Formations / Systems of Play

4v4 – U6 & U8
7v7 – U9 & U10
9v9 – U11 & U12
11v11 – U13 & up

Choosing a formation is based on these factors –

  • Strengths and capabilities of your team
  • Skill of your opponent
  • Objective for that particular game: attacking minded or defensive minded

Every opponent presents a different challenge. You cannot prepare for each game the same way. Certain teams match-up with you in a different way.

Using certain formations in the 7v7 and 9v9 game have a direct influence on when they progress to the 11v11 game. At the younger age groups, players should play multiple positions to give them a better understanding of the game.
