House 7U-10U

House League - 7U-10U
Players born 2013-2016

Great Falls Reston Soccer’s House program for 7U-10U players is an 8-week program that is coached by parents and volunteers. Beginning at 7U, girls have the option of playing with the boys or playing in a “girls only” program. The 7U-10U program includes two 1-hour sessions every week. This typically consists of a team practice and a game on either Saturday morning (generally between 8 am and noon) or Sunday afternoon (generally between 12-6 pm). These sessions are conducted by volunteer parents and coaches.



At 7U, the field is expanded (from 6U) and continue a 4v4 format. Throw-ins, goal kicks, and corner kicks are introduced at 8U. By 9U, our teams are playing on a much larger field, with traditional goals, goalies, a 7v7 format, and referees applying the laws of the game. Teamwork, tactics, positions, and passing concepts becoming more and more prominent as the players mature and the field size expands. Nevertheless, our primary focus is, and should be, on the development of technical skills and player creativity.

A uniform consisting of a jersey, shorts and socks is included in the registration fee and will be handed out at the first session. Players will need to wear sneakers or cleats (recommended), shin guards, and their GFR uniform to games. Comfortable athletic attire can be worn for practices. Players should bring a ball (Size 4) and water to all sessions.

House Academy

To supplement the coaching offered by our volunteers, Great Falls Reston Soccer offers "Academy” training during the week where all House players (6U-10U) receive additional coaching from GFRSC’s professional trainers with a focus on developing technical soccer skills.  The Academy program is recommended for all House players. 

Academy is a 7-week training program offered on Tuesdays in South Reston or on Wednesdays in North Reston/Great Falls. There will be changes for Academy this Spring. 
The session will split age groups up, with the first hour for 6U-7U players and the second hour for 8U-10U players. This will mean a smaller player to coach ratio, allowing for more instruction and individual attention for each player. 

Registration is required
to participate.

Players should wear comfortable athletic clothing, sneakers or cleats (recommended), shin guards and bring a ball (size 4) and water to each session.

Guidelines for 7U-8U Matches:

1.  The games will consist of two 20 minute halves with a 5 minute halftime. The coaches should be timing the games. This timing allows for both teams to run a warm-up prior to the start of the game. Please try to be on time so each player can be a part of the warm-up and pre-game talk from their coach. Coaches should use their pop-up (pugg) goals for the games. A size 4 soccer ball should be used.

2.  These age groups play games with 4 on a side, and two fields playing at the same time. Players should be given equal playing time and not be limited to playing in a certain position. There are NO goalies at this age. One group of one team should switch fields at halftime, so the players can play against others.

3.  These age groups will play with kick-ins, goal kicks, and corner kicks. Coaches can be on the field and should cooperate as refs and coaches. 

4.   There should be no one standing behind the goal line. Unless a coach has asked you to chase balls back there.

5.  All players should be wearing their team jersey, proper footwear (soccer cleats or athletic shoes), and shin guards that are covered by socks. No jewelry should be worn during a game. You are not allowed to use bandaids to cover earrings.

6.  No food on the fields.

7.  We ask that all spectators allow the coaches to coach. Please cheer for the team in a positive manner. 




Guidelines for 9U-10U Matches:

1.  Players should be at the field at least 20 min prior to kick-off. This will allow for proper warm up and pre-game check-in by the referee. The game will consist of two 25-minute halves, with a 5 minute half-time. The referee will track the game time.

2.  These age groups play with 7 on a side, with one player being a goalie. Games can start with 6 players. If more players come, they may be substituted in at proper times signaled by the referee (throw-in, goal kick, after a goal is scored). All players should be given equal playing time and not limited to certain positions as best as possible. A size 4 soccer ball should be used.

3.  Coaches, players and spectators must stand a few yards back from the sidelines. Parents and spectators should sit on the opposite side of the field from the teams. We ask that spectators cheer in a positive manner.

4.  There should be no one standing behind the goal line. You may go behind the goal if you are going to grab a soccer ball to get it back in play.

5.  The referee will call offside and incorrect throw-ins will be a turnover.

6.  All players should be wearing their team jersey, proper footwear (soccer cleats or athletic shoes), and shin guards that are covered by socks. No jewelry should be worn during a game. You are not allowed to use bandaids to cover earrings.

7. In case of an injury, the referee will assess the situation and then bring on the coach if necessary. A parent should not run onto the field. If necessary, the coach should call the parent over to the sideline after removing the injured player from the field.

8.  No food on the fields.
