Youth Development Program (Ages 9-14)

Youth Development Program Youth (Ages 9-14)

The YDP is like a year round gym membership for serious soccer players who are looking to improve their entire game without leaving their team.

The YDP focuses on improving players on the five components essential to becoming an effective soccer player (Technical, Tactical, Physical, Psychological, and Character).

The goal of this program is to produce students with exceptional soccer skills and first-class mental skills. YDP students become comfortable with the ball at their feet, tactically aware, physically strong and mentally tough.

Program regulations

Players looking to join this program are to be evaluated before entering the program.

The YDP kicks off with our winter Indoor training program where our students build their ball handling skills before moving on to our spring phase designed to improve distribution and 1 v 1 skills. During the summer our students spend 4 weeks working their entire game before moving on to the final Fall phase that consists of games designed to transfer their skill into game situations.


In an indoor setting our students build their ball handling skills, making them more efficient with the ball at their feet.


Spring phase focuses on further advancing the skill of all our students. Our students focus on executing their skills while in motion while being introduced to advanced skills.

Summer Camps

The summer phase of the YDP comprises a total of 60 hours of training. On a daily basis, our students get to further refine their skills and play games that further enhance their ability to be effective when in possession of the ball and intelligent without the ball.


The Fall phase of the YDP is dedicated to giving our students game like situations so they can transfer their skills into their own game. Our students spend the last 10 sessions of the program playing different types of Attacking, Defending, Possession and Micro Games.
