    U6 Munchkins Soccer

    Welcome to Munchkin Soccer where children in kindergarten are introduced to their first year of age-appropriate and developmental soccer.

    The age cutoff for Munchkins is 5 years (younger than 6) as of August 1st before the Fall and Spring seasons.


    This year we have 12 adult coaches and their individual teams. Teams have no more than 10 players each. The teams engage in age-appropriate skills and games, such as
    • Follow the Leader,
    • Red-light Green-light,
    • Freeze Tag,
    • Dribble Relay,
    • Explode,
    • Simon Says,
    • Last Man Out, and
    • Ball Tag, to name a few.


    Saturday Games take place at Greenwood Park (across from the Stoneham Zoo).

    Sneakers and uniform required at all games. No jewelery is allowed during games.

    Games are played at 2:00-3:00 and 3:30-4:30 on Saturdays. Each game date includes two sessions with six teams on the field. Check with your coach to find out which session you have.

    Game Dates:

    • Starting April 18th and will continue through until June 13th
    • Off on Memorial Day weekend, May 23rd
