FREE COMMUNITY EVENT
The Victoria Youth Soccer Organization would like to welcome the community to the VYSO Epic Soccer Day!
Whether you are already a huge soccer fan, or just curious about soccer and want to give it a try, you will have fun at this event!
We ask that everyone preregister their child to attend this event so that we can plan for the ages and number of kids that will be there. We will have paper registrations on site in case you forget to preregister.
Soccer Activity Stations
We will have soccer activity stations set up with various skills and drills. Kids that are interested in playing soccer can try out all the activity stations. Kids that have already played soccer will also enjoy these skills and drills and can hone their talent.
These activity stations will be open 10:00 AM — 4:00 PM. They are FREE and available to all children age 3–18.
2v2 Soccer Games: Updated 8/17
We will be holding several 2v2 Soccer Game Sessions! These mini game sessions are FREE and available to all children age 5–18.
2v2 Session Details
- one-hour long sessions
- four mini games per session
- 5-minute halves with 1-minute halftime
- two players per team
- each team plays all four mini games in the session
- at the end of each mini game, one team from each field will rotate to the next field
We encourage those that want to participate in the 2v2 Soccer Games to register in advance. This will guarantee a spot on a team for one of the sessions. Players must be registered by Tuesday, August 16, to have a guaranteed spot. *Please note, this is a separate registration from the registration for the whole event.*
Same Team as a Friend
When you register, you can request for your child to be placed on a team with his/her friend.
Players that do not request a specific player will be randomly assigned a teammate.
Players will be grouped by age into their session time based on the number of players that register.
- 10:00 AM boys and girls born in 2009–2011
- 11:30 AM boys and girls born in 2012–2014
- 1:00 PM boys and girls born in 2004–2008
- 2:00 PM boys and girls born in 2015–2018
Registration is still open. On site registration will be accepted if there are spots open.
Game Rules and Other Information
- fields are 18 yards long by 12 yards wide
- goals are 4 feet x 6 feet
- cones will mark corners and attacking third of field
- half of the players will wear pinnies (scrimmage vests)
- 5-minute halves with 1-minute halftime for players to get water
- players can only score in the attacking third of the field
- kick-ins when the ball goes out
- When a player scores a goal, he/she must run around his/her own goal before rejoining play. His/her teammate must return to mid-field. The defensive players get the ball out of the goal and dribble it back into play.
- no coaching, just cheering and encouragement
- At the end of each game, the players wearing pinnies will rotate to the next field.
We will need several volunteers throughout the day so that we can provide these activities to the kids.
For those that need to perform service hours for a school, club, or organization, come out to help us. We will signoff on hours worked for this event.
Please check out our volunteer opportunities and sign up to help provide an Epic Day to the kids in the community!
