Moving Through the Age Groups

As you progress through the age groups, lots changes, from friendly to competitive, from 5 a side to eventually 11 a side, from no offside to offside and so on. We've put together a page that covers the major changes / points of note for each of the 4 major format changes you will experience over the years, each written by someone for whom the change was relevant recently.

As with everything else contained within these pages, if you have anything you think would be useful to add to any of these, please e-mail
