We play and train, rain or shine (but not in lightning!). However, the YDP Summer includes a short break from June 30 – July 15.
All training and games take place at the southeast corner of Pineview Park, just off Beaverpond Drive (behind John Paul II School, 1500 Beaverpond Dr.).
As a reminder, the YDP is intended to help kids develop soccer skills and have lots of fun. Our learning environment is always positive. League teams are based on a players’ individual skills rather than strictly their age. Over the first three sessions of the season, we will make adjustments to teams and player placements based on the player’s abilities. The number of players per team will vary from 10-14.
Our goal is to provide instruction on proper soccer techniques and then give players the opportunity to apply them in small-sided games. The smaller number of players on the field permits each child to maximize touches on the soccer ball. This reinforces their training, and improves their skills and confidence with the soccer ball.
Please note: we endeavour to hand out the YDP player kits (uniform, ball, etc) within the first few weeks of the start of the program. This doesn’t always happen, but we try our best!
