Mini junior football question. 22:28 - Jul 12 with 552 viewssherpajacob

Does anybody know, under FAW rules, at what age group kids go to 11 a side.

My U11s go to 8 a side next season, and I've been told by someone that they go to 11 a side at U12. Seems a hell of a jump to me.

I can't find anything conclusive on FAW sites.

It's 9 v 9 on a full size pitch at u12.
11 v 11 at u13.

Cheers BJ,
That was also my understanding. Do you have any links / evidence to that effect.

The person who told me it was 11v11 at u12 usually talks complete b0ll0cks, but I didn't have any way to refute him.

In swansea it's 11 a side for u12s. In neath (and I think Carmarthenshire) it's 9 a side for u12s.

It does seem dependant on the local league.
Vale of Glamorgan
U6 & U7- 4 a side
U8 - 5 a side
U9- 6 a side
U10 7 a side
U11 - 8 a side.
Seems a logical progression so far, but then
U12 - 11 a side on a full size pitch.
Do we just want to produce a generation of hoof ballers?

The newly amalgamated Port Talbot & Bridgend League is also 9v9 at U12. Pitch size is between the penalty areas.

11v11 on a full-size pitch at that age is (IMO) ridiculous. We played a friendly using those rules against a team from Swansea who wanted to get ready for next season and it was horribly apparent that the kids just weren't physically ready for it.
