YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

The Youth Development Program (YDP) is for boys and girls and it acts as the bridge program between recreation level soccer and travel soccer. The big difference is the environment that is created to enable the players to learn. We have licensed professional coaches not volunteers working with the players on individual ball-work with a high-focus on dribbling, turning, and 1v1 scenarios.
Sessions designed to place each player in a CHALLENGING, FUN, & POSITIVE environment . The new knowledge gained in practice will be put into game play on the four scrimmage dates. This is where more game understanding is learned with coaches in the field focusing on positioning and game rules.

You can register for our NEW YDP JUNIORS & YDP PREMIER Programs below
