About 5 v 5 Soccer

Our Spring and Fall soccer programs are played 5 v 5 (4 + goalkeeper). In smaller games, players are put in a position where agility, speed, and awareness are put to the test, resulting in constant attention and an incentive for faster growth as a player. The more focus a player has, and the more play with the ball a player receives, the sooner their development increases. Compared to a classic 11 v 11 game, 5 v 5 puts emphasis on small touches, which means that a player will be in constant movement with the ball, whether it’s passing or receiving.

5 v 5 soccer, played in the streets throughout the world, has grown to become an internationally recognized form of soccer, known for its fast-pace and highly fluid play. We’re excited to bring you this same worldly style to the fields of Marin, where our kids can be immersed in the game as they grow with their teammates!

Spring Soccer 2017 will be structured like the Winter Indoor Soccer League, with coaches entering teams, and players being able to register as confirmed team members or as unaffiliated players to be placed on teams.

We will have our special End of Season Celebration for all players and their families!

Coach/Team Members

A team consists of 8–9 players. We recommend that a team have no more than 9 players in order to assure adequate playing time for each team member. However, this is not a mandatory limit. Once a player has confirmed with the coach that they’ll be playing on the team, they may register as a member of the team by noting their coach’s name on the registration form. Coaches must submit a roster of their players and a team name.

We encourage parents to consider organizing a group of 8-9 players and entering as a team. We can add players to complete your team if you have a smaller group. A coach and/or team parent is required for each team. The time commitment is 1 to 2 hours per weekend game. No prior coaching experience is necessary. We provide training and clinics for parent volunteer coaches.
