PRACTICE: Intramural teams will practice before their games. Practice is crucial for players to improve their skill.

GAMES:

The intramural games are a combination of competition and instruction. The 4&5 age division is basically introducing the players to the game and letting them play. Games will be played in quarters or halves.No goal keepers with four or five players per team on the field. The 6&7 division will introduce the use of goalkeepers and play 5 v 5 and will learn the basics of the game. The 8&9 division will have goalkeepers and at least 6 v 6. These players will start to learn some strategy.
