6U, 7U , 8U

The goal of the HGRA’s 6U, 7U and 8U programs is to help young players build ball and team skills through playing ‘small sided’ games. These are 4v4 games on a small field and a special smaller goal. This allows for fast-paced games with lots of touches for each player. There are no goalies in these leagues. Instead each field is marked with a six foot arc in front of each goal which players from either team may not enter. If the ball comes to rest in the arc, it is treated as out of bounds and awarded as either a goal kick or a throw-in depending on what team touched it last. 

Each week, the players will participate in 30 minutes of professional coach led activities and games designed to develop the player in a fun, high energy environment.  There will be a 30 minute officiated game following the practice where the players can demonstrate their newly acquired skills.   The combined practice/game sessions start at either 6:00 or 7:15 pm and may change throughout the season.
 
Our new and improved format will maximize the players time on the field and give them access to some of the best coaching in the area to increase their success and enjoyment of the great sport of soccer!  Coaches in these leagues are parent volunteers.  We need 2 coaches for each team.  

6U through 8U tends to have the highest registration numbers in the HGRA Soccer program.  This means we need lots of volunteers.  If you have previous soccer knowledge or would like to learn, we can use your help.  We can only form teams if we have enough volunteers.  

We are excited to announce an expanded partnership with St. Paul Blackhawks Soccer to facilitate the curriculum and training for our 5U, 6U, 7U, and 8U leagues this summer!  Each week, the players will participate in 30 minutes of professional coach-led activities and games designed to develop the player in a fun, high energy environment.  There will be a 30-minute game following the practice where the players can demonstrate their newly acquired skills.  
 
Our new and improved format will maximize the players time on the field and give them access to some of the best coaching in the area to increase their success and enjoyment of the great sport of soccer!  We look forward to seeing you for a great summer of soccer at HGRA!
