U7/U8 In-House Program

This program runs in the spring from late-March to early June and in the fall from mid-August to late October. U8 In-House introduces children to the game. It is the first level within NASC in which teams practice one night per week in addition to game play on Saturdays. This is also the first age group where the girls' and boys' leagues are split. Your child will be with the same team of 10-12 players for the entire season.

Practice sessions will incorporate skill development activities and small-sided games. Each session will be one hour long. The field location and time schedule changes from season to season.  However, practices are held one weeknight per week with a start time typically between 5:30 and 6:30. The night of the week is selected by the head coach after rosters are created. The day of the week will not be determined until a week or two before the start of the season.

Games are always on Saturdays, usually scheduled in the morning and early afternoon. Games consist of four 12-minute quarters. Small-sided 4v4 games promote many touches on the ball for players. There are no goalkeepers in the small-sided games. These games provide the opportunity for the children to use the skills they learned during the training session earlier in the week. At U8, passing and team play are introduced.  Referees are used as part of the game. The coaches are on the sideline giving players instructions.


Equipment needed:

  • A size 3 soccer ball

Volunteers Needed! 

NASC is an entirely volunteer run organization. For each team, we need a minimum of 2 volunteer coaches to help with the drills and run the games. If you have ever considered coaching, now is a great time to start even if you have never played before! You can learn the game along with your child, and potentially continue as your child moves into older age groups. You’re going to be at the field anyway, so you might as well join in the fun! Look for the volunteer section as you register your child.
