VYS Development Center

Is your player interested in playing in the Travel Program one day?

Does he/she want to "try Travel" first before attending Travel Tryouts?

If "yes" to any of the above questions, then the VYS Development Center is the right place for your player.

The VYS Development Center is recommended for all house (rec) players U6 - U9 who are interested in transitioning to the Travel program.  

The Development Center model puts players’ development first with the focus and attention on the finer detail. Development Center values individual development, teaching the game and player performance more than winning. Each session will test and push the players technically, socially, physically, and cognitively.

Weekly training sessions are provided for U6-U9 age groups. U8-U9 players will also participate in 4 games near the end of the program against other club teams and among each other.
