At OUFC, we standardize small-sided games.
These changes are aimed to align the whole country in a consistent approach by providing age-appropriate environments for long-term player development. This will apply to all age groups beginning at U5.
U5-U7: 4v4 - No offside, no goalkeeper. 30x20 yards field.
U8-U10: 7v7 - With goalkeeper and offside rule in place.
U11-U12: 9v9 - Field size approximately 1/2 size of full 11v11 field. The final transition before 11v11 play.
U13+: 11v11 - Full field.
Our Premier Program is divided into distinct phases:
• U5-U7: Junior Development Academy
• U8-U10: Development Academy
• U11-U14: Junior Academy & Junior Elite Academy
• U15-U19: Academy & Elite Academy
The Premier Program is broken into OUFC North and OUFC South based on geographical location, which provides our players and families convenient training locations.
