YDA (Youth Development Academy)

The YDA program is focused on individual development to prepare young players for the older, higher levels of competition. We accept players in the U8, U9, and U10 age groups to participate in the program based on a yearly evaluation in May. Players are then placed into teams and trained 2 times a week during the Fall and Spring seasons. Players will also be offered in season technical training on Friday evenings, both Summer and Winter training options, as well as an indoor futsal league at no extra cost. Trainings will focus on individual skills with the ball and 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, and 4v4 tactics to best prepare them for success in the competitive leagues at U11 and up.​
