Dear SoccerHelp, What are the positions in soccer for 10 and 11 year olds? Can you send a picture? Thanks, Coach Mariah Mariah, I've pasted below a diagram for teams with 6 players on the field plus a goalie. The RF is Right Forward, LF is Left Forward, RMF is Right Midfielder, LMF is Left Midfielder, RFB is Right Fullback and LFB is Left Fullback. You can read more about this on SoccerHelp at "Soccer Position Basics"
- The diagram below assumes 7 players per side (7 vs. 7) in a 2-2-2 formation and the "Green" team is kicking off. Blue is on defense. (Note: the "field" below is not to scale; see the "Field Diagram" for a better drawing of a field. Note that Green has moved the RF over to take the kick and that his plan is to kick the ball deep to the left corner, and then the RF, the LF and the 2 MF's will run toward the ball to try to steal it back. See Notes, below, and "Formations and Tips For 7 v 7"):
