Seasons & Location 

Participants can either play in the USA of Indiana Pike Rec/Rec Plus Program or USA of Indiana Brownsburg/Avon Rec/Rec Plus Program.  Spring season is during April and May and early June.  Fall season is during September and October. Each season includes 8 games played on 6 weekends and 2 week nights, plus several coach led training sessions.   There are also optional age group training sessions provided by USA of Indiana Soccer Director and Lead Coaches for each age group.  Each player plays a minimum of one half of each game.  Scores, team and league standings are not kept, and all players receive a participation trophy or medal at the end of each season.  All coaches and volunteers complete a criminal back ground check and coaches complete a coaching certification course.

What is the Format?

US Youth Soccer, National Soccer Coaches Association of America, Indiana Soccer Association, and USA of Indiana believe Rec Soccer players learn best and have more fun playing small-sided game formats of 3 v 3 or 4 v 4.  It is widely accepted young players need to develop techniques before being taught tactics.  The best way to teach soccer skills and techniques is having children play soccer!  The format of play for Soccer Tots ends with 3 v 3 games.  The format of play for 5U and 6U is two 3 v 3 games at the same time on two fields.  The format of play for 7/8U is two 4 v 4 games at the same time on two fields.  The format of play for 12U is 8 v 8.   See the full USA of Indiana Recreational League Rules Play here.

Why no Goalies until 10U?

Sam Snow, U.S. Youth Soccer Coaching Director, had the following interaction with a coach in Florida not long ago:Sam, can you send me some good articles or a comment on why we should play without goalies at U-8? I am trying to influence a club to change to this format.
"The U-8 age group is still in an egocentric phase of psychological development, which tells us that we should allow these children to run and chase the ball, to be in the game – not waiting at the end of the field for the game to come to them. It is more important at this age that they chase the game. Children this age want to play with the toy (the ball) and they need to go to where the toy is to be fully engaged."
