Junior RDP

U6/U7 Training Development Program
Learning the Game - Fundamentals

The Junior Rep Development Program is an extra weekly technical session available to our house-league players looking to transition into our Rep Development Program at the U8 age group.  The sessions are more technical in nature than the house-league practices, and are led by Coach Mamadou (who coaches in the Rep Development Program) and Coach Silviu (our Sports Club Manager & Soccer Technical Director).

Below is more information on the program, including details on our development model, curriculum, and the program's dates.

Jr. RDP is now year-round!  We are pleased to announce that we will be offering an indoor component for Jr. RDP.  For all the details for the 2018-19 indoor season,
