Rep Development Program
THANK YOU TO OUR
The Rep Development Program (RDP) is Mooredale’s developmental soccer program. RDP was launched in the summer of 2013, to provide a structured approach to skill development and competitive soccer here at the club. The program was created with the standards and guidelines of the Long-Term Player Development model passed down to clubs by Sport Canada, Canada Soccer, and Ontario Soccer.
RDP has enjoyed success in the years since its inception, and has grown to include the U8 – U17 age groups, with both select (festival/tournament play only) and rep (league play and tournaments) teams for both boys and girls.
The program is designed for those players seeking a more challenging level of play than house-league, and as such includes more training and commitment than recreational soccer. The program runs year-round, involving both an indoor season (October – April) and an outdoor season (May – September).
RDP is a year-round program, but we understand that participating in other activities and sports is an important part of growing up. During the indoor season, players and families can opt into a commitment level that works for them – e.g. 1 day of training per week only, or 2 days of training per week. During the outdoor season, players commit to 2 days of training per week in addition to games (league or festival/tournament), but there is some flexibility for those players who may be away for large parts of July & August, or who know they will be missing a significant number of the practices (select program).
The outdoor season includes 2 training sessions per week and games (either league or tournament/festival).
All our technical staff coaches have completed, at minimum, the Learn to Train or Soccer for Life coaching courses offered by Ontario Soccer, in addition Making Ethical Decisions, and Respect in Soccer. Many of them have begun to pursue higher certifications, including the C-License offered by Ontario Soccer, USSF licenses (American), and UEFA licenses (European). Mooredale provides our coaches with opportunities to attend clinics and conference in order to further their coaching education.
For bios on our coaching staff, please check out our Technical Staff page here.
Every fall (mid-to-late September), Mooredale runs an evaluation period where all players are welcome to register and attend some sessions to see if RDP would be a good fit for them. If your child is interesting in trying out the program, please contact the Martine Eleuteri (email@example.com) for more details.
If your child is interested in trying out RDP, but they have missed the fall evaluation period, please contact Martine Eleuteri (firstname.lastname@example.org), as we may be able to set up a trial period for them.
Looking for some more information of how RDP runs? Please feel free to contact Martine Eleuteri email@example.com and we’d be happy to chat about the program with you.
