Games will be held on Sundays, schedule Click Here Please be at all games 30 minutes prior to the start time.
This team will participate in a U13 division of the Massachusetts Premier League (MAPLE) .
Like other U13 and Older teams, this group will be focused on implementing the skills they learned through the learning and development phases. Teams will be focused on learning the tactical side of the game, and learning to play in the club style of play, which is predicated on possession. Skill development will continue, but will not be the primary focus. Players will be expected to know a variety of skills that will help them implement game strategy set forth by the club.
At these age groups we will be focusing the teams on "learning to win" and playing time will be predicated on merit.
