FC Frederick would like to invite you to participate in ScrimmageFest VIII, March 17-18 2007 in Frederick, MD. I hope you will consider including this unique event in your team’s Spring pre-season plans. Divisions for Boys and Girls U9 through U12 are offered. U9-10 play 7v7, U11 play 8v8 and U12 play 11v11.
For those of you unfamiliar with ScrimmageFest, it is a single day of soccer for your team. You will play four different opponents in a shortened match format (35 minutes, switch ends about halfway through) with no scores or standings kept. This format removes the pressure and (perceived) need to win associated with most tournaments so as to advance to an extra game and/or Championship. You play all four anyway. This in turn gives coaches the latitude to try different formations, player combinations and substitution patterns they may not feel comfortable with in another format.
This has proven to be an increasingly popular pre-season event. We hosted over 130 teams last Spring and we have acquired additional fields to accept even more teams this time.
Saturday March 17th will have all the U9s and U11s playing.
Sunday March 18th will have all the U10s and U12s playing.
Registration closes about March 5th. Call after that. We may still have space at certain age groups.
