Clarification on Developmental Play

Developmental coaches, please note that all U5/U6 to U9/U10 teams play with a goalie, and should play corner kicks and throw-ins, as noted in the 2012/2013 Coaches Handbook (PDF). (In some previous years our youngest players played with no goalie and did not play corner kicks.) Apologies for any confusion.

Recommended numbers a side can be found in the handbook as well – numbers can be adjusted slightly depending on the number of players away, number of subs available etc.
