G2 soccer is a non-pressure, non-results orientated, instructional form of soccer whose purpose is to provide a FUN atmosphere and a positive playing experience for the children participating. All participants win when Coaches, Parents, Referees, and Players enjoy the game. 

  • Sunday sessions consist of approximately 20 minutes of practice and 55 minutes of an intra-league game. 
  • All players shall receive equal playing time. 
  • Games are approximately 2 25 minute halves with a 5 minute break between halves.
