What is the Carolina Elite 5v5 League?

The Carolina Elite 5v5 League is a great way for players to stay active during the winter months. We are offering divisions for all players born from 2017 through 2005. We have a place for everyone to play!

Our league is organized to allow teams to continue working together while focusing on their individual development during the off season. Players are encouraged to organize teams prior to registration. During the registration process, you will be asked to identify the name/coach of your 5v5 team. Teams will be placed into groups according to competitive level. 

All teams will play a minimum of 7 games. Each team requires a volunteer coach. The 5v5 season consists of games only. There are no practices.

WHY 5v5?

The priority in 5v5 is to motivate players in an environment that is conducive to learning. The more pleasure kids derive from their participation, the more they wish to play and practice on their own. While their instinct to play is natural, their affection and appreciation for soccer must be cultivated. Small sided games like 5v5 are the foundation to such goals because it:

  • Allows players to frequently touch the ball.

  • Presents many opportunities to score goals and score goals often.

  • Encourages regaining possession of the ball as a productive and rewarding part of the game.

  • Maximizes active participation and minimizes inactivity and boredom.

  • Provides a well organized playing environment with improvised fields.

  • Reflects the philosophy of player development expressed in state and national coaching schools.

  • Eliminates complicated rules such as off-sides that may hinder youngsters from “playing”.

  • Reflects the appropriate roll of the coach as a Facilitator.

  • Allows the game to be the teacher!
