World Cup Themed - Seasonal Development School (SDS)

The WORLD CUP SDS program is designed to support youth soccer clubs in implementing a more structured and developmentally appropriate environment for U6-U10 recreational programs. Headed up by licensed professional trainers, a fresh new age specific curriculum is delivered each season based on the United States Soccer Federation’s (USSF) Grassroots soccer approach to better support the development of youth players. For U8 players, this season we will be implementing a FUN WORLD CUP THEMED program with each player getting to experience the season as a World Cup team. Not only will this add to the excitement of game day, but players will learn about the players, culture and stadiums associated with the country they are representing for the season.
