GAME BASICS

All games are on Sundays for TKO Juniors 

  • TKO Academy games are against TKO players only. These are separated, boys and girls games. Games are 4v4 or 5v5 (goalie).

We do not have set teams for the following reasons:

  • Maintains a competitive balance
  • Different team each week means making new friends 
  • Variety of coaches and chance to learn something new

Game Day Basics

  • Arrive 20-25 minutes early (parking lots will be busy).
  • Shoes tied!!!!
  • Have them go to the bathroom before each game.
  • Let them make mistakes and let them solve them as the coach guides them.
  • They will play multiple positions and look uncomfortable at times, this is a good thing.
