jrdevelopmentThe Jr. Development Program

 

NO TRY-OUTS

For players born 2004 – 2012, ages 6-14

Monday and Wednesday Nights From late May to the end of July.

SLU’s JR Development Program is designed to teach children the fundamentals of soccer, by developing individual ball skills in a safe, friendly environment using age appropriate activities. The program is the first step on a pathway leading to a life long enjoyment of the game, giving players the foundational skills in order to play at whatever level they wish.

SLU’s Junior Development Program is for players ages 6-14, with the emphasis on skills development rather than on games and scores. The format is one night of training and one night of small sided games.
