U8-U11 Program

The McLean Youth Soccer U8-U11 program offers a FUN, friendly, non-results oriented team structured program focusing on age-appropriate skill development. At U11, the program introduces friendly competition between teams with an end of season "playoff" tournament.

MYS Professional Technical Staff visit games to offer enhanced coaching education/support for volunteer/parent coaches in the form of "help on request" during games.

  • U8-U11 teams have EIGHT practices and EIGHT games per season (subject to weather conditions).

U8 Format:

  • Teams practice for 60 minutes once per week with their volunteer/parent coach.
  • On Saturdays, two MYS teams play two side-by-side games using a continuous play model that maximizes touches on the ball.

U9-U11 Format:

  • Teams practice for 60 minutes once per week with their volunteer/parent coach.
  • On Saturdays, each team plays one game against another MYS team in their age group.

For Spring 2021 U11 teams will play in a regional league against teams in the Northern VA area.
