Youth Development Program (U8-U10)

In our Youth Development Program (YDP), players born 2013-2016 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


​​​We do not run "formal tryouts" for our Youth Development Program (YDP) teams. During our player assessments held in early-May of each year, 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 all players, regardless of technical skills, will be offered a spot on a team. This is a great opportunity to get your child active and engaged with other player's their age!
