Premier League will will include 1st and 2nd as well as any 3rd graders who prefer to play in smaller sided games (4v4) with the 45 minute practice before the 45 minute games on Saturdays.
Premier League 4v4 rules :
The game is for the players, and we feel that this format encourages each player to touch the ball a lot, learn the game of soccer and have fun! Please help out on the field, you do not need to be a soccer player to help coach the team!
