ABOUT MICROS

Micros is open to all Branford residents (and youngsters attending school in Branford) who are between 7 and 8 years of age. For exact birthdates, please see the registration page.

As with Li'l Kicks, the goal of Micros is for the kids to have fun while being taught the skills that will allow them to to continue to enjoy the sport of soccer in coming years. Competition is not emphasized. There are no league standings kept nor champions declared. The youngsters themselves bring to each game all the competitive drive that is required.

Each player will be provided with a team shirt. Participants are divided into teams of 8-10 players each. One practice a week is held throughout the season at one of the Branford Soccer fields. Each team plays one game a week on at a defined field.

The Fall season begins in August and concludes in November. Registration for the fall program is conducted in June each year. All players registering at that time will be guaranteed inclusion in the program. Late registrants will be accepted only as field space, volunteer coaches and team roster space allow.

The Winter season begins in early January and concludes in April. Registration for the winter program is conducted in November each year. All players registering at that time will be guaranteed inclusion in the program. Late registrants will be accepted only as field space, volunteer coaches and team roster space allow.

The Spring season begins in mid April and concludes in June. Registration for the spring program is conducted in February each year. All players registering at that time will be guaranteed inclusion in the program. Late registrants will be accepted only as field space, volunteer coaches and team roster space allow.

 To both games and practices, Micros players should bring:  

  • Shin-guards (absolutely required)
  • A #4 ball with his/her name indelibly marked on the ball
  • A full water bottle
