PONY SOCCER is the Mid-Isle Soccer Club’s in-house group for 5-8 year-old’s, sponsored by Tim Hortons. Pony players do not travel to other communities for games – they play on Saturday mornings in Ladysmith. The season starts in September and finishes in early March. Boys and girls are mixed on each team, and teams are typically made up of 10-12 players.
Pony players are split into two divisions – Pony B, and Pony C:
Players in the Pony C group include 5-year-olds and 6-year-olds. They generally have one team practice a week, and one game on Saturday mornings. Games are 6 players a side against another Pony C team.
Players in the Pony B group include 7- and 8-year-olds. They also have one team practice a week, and one 6v6 game on Saturday mornings against another Pony B team.
