Vikings is proud to announce we will be holding a 5v5 tournament on February 17th, hosted by Director of Coaching Tommy Alioto. Tommy has requested any parents and coaches attending to remain silent during these games. This "Silent Sunday" will allow players to coach themselves and communicate freely to take ownership of the game.
Age groups will have seperate boys and girls brackets. (Adjacent age groups may be combined if necessary for numbers.)
Kindergarten through 4th grade, 9:30 to 12:30
5th grade through 8th grade, 12:30 to 3:30
"Silent Sunday" means no sideline chatter or yelling!
All parents and spectators are asked to remain quiet during the games to ensure players can fully communicate and take control of the game themselves.
Repeated violations may end up in a free kick for the opposing team!!
Games will be played with each team using five players including one goalie. A regular soccer ball will be used with regular size nets but on a smaller field than regular outdoor soccer.
There will be no throw-ins, only kick-ins. In the case of a goal kick, the goalie will restart play with the ball in their hands.
There will be "open subsitutions", which means the game will not stop for substitutes. Instead, the active player must run off the field before the substitute enters. Substitutes must always enter at the half-way line.
Teams will earn points with each win (3 points) and tie (1 point). in the case of a tie of points at the end of all games, teams will compare goal differentials, and then total goals scored to decide a winner.
Our access to this field depends on your cooperation with us to help maintain the integrity of the field. Therefore, we ask everyone attending to observe the field's rule of not allowing food or pets on the field. Violators will be asked to leave the field immediately. We thank you for your cooperation!
