Welcome to the AUSC Micros Soccer Program. This program is designed for the player who is a U6 or U7 (typically between the ages of 5 and 7) who is just getting started in soccer. The program is run through AUSC by parents and volunteers and is designed to provide a fun, safe learning experience for our kids.
The program currently runs in two seasons: Spring and Fall. The Spring season typically starts the first week in April and games run for 7-weeks. Practice times are combined with game times to allow for a single day program - making it easier for the parents and our many volunteers. Each team is provided with a 1:30 time slot on each Saturday during the season. The first :45 - :60 is practice time. The remaining time is set aside for a game. AUSC's Micros Program is an inter-club program, meaning that we play against other AUSC teams. This is done because of the sheer size of the program. During the Spring we can have as many as 35-40 teams and in the Fall as many as 60.
Games are played 4v4 and teams are gender-specific. Each team will have between 6 and 9 players. Halves of the game are typically 15 minutes with a 2-3 minute halftime. Games typically run 32-35 minutes. All games are played at one of the AUSC home fields...in the case of Micros this field is TBD. The main field is broken into 8 smaller "micro" sized fields. Each team is assigned to a numbered field for their weekend games (see the season schedule for your team's assigned location.) Fields will be setup for play and AUSC provided all cones and pop-up goals for practice and play time.
Season schedules are provided by AUSC to all coaches and parents at least two-weeks prior to the start of the season (the first weekend game.) This might seem like very little notice, but because of the program demand, the demand on volunteers, and the sheer numbers of players, the scheduling process can be quite complex and take 2-3 weeks to complete (because of field conflicts, player movement, late registrations, etc.) If you have questions, please always reach out to your coach or the AUSC for answers. But...please also be patient.
Look for more information as it's available. The program continues to evolve and we are looking at a few new additions in the coming months that will help grow this propular program even more.
All Micros games are played at Life Christian School
