Youth Development Program (U8-U10)
In our Youth Development Program (YDP), players born 2014-2017 will be challenged through fun games and team interaction. This program prepares players for competitive soccer and improves recreational players' skills. The engaging, age appropriate program focuses on the early development of individual players with an emphasis on:
Teamwork and Competition, introduced at a developmentally appropriate level
Technical Skills & Body Mechanics
Tactical Knowledge & Decision Making
Individual Growth & Communication
PCU's programs create a competitive and supportive environment for our players to reach their own personal potential through the game of soccer. Our holistic approach to development helps to achieve positive results both on and off the field for our players and families. In general, we offer multiple levels of teams within each age-group, allowing players to compete at an appropriate level for their skill-set.
During our player assessments held at the start of each season, our coaches will get to know your player's focus, listening skills and ability to participate as part of a team through fun challenges and games. In general, players will be offered a spot on a team regardless of technical skills. This is a great opportunity to get your child active and engaged with other player's their age! Spots on select teams open mid-season (use button below to learn more).
