Development Center Programs

Parents

Development Center is an opportunity for house players who aspire to become a travel player. The program is an opportunity for players to gain an insight of the travel experience and work with professional coaches.

Coaches

We would love to give every player the opportunity to participate in our Development Center Program, and offer you as the coach an opportunity to attend or assist. This would allow the players to practice twice a week, and continue to practice with their house team mates.

 

(For players born between 2012-2009)

Requirement: must be registered for House Spring season

The Development Center model puts players’ development first with the focus and attention on the finer detail. The 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. It is open to both boys and girls who are registered in the VYS House League and recommended for players interested in transitioning to the Travel program.

Make ups

The Development Center will be held on a turf field. Cancellation is unlikely but may happen in the event of heavy rainfall, thunderstorms or bad inclement weather. If such a cancellation occurs, we will have one make up session. The season schedule does not allow for multiple make up dates should there be more than one cancellation.
