DEVELOPMENTAL LEAGUE

Our most popular program at PSU!

6 WAYS THE DEVELOPMENTAL LEAGUE DEVELOPS SMART, TECHNICAL, AND CREATIVE SOCCER PLAYERS!

PSU is proud of our new Developmental Soccer League which is open to players in the U6, U7, U8, and U9 age groups. 


We saw a need for this league to provide players with a fun and safe league to play their first games, while learning from our professional coaches. We were unsatisfied with the experience provided by volunteer parent coaches in the recreational leagues to which we previously directed our kids. This league grew out of a desire to provide the maximum development to the U6, U7, U8, and U9 players in our Developmental Classes, but is also open to players who have not previously participated with PSU. Ideally, players sign up for one or two Developmental Classes per week to learn the fundamentals of the game, and try out what they are learning each week at our Developmental league.

All players come to the field with a ball and their uniform (green and white reversible jersey--see below). The coaches lead the group in a skills warm-up that involves each player learning new ways to manipulate the ball. For the final 40 minutes the coaches divide the players into teams to play 4v4 (one team on each field is green and one team is white).

Each team is led by one of the professional PSU coaches, who also coach in our Travel Program and our Developmental Classes. The focus at this age is on being empowered to try moves, gain confidence dribbling the ball and seeing the opportunities to be creative. 

 

We believe that it is important that kids at these young ages get the consistency of playing with players they know, while having a varied game experience, playing with and against new kids.
