Are you ready to join Season 16 – Summer 2017?!
Monday nights 7-10pm!
In order to accommodate our growing community, to compensate for limited field availability, and to increase our soccer ability, we will continue the league format of 5v5 for Season 16.
A year-long study was performed by Rick Fenoglio of Manchester Metropolitan University in England at the Manchester United Academy.

When comparing 4v4 to the 8v8 game he came up with the following findings.
– 135% – more passes
– 260% – more attempts on goal
– 225% – more 1 on 1 encounters
– 280% – more ‘tricks’ attempted
(To read more about Mr. Fenoglio’s findings, visit his website: Give Us Back Our Game )
We did a quick survey and 4v4 didn’t seem reasonable so we decided on 5v5 format.
Games start June 5th in Menlo Park on Mondays anytime between 7:00-10 pm.
