* This developmental program is designed for any player who is interested in learning advanced skills without a commitment to a traveling soccer team.
* The Program is designed to improve the technical, tactical, and field awareness abilities of the player using many of the AYSO standards for youth training.
* With a ratio of 8-10 players per trainer, our certified AYSO coaches and trainers have years of experience working with and teaching younger players.
* Much of the focus will on the basic fundamentals of soccer in a safe, rewarding, challenging, and overall fun environment.
