Our U9 tournament will be here before you know it. This season’s U9 tournament will take place at Oct 26th for our five U9 teams. It will be a double elimination tournament and will start at 9am. We will only be playing 15 minute halves with a 5 min halftime, opposed to our current 25 minute halves, so the games will be faster. We will try to give a 10-15 minute break between games so players have a chance to rest between any back to back games.
Some key takeaways:
- 1st Place team will receive a special medal. All other teams will receive a more generic medal.
- I’m working on getting a food truck here again this season. No luck at this point.
- I’m currently working on different options for games being reffed by someone other than the coaches of the teams playing. One will probably be me, but I will be looking for another.
- If Oct 26th gets rained out, we’ll not be making it up as our lease of the fields ends the end of October.
This should be a very enjoyable morning for our U9 players and families. We received great feedback from the previous two season’s tournament and we hope to have the same great experience.
A morning schedule and bracket will be sent out closer to tournament day.
