Junior Development Program (Ages U10-U12)

(Ages U10-U12) | Max 20 Students Per Class

JDP is a program specifically designed for young aspiring soccer players looking to join a high-level training program outside of their club team. Students in JDP are pre-evaluated and accepted based on their potential. They join a year-round training cycle that kicks off in the winter, runs through the spring, summer and concludes in the fall..

The JDP focuses on building a solid foundation of skills. Our students are taught the right mechanics behind each essential skill needed to be both effective and efficient when in possesion of the ball. Both micro and macro games are conducted throughout the year where players are encouraged to play with freedom and given the opportunity to test their skills in live game situations. In addition to the on-the-field activities, the JDP also gives our students the opportunity to study each playing position and develop the mental and character skills needed to be an effective soccer player. 

Curriculum

Winter

In an indoor setting, students begin the year by building their ball handling skills. With a focus on Juggling, Dribbling, Footskills and Turns our students come out the winter phase with the ability to elusively stear through conjested areas of the field. 


Spring 

The goal of the Spring phase is to give our students the opportunity to improve their first touch and 1 v 1 skills. Students work on their first touch by mastering controlling the ball with laces, insteps, thighs, and chest. Students are placed in 1 v 1 situations and tought how to effectively defend and attack in 1 v 1 situations.


Summer (3 Weeks of Camp)

Our students receive 3 weeks of Summer Camps that are designed to continue to further advance the skills improved during the winter and Spring and in addition work Distribution and Shooting Skills. On a daily basis our students refine their game and spend time learning how to pass the ball with accuracy and creativity through inside the foot, outside of the foot, chips and long-range passes. Our students develop their shooting skills and ability to score goals when near the goal by learning how to score with power, accuracy and deceptivness. On Wednesdays of each week, our students participate in our in-house (3 v 3 / 4 v 4 / 5 v 5) tournament where they play with freedom and express themselves without restrictions. 


Fall 

With significantly improved skills, our students spend the fall participating in Micro and Macro games designed to help them transfer their new and improved skills into game-like situations and improve their tactical awareness without the ball.
