MACON SOCCER CLUB

Week 6 - April 3rd

Easter Dutch Tournament

Girls will play at 1pm/Boys will play at 3pm

Each player will have a series of short 6 minutes games (approximately 6 games). Players get 2 points if their team wins, 1 point for a tie, and 0 points for a loss. At the end of each game, players will report their score and be reassigned to a different team. At the end of all 6 games, the player with the most cumulative points wins the tournament. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each division, as well as costume prizes!!! We will have a combined U9/U10 division and a combined U11/U12 Division.

Will there be coaches? No, there is no coaching in a Dutch style tournament. This is for the kids to have fun while learning to organize and communicate among themselves.

If players are constantly changing teams, what jersey should they wear? Players are encourage to wear costumes or dress with non-matching outfits. Each player will be given their own training vest for the day. Teams will be divided by vest, or no-vest (costume)
