Game Basics

All games are on Sundays for TKO Minis

  • TKO Junior games are against TKO Mini players.
  • 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 Details

  • 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.
