*U7 Split Game*
On match day teams will break into two groups to play two concurrent 4v4 games against an opposing team alongside each other. After the halftime break, one team can switch fields and play a second game against another group from the opposing team. From week to week different combinations of players should be used. This format will help to mix things up, minimise lopsided games, take the focus away from the score and enable teams to remain together moving into U8s the following year.
