FC Frederick would like to invite you to participate in ScrimmageFest XV in Frederick, MD. I hope you will consider including this unique event in your team’s Fall pre-season plans. On August 21st and 22nd we have divisions for Boys and Girls U9 through U12. U9-10 play 7v7, U11-12 play 8v8. The cost is $185. This includes referee fees.
We have been able to secure the use of the fields at Mt Saint Mary`s College, just 20 minutes north of Frederick, to expand our full sided age groups. This year, for the first time, we will include the U14 age group. As always, the U13s are here for their first time out, 11 v 11 experience. This is a great, no pressure way to find out about your new team. The cost for the full sided games is $225. This includes referee fees (center referee only).
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.
The playing day for each age group this time is:
Saturday August 21 -
all U10s at St Thomas More
all U12s at Ballenger Creek Park
Sunday August 22 -
all U9s at St Thomas More
all U11s Ballenger Creek park
All U13 and U14 games are at Mt Saint Mary`s University
Saturday August 28th - all U13s
Sunday August 29th - all U14s
***U13 Schedules have been revised***
