Nova Girls 14U 2004 Elite - FC Stars Fall Tournament Champions
After going undefeated (3-1, 3-2 and 3-0) during the weekend, the girls tied 2-2 during regular play, through OT, and won 5-4 on PKs to take home the championship at the FC Stars Labor Day tournament in Marlboro.
Blue skies and hot temperatures greeted the Nova Girls 1998 Elite team who travelled to Fredericksburg, Virginia this past weekend to compete in the Region 1 Championships. The team competed in this tournament after becoming the 2017 Massachusetts State Cup champions. The team won two of their three games and came in sixth in the U19/20 age group.
This was the second time the team had made it to the Region 1 Championship. The team also was the Massachusetts State Futsal Champions and attended the National Futsal Championship in Kansas in 2015. We offer congratulations to the team for their wonderful performances throughout their Nova Soccer career.
This was the last time that the team would compete together as a team as the majority of the players will now be heading off to college. We wish the girls well as they head off to college.

US Soccer has recently published player development initiatives which they feel will help develop all players to the best of their abilities.
One of the major components is a movement to small sided standards.
MAPLE already provides small sided structure at various younger age groups although the new initiatives will mean a change at certain ages to the number of players on the field.
US Soccer is suggesting that U9 and U10 players now play 7v7, U11 and U12 to play 9v9 and U13 and above to play 11 a side. The field dimensions have also been standardized to provide the correct space and the hope is to create players who are more confident and comfortable when in possession of the ball.
This fall MAPLE has decided to pilot 7v7 at the U9 age groups and collect feedback from coaches and clubs as we move towards the new format.
For spring 2016 U11 & U12 will move to 9v9. U12 11v11 will continue to be offered. U10 will remain at 8v8 for the spring and then move to 7v7 for fall 2016.
Roster sizes will remain the same.
This will impact the size of fields and nets required for each age group. At the moment US Soccer is still reviewing this issue as it will mean significant additional expense for both MAPLE and town programs, and it seems some flexibility will be permitted. For this spring the field and net sizes for U10-U12 will not change.
Starting in Fall 2016 MAPLE clubs would be permitted to use the same fields and nets for U10-U12 games if they had teams in multiple age groups, thus allowing us to continue to block games. Or, they could provide a smaller field for the U10 teams if they had only that age group or multiple U10 teams.
Nova Premier Soccer Club is looking for qualified head coaches to coach our boys and girls premier youth soccer teams. We are located in Rehoboth, MA (Southern MA near Rhode Island border). Our goal is for players to receive top-flight instruction, be challenged and grow to become successful soccer players in a family friendly atmosphere.
