Recommended Formations per Division

The reason we have these recommended formations is to best prepare our AYSO kids for the formation they will most likely play in High School and College.
We want to give our players the best chance to succeed.

We are trying to teach the width and depth principle of play.  When WE have the ball we get Wide and Deep.  When THEY have the ball we get compact.

We want the formations to have NO straight lines of players; instead we want to create triangles.  This gives superior control and coverage of space.

The numbers start with the goalie and go to the attackers.  Example: A 1-4-3-3 Formation is 1 - Goalie, 4 - Backs, 3 - Mid-fielders, 3 - Attackers.

 U8 - 5v5 No Goalie

2 Line System
Formation - 0-2-3 (0 - Goalie, 2 - Backs, 3 - Mid-Fielders/Attakers)

U8 - 6v6 No Goalie

2 Line System
Formation - 0-3-3 (0 - Goalie, 3 - Backs, 3 - Mid-Fielders/Attakers)

U10 - 7v7

3 Line System
Formation - 1-2-3-1 (1 - Goalie, 2 - Backs, 3 - Mid-Fielders,  1 - Attacker)
Formation - 1-3-2-1 (1 - Goalie, 3 - Backs, 2 - Mid-Fielders,  1 - Attacker)

U12 - 9v9

Formation - 1-3-2-3 (1 - Goalie, 3 - Backs, 2 - Mid-Fielders, 3 - Attackers)
Formation - 1-3-3-2 (1 - Goalie, 3 - Backs, 3 - Mid-Fielders, 2 - Attackers)

U14 and Up - 11v11

Formation - 1-4-3-3 (1 - Goalie, 4 - Backs, 3 - Mid-Fielders, 3 - Attackers)

Who developed these? - Coach Paul Holocher, Cal Poly Men’s Soccer Coach, worked with Mark Marshall (former AYSO Region 741 Coach Administrator) to come up with  the best possible formations to teach our kids what they will need to know if they choose to play soccer beyond AYSO. 

These don’t seam normal.  Where do these ideas come from? - These come from the Dutch.  The formation and training the Dutch use is the best in soccer around the world.  Barcelona, the best team in the world, uses the Dutch system of play.  More and more professional teams and high school teams are starting to use this style of play.
