DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE

Being in a team environment & playing competitive soccer helps the development of young players skyrocket. Our U7 academy players currently play in competitive 5v5 festivals in the EDP Futures League.

We are using the same structure for our Development League by playing competitive Soccer every Saturday.

Players will receive 1 hour per week of  technical training by our full time professional PSA coaches.

Our curriculum addresses the physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs of a child. This exciting soccer program teaches basic soccer skills while developing strength, balance, coordination, listening skills and teamwork allowing young players to learn soccer in a fun but structured environment. The development of motor-skills, creativity and ball manipulation are essential ingredients for any young soccer player.
