FC Frederick would like to invite you to participate in ScrimmageFest XVII, August 20-21 in Frederick, MD. I hope you will consider including this unique event in your team’s Fall pre-season plans. Divisions for Boys and Girls U9 through U14 are offered. U9-10 play 7v7, U11-12 play 8v8, U13-14 play 11v11.The cost is $185 for small sided play (U9 thru U12) and $225 for full sided play. This includes referee fees.
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.
In addition to the simplicity of the format for players, it is also our desire to make this an enjoyable event for you managers as well. There is no required check-in, no player passes, no rosters, no medical release (though you should have these for your players, I don’t need to see them). Just get here on time and play.
This has proven to be an increasingly popular pre-season event.
The playing day for each age group this time is:
Saturday August 20 - all U9s, all U11s, and all U13s
Sunday August 21 - all U10s, all U12s and all U14s
