Formats of Play

U8 Hawks

U8 is our beginner program and introduces a single referee.  Games are played in four 12-minute quarters.  Format is 6v6 with "goalies" (no punting).  Throw-ins, corner kicks, and goal kicks are all observed.  Opposing players clear to half for goal kicks.  Referees are expected to provide guidance to players in this low-pressure environment to help them learn the fundamentals of the sport.  Scores are not reported.  Size 3 ball.

U15 & U18 Hawks

U15 & U18 continue with a center referee and 2 ARs.  Games are played in two 45-minute halves.  Format is 11v11 with goalies.  All rules of the game apply.  Scores are reported by coaches.  Referees are responsible for reporting any cautions (yellow cards) or send-offs (red cards), as these age groups are more physical in nature of play.  Size 5 ball.

U10 Hawks

U10 is the next step in our player evolution.  Games are run by a single referee, but ARs may be added as a training opportunity for new referees.  Games are played in two 25-minute halves.  Format is 7v7 with goalies.  Opposing players clear to build out line for goal kicks.  No offsides.  All other rules apply.  Scores are reported by coaches.  Referees are responsible for reporting any send-offs (red cards).  Size 4 ball.

U12 Hawks

U12 introduces 2 ARs to accompany the center referee.  Games are played in two 30-minute halves.  Format is 9v9 with goalies.  Offsides will be called and all other rules apply.  Scores are reported by coaches.  Referees are responsible for reporting any send-offs (red cards).  Size 4 ball.
