U7-U8, 4 V 4 Format

Our Club plays our U8 age groups as 4 v 4 games with Harrah Soccer.  This means we form our teams with a maximum roster of 8 players per team.

Below are a few coaching lesson plans from the US Youth Soccer National Youth Certificate Course that you may find helpful.  Go into practice with a plan – but remain flexible.

We suggest all U6/U8 coaches take the 4 V 4 grassroots course offered by US Soccer. All courses can be accessed through the Digital Coaching Center by clicking here.  This link will take you to the schedule for 4 V 4 in-person classes in Oklahoma, as well as some online courses. The Digital Coaching Center also has some great resources for coaches at all levels. Check back often – more courses are added throughout the year.
