The Developmental Program runs weekly; with hour-long practices one night per week and games on Saturday mornings at 9:30, 10:30 or 11:30. When registering you can enter up to two (2) nights your child cannot practice. We use that information when forming teams. 

The program is designed for players regardless of ability or experience. Players are encouraged to learn and take an interest in the game of soccer. The game of soccer encourages physical fitness and teaches valuable lessons in teamwork, sportsmanship, fair play, problem-solving and social skills. Teams are coached by parent volunteers.
