Registration is still open for Duxbury Youth Soccer's Mini-Soccer. The program is fun, healthy, team-based and instructional, and is designed with young kids in mind. Mini-Soccer is for players in the following age groups:

Children born between 8/1/2001-7/31/2003 will play in the "Under-6" age group

Children born between 8/1/1999-7/31/2001 will play in the "Under-8" age group{sidebar id=4}

The hour-long sessions focus on fun first, and are action packed with a lot of ball touches, no standing around, and no lines. Kids will enjoy playing with friends and meeting new ones in these well-organized sessions. The low or no pressure format includes high participation exercises and skill development, followed by fun match play (Under-6 play informal matches; Under-8 play matches against other teams on larger fields and goals).{sidebar id=1}

Parents are welcome to assist with the organization of the session and help with coaching if they like. Instruction will be available for parents who are interested.

The season runs on seven weekends, with hour-long sessions taking place on Sunday afternoons during April and May. The "Under-6" group plays at noon, while "Under-8" plays at 1:15pm. All games are at the Coppens Field Complex at Chandler School.

Some openings remain for the upcoming season. Although the discounted registration deadline has passed, late registrations are still being accepted for these age groups.
