Meltdown Friendly Adds Funfest
Now Teams from U7 to U9 Can Play Too
For the first time ever, we are offering teams as young as U7 a chance to compete in a tournament format. We call it a Funfest, it happens February 9 and 10, and all U7 through U9 teams are invited to play!
For 20 years or more, AYSO has offered an opportunity for teams to compete in a fun friendly tournament at the start of the spring season. We call the tournament the Meltdown. The Meltdown has always been open to primary core teams, EXTRA teams, ACT teams, and Challenge teams as well as club teams from other organizations. This year, for the first time, we are extending the tournament to teams as young as U7.
The tournament format for the older teams will follow "club" format including number of players and the use of free substitutions. But the Funfest will follow AYSO format with 5-a-side games at U7 and U8 and 7-a-side games at U9 and U10.
The Meltdown Funfest will give younger teams a chance to play, have fun, compete, and get in three or four games before the season starts. It will be a great opportunity for fun and player development. Come join us for this exciting event!
The Funfest will be held at the beautiful State Tournament Soccer Complex in Bernalillo, and the entry fee is only $90 per team. See all the details on the Meltdown page.
