Thank you for your participation with Saginaw Township Soccer. Since this may be your child’s first experience with soccer or any sort of team environment we thought we’d give you some basic info on the U7 program.
THE U7 GAME
Children will play on fields 13A, 13B, 13C, 14A, 14B, and 14C. The goals will be lettered so you know which mini field you’re on. Field size is 30x50 with appropriate sized goals and penalty areas.
The store will be open prior to the start of the season. Store hours are Monday –Friday from 5-7pm. Cleats are not necessary but encouraged, however sneakers or a good athletic shoes may be worn.
Jewelry must be removed before any player is allowed to train or compete. There are no exceptions to this policy, as required by the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association.
Hicks Studio is our partner that provides individual & team soccer pictures for STSA. Dates and package info will be given to the coaches or team parent.
A proper eating program is just as important to an athlete’s success as is a training program. Athletes are like finely tuned cars that require high quality fuel to achieve optimal performance. Please consider the following year round nutritional principles to help your athlete:
Stay hydrated. Your body is more than 50% water and your muscles depend on water to function properly.
BOARD MEMBERS ARE PRESENT
Whenever recreational games are held at the complex, there will be one or two Board Members here. Board members will be visible by wearing GREEN SHIRTS or JACKETS. Please seek us out if you have questions, concerns, or comments. We are here to help make the soccer experience fun and enjoyable for everyone. We hope this information proves helpful!

COACH/ PARENT HELPERS
Interested in coaching? STSA is always looking for volunteers who are willing to coach or provide assistance to the coach. At this age level the concentration is on the individual player development and getting players comfortable with the ball.
If coaches are in need of ideas, we are happy to help you find activities specifically designed for your age group.
If interested in coaching, please contact our recreation director, Donny McCloskey, at firstname.lastname@example.org
