U6 Recreational Program

U6 Format Change 3 VS 3 (No goalkeeping)

In keeping with the trend and recommendations of both the US Youth Soccer Organization as well as the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association, Tyngsboro Youth Soccer has decided to adopt this small-sided 3V3 format (w/ no goalkeeper) at the U6 level.

We are implementing this change for one reason – “The small-sided environment is a developmentally appropriate environment for young soccer players. It’s a FUN environment that focuses on the player.”This is the opinion of the US Soccer National Staff Coaches, Every US Youth Soccer State Director of Coaching, as well as the US Youth Soccer Director of Coaching! If you should have any questions, comments or concerns regarding the format change feel free to contact the U6 Coordinator
(Listed under "contacts" on the this web site).

 

TYSA offers an in-town program for children ages 4 through 5 (U6).  Games are played in Tyngsboro against other Tyngsboro teams though there may be exceptions when extra games are needed. Registration for the fall program runs from May through August.  Registration for the Spring program runs from October through March.  Specific dates are posted on the TYSA website. 

 

  • Format is 3v3 play with no goalies as suggested by the US Youth Soccer Association (why_small_sided_games_8-121.PDF).  2 games played concurrently.
  • (4) 10 min quarters or (2) 20 min halves
  • Teams meet Saturdays for combination practice/game
  • The co-ed U6 program focuses on having fun while learning the basics: dribbling, passing, receiving, and shooting and of course good sportsmanship
