Our Player Development League (PDL) for kindergarten and 1st Grade offers soccer education at it’s best in a positive, fun environment where players improve their skill during continuous play. The 4 v 4 system accelerates development of dribbling, turning and passing abilities as it provides a basic picture for players to learn the game. Our professional staff takes the necessary steps to ensure each game fits the players’ needs, ultimately leading to better game intelligence and understanding.
Our Player Development League 2nd-3rd Grade match day provides players a fun environment with coaches focused on building a strong technical foundation. These five-a-side games, first used as a developmental tool in the UK, feature four field players and a goalkeeper. This style is simple, yet allows for players to gain experience through realistic, game-like situations. Along with a basic introduction to goalkeeping, the five-a-side format results in consistent touches on the ball and a fundamental understanding of the principles of attack and defense with the guidance of our professional coaching staff.
Our program offers players of all levels a fun, technically-focused practice structure to keep players engaged. All activities are age-appropriate to foster technical growth, improve fitness, create awareness, develop flexibility on and off the ball, builds confidence and a love of the greatest game in the world.
Coordinator/Manager: All Game Day communication is managed by Brit-Am Staff.
Parents/Spectators: Please allow players to play the game with the freedom to make mistakes and learn. Be enthusiastic and friendly to everyone present – never critical. Be positive by focusing on the progress each player makes, not the result. We expect the parents help in creating a fun and positive environment by cheering and encouraging players. Parents must refrain from coaching their child during the game or becoming solely focused on the result.
Player(s): Should be on time and bring a size 3 ball, water bottle, shinguards, comfortable attire and cleats or tennis shoes to every match and practice.
