SPRING LEAGUE

 

 

DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

The Development Program is our more competitive soccer level and requires a higher level of commitment and skill level than our club/recreational program.   This program starts at the U8 age group and carries on until U18.   The number of development teams and formed each year and age group may vary based on the pool of players and their skill level. 

 

DEVELOPMENT TEAMS

The purpose of a development team is to provide an opportunity for qualified players to compete at a higher level of competition with players that are like-minded. Playing at any development level will involve a greater commitment of time, travel, and additional costs by the player.  During the season, parents and players can expect that development team practices will be held twice a week (one of the training sessions will be a part of the Academy Program if applicable - see below) and one game per week. It is also highly recommended that players participate in a core conditioning or related skills session once a week, in addition to NDFC training sessions.

PROGRAM DETAILS:

The spring development program is only offered to players by invite only.   Based on player numbers, we may invite club players or registered out of club players into the Development Program and therefore a difference in fees will need to be paid.
