PAGS 9v9 Standards (U11 and U12)

PAGS 9v9 Standards (U11 and U12)

PAGS has adopted the US Soccer Federation 9v9 standards for U11 and U12 play. The PAGS 9v9 Standards can be found HERE.  These standards necessitate several changes to the PAGS By-Laws and Playing Rules.  

PAGS is recommending that all clubs implement the 50% playing time requirement this season rather than waiting until 2017-2018, however this is up to individual clubs.  Monitoring of a playing time requirement is the responsibility of the individual club.  

PAGS WILL NOT implement not publishing scores and standings for the U11 and U12 age groups this year.  However, as of now, this will be mandatory in 2017-2018  

There are completely new field dimensions and marking requirements in these standards.  These Field Dimensions and Marking Requirements are covered in detail in a separate document which can be found on the PAGS home page and in the PAGS 2016-2017 Playing Rules.

All parties should take the time to familiarize themselves with the PAGS 9v9 standards, the field dimensions and marking requirements, and the PAGS Playing Rules prior to the season.
