About Major Beach Soccer: Created by USL Technical Director Peter Mellor, Major Beach Soccer joined USL in 2010. A fixture on Florida beaches for the past 23 years, Major Beach Soccer events feature teams competing five-on-five in 30-minute games with prizes for champions and runners-up in all age groups. Flicks and acrobatic bicycle kicks are the norm in beach soccer, where the fields and goals are small but the action is nonstop.
