Important Changes to make note of:

Small Sided Play and Age Group Changes

VIT will follow the US Soccer and Indiana Soccer Mandates for small sided play and age group changes.  No exceptions will be made. 

  • Age Groups will use the newly established birth year format.  Example:  Players born in 2008 will be 14U (fourteen and under) in the fall of 2021.
  • Teams must play in the format for their age groups. 
    • 8U may not play up to 9U or 10U age 7 v 7 formats
    • 9U-10U teams MUST play 7 v 7.  They may not play up to 11U formats of 9 v 9
    • 11U-12U teams MUST play 9 v 9 and may not play up to the full sided game format.
  • Field & Goal Size
    • 7 v 7:  47x30 field with 6.5’x18.5’ goal
    • 9 v 9:  75x47 field with 6.5’x18.5’ goal
  • Heading the ball for players ages U12 and under.  US Soccer has mandated that heading be disallowed for these age groups.  If a player in the 10U-12U age groups heads the ball, a foul will be called and an indirect kick awarded.
