Updated Wednesday August 31, 2016 by Concetta Slaney.



Manhasset Soccer Club’s intramural program is designed for players in U7 (2010), U8 (2009), U9 (2007)-Fall only, based on minimum registrants. While building upon the social and technical aspects learned in the Little Chiefs, the program continues to reinforce those skills and adds the technical aspects.  NEW  U9 (2007) program is for those who do not participate in travel and is not mandatory for U9 travel players, as in the past.

Children enrolled in the Warrior Program are grouped by birth year Jan 1-Dec. 31st  2008(U9), 2009(U8) &  2010(U7)and gender.

  • Moves, foot skills, first touch, 1v1’s, 2v2’s, 3v3’s and small possession work, using the 4v1 and 3v1, are the emphasis of the curriculum. 
  • Emphasis on attacking and defensive principles while in game situations is encouraged.
  • Introduction of throw-ins, corner and goal kicks as well as goalie concepts are taught during the game portion of the weekend session. 
  • U8 players have an optional additional training day offered at an additional fee of $75.00 per season and is recommended for those who are looking for more touches and training at their age level.
