South Bucks Mini Soccer Conference (SBMSC)

Mini Soccer develops players without pressure

Mini Soccer is the format for youngsters to play club football. Over three thousand boys and girls aged six to twelve years play friendly developmental mini-soccer games against other clubs in a supportive atmosphere with us. Our award winning Fairplay scheme helps avoid unnecessary pressure on players.  As a result we’ve had a period of high growth in the last few years and SBMSC membership 2016/2017 was  235 squads, most of which comprise two mini soccer teams.  For season 2017/2018 we had 244 squads registered by the AGM in June, but changes over the summer made this fall to 239 squads by September 2017 .

Our award winning Fairplay league measures sporting behavior shown by a teams supporters, players and officials. It shows how the game should be played and what behavior is expected.  During the season, please submit Fairplay ratings for your opposition  here. Later in December we’ll be publishing Fairplay tables for the first half of the season. Please make sure you sign in and rate opposition teams for Fairplay before the deadline (which is three weeks after the game date). Just a reminder that we count all our games including those with teams that have withdrawn or moved division, so please make a submission for all games while you can.
