FGLL looks to foster the development of players by providing a development league that plays at a highly proficient and skilled level. Our aim is to keep games friendly while acknowledging competition. We aim to provide an outlet for players that is not part of the pressure-filled, win-at-all-cost environment often found in youth sports. To accomplish this, Town Programs agree to the following:

  • Provide balanced teams in an age group in an effort to compete successfully against teams from other towns.
  • The Home team will keep score for the umpire. If a 4 (or more) goal differential is reached, the trailing team can elect to receive a free position at midfield instead of a draw.
  • The score will not be posted, broadcasted or announced in any way – either during the game or afterwards. Players usually know if they are winning or losing and should learn to do both with respect.
  • Teams should adjust their play if the game is lopsided (e.g. more passes before shooting, work on non-dominant hand, move players to positions they are less comfortable with). Ideally, these adjustments are made during a time-out or at half-time and therefore transparent to the trailing team.
  • There are no standings kept, no league championship or playoffs.
