Youth Development Program

8U – 10 (YDP)

Open for All Children born;

Birth Years 2013, 2012, 2011

YDP will help our younger players better develop soccer techniques, while gaining confidence in this training environment.

The training curriculum will focus on technique (ball mastery), opportunities for more game-like touches on the ball (1v1, 2v2, 3v3), and a fun learning environment.  Our players will receive more quality touches on the ball, which will lead them to: gain more confidence…more fun…and more success!

We do not feel the need to tryout and evaluate such young players, as we will not be forming “top-elite teams” at 8-10U ages.  The focus is on Youth Development.  Simply register online to be added into the program!
