Our youngest players ages four and five, the Munchkins division is about structured play and familiarity with the ball and field. Organized into teams of eight to ten players, with new parent coaches and assistant coaches, the Munchkins Division plays on Saturday mornings at the Caven point Sports Complex in ninety minute sessions. A professional trainer from Challenger Sports conducts fun, age appropriate soccer activities to teach the players (and new coaches) about the game and control of the ball, and then the teams play matches of four versus four with no goalies. Pugg pop-up goals are used in this division with cones to line out the basic square of the game. A size three soccer ball is used. Emphasis is on fun play with the ball. Players are provided a uniform and are insured by JCSA. Parents are expected to provide shin guards, soccer cleats and water for every session. We recommend that every player have their own ball, but coaches will provide them at training and matches.
