When It Comes To Indoor Soccer, Smaller Is Better
Not very many kids can shoot a basket on a 10 ft high basketball hoop nor ride a full two wheel bike the first time they try, but that is exactly what is happening on indoor soccer pitches around North America. Think of the wisdom of having 4, 5 and 6 year olds trying to run up and down a 60 yard, 80 yard or 100 yard soccer pitch. What do you get? Satisfied parents thinking their kids are playing on the same size field as their heroes? If that is your goal as a facility owner or program manager, you are in the wrong business. You are also getting tired, bored kids. Increasingly (and thankfully) more and more youth soccer programs are turning to smaller play areas for kids under the age of 10. As an added benefit, many of these smaller areas are also being used to increase the skills of older kids and adults in 2 v 2 and 3 v 3 formats. Sport Resource Group Portable Field Dividers are the perfect fit for organizations that want to temporarily (AND SAFELY) divide up fields for these uses. Portable field dividers can then be removed for full size field activities.
