5v5 Dutch Futsal
Despite the large number of players we don't have enough individual teams to make the league work at its best. With this said, we have decided to do a dutch style league.
In this format a number of players rotate through different teams in a series of short games. Each player is awarded points based on the result of his team's game. These points are added together so that at the end of the tournament there will be an overall ranking of all participants.
This system keeps the games competitive. The children are playing to win and one or two losses are not catastrophic. If needed the coach can monitor the scores and adjust the teams so that players can't easily run away with the tournament or get buried.
Week 2 Dutch Style Top Players
Top 10 for the Season
We will have a Academy Division (U8-10), Pre-Select (U11-12), Jr. High (U13-15), High School Division (U16+)
The game schedules are put on a board and kids rotate teams every game. Each player gets 1 pt every time their team scores a goal. They get 5 points for a win. 3 pts for a draw and 0 for a loss. Teams that lose still count their goals.
Pros of Dutch Styles Leagues
* 5v5 allows more touches.
* Play with different kids each game, so you have to communicate with them and adapt.
* Kids ref, so they will learn important problem-solving skills.
* Different games stimulate different skills and problem solving.
* You won’t have one good team winning everything. Those individual players will be taken out of their comfort zone which is good for development.
