The Registration "U8 Player Development & Travel Preparation Program" is not currently available.
The U8 Develop Program is focused on developing skills of young soccer players under the age of 8 and prepare both them and their parents for the opportunity to play travel soccer. The program encourages individual player skill development and introduces the team concept in the format of multi-club festivals and friendly matches. This program is managed and coordinated by the participating clubs and is not affiliated with any higher body of governance.
Is my child good enough to sign up?
The Program was formed with one of the intentions being eliminating the tryout/cut process currently associated with youth soccer. We feel no child U8 or under should be told they can’t play or be cut from a team. Kids develop physically at different times, and the focus of our program is to develop their skills properly so when they are fully developed teenagers they will have the necessary skill set. No child should have their future soccer career ended before it even has the chance to begin.
How will I know if my child will benefit from this program?
If your child has a love of the game and wants to be further challenged, they will benefit from our development philosophy, quality training sessions, varied game formats and qualified trainers and coaches. This program is designed to give your child the best opportunity for immediate improvement and future success in soccer.
Will my child be able to participate in all of the festivals?
All of the Fall and Winter festivals will be open to all participants in the program and with the small team sizes, each player will receive extended playing time. At least one of the Spring Festivals will have teams selected by the coaches based on the abilities the child has at the time of the event and based on their observation of the other participating clubs’ participant’s abilities. Participation in this festival is not guaranteed as part of the program.
