop for substitution. At the end of the first half there is a short break, and then the away team switches sides and another 20-minute game is played.

Team Formation

The teams are formed with the intent of allowing the children to play with their friends and other children from their school. There are normally 8 players on each team. Please place special requests on the registration form. We try very hard to meet all requests.
