The most popular game in the world, soccer is easy to understand, follow and play – unlike more complicated rule-heavy sports played with two teams of 11 players each including goalkeepers and ten outfield players. At Ryde, a variant called six-a-side soccer is played and each game in the game is played across 2 x 16min halves in a 40min time slot. A standard each soccer match is divided into two halves, each lasting 45 minutes each with a 15-minute break at half time. The objective of the game of soccer is to score goals by getting the ball into the opposing team’s net while preventing them from doing the same. It’s a player-focused game where every player has an opportunity to shine!
With divisions covering men’s, women’s and mixed seniors available all year, outdoor soccer is the ideal place for soccer enthusiasts of all ages and abilities at the Y facilities. Whether you are a seasoned soccer player or new to the sport, there’s a team for you!
