WHY IS 5V5 THE SUPERIOR LEAGUE FORMAT FOR PLAYER DEVELOPMENT?

  • Accepted worldwide as the most effective game for developing youth players.
  • The national youth game of Brazil, credited with creating the highest number of international superstars from one country.
  • Fast becoming the format of choice in many US states, now mandated into the national academy program by the US Soccer Federation.
  • Provides over 300% more touches, shots, passing combinations, and one on one confrontations compared to 8V8 format.
  • Allows for better tactical development. Fewer players on the field allows players to track teammates and opponents, allowing for better awareness of time and space.

5V5 develops the brain, accelerates technical and tactical development, allows coaches to actually mentor their young players, and it’s just more fun. Why would you play anything else?

Frequently Asked Questions

How long are tournaments at the Coliseum?

The average tournament runs 3-4 hours. We have found that most teams don’t enjoy rest times in tournaments extended past the sufficient amount needed to recover and feel energized for their next game. Our staff works very hard to efficiently structure tournaments in a way that provides the most enjoyable and developmentally sound experience.

What time will my team play in their tournament?

Official tournament schedules will be emailed to you one week before the tournament. As a guideline, we are typically open for tournament play on the weekends from 8:00 am or 9:00 am into the evening. The youngest age groups usually start in the early part of the day, and start times for tournaments advance progressively with age. There may be exceptions at times to this structure.

I want to register two teams in the same tournament and age bracket, but GotSoccer doesn't let me?

In order to register two separate teams (even if the teams are your outdoor team split into two) in the same tournament, you need to register them with two separate accounts. If you currently only have one GotSoccer account, you would need to create a new account to register the second team.

Are your tournaments flighted?

We are proud to say that our arena attracts more teams every weekend in each age group than any other venue in the Northeast Region. This gives us an opportunity to better flight brackets and give teams a competitive experience, although flighting may not occur in every bracket on a given weekend.

What is the appropriate type of shoes for players to wear during games?

Players must wear soccer turf shoes or sneakers. Cleats are not allowed.

Can we purchase food and drinks at the Soccer Coliseum?

Yes, we have a fully staffed concession stand where we serve food, beverages, and snacks with healthy choices.

Is there WiFi at the Soccer Coliseum?

Yes, we provide free WiFi for everybody at our arena.
