What does the U in U9 mean?

The "U" stands for Under which means the players on that team start off under that age and are often turning the age number (ex. U9 means the players are at most 8 years old turning 9, whereas U14 means the players are 13 turning 14).

New kits or pieces can be ordered through Soccer.com here: https://www.soccer.com/club/#/search, then by searching for our Romeo FC store and finally your player's name or team.


Can I wear a cast (or earings, religious medals, eyeglasses)?

The FIFA Laws of the Game prohibit anything which could be dangerous to ones self or other players. Referees ultimately determine what can be worn without being dangerous. Consult your coach with specific questions.

 

Are mouth guards needed?

Injuries to the teeth are so few that insurers do not require them. Many dentists however recommend them.

 

What format does my team play? 

U9-U10 play 7v7, U11-U12 play 9v9, and U13 and older play 11v11. (7v7 means 7 total players on each team at time.)
