The Development Program is for players from U8 to U12. Winning in not the primary focus of development teams and the leagues do not publish scores or standings. The focus of the program is to train each player to develop their individual skills and learn how to play effectively as a team. Players will receive equal playing time and each will play in multiple positions to learn all aspects of the game (especially at U9 and U10).
The U9-U12 ages are the “golden years of learning” and we strive to enable all players compete to the best of their abilities. If we enter multiple teams in U9 and U10 age divisions, we (and all other clubs in the district) will strive to ensure these teams are equal in ability. In U11 and U12, the tiering of teams will take place if necessary to prepare players for the Competitive Program.
Teams in this program play within the York Region Soccer Association (YRSA) boundaries and include the towns/cities of Aurora, Concord, Georgina, Kleinburg-Nobleton, King City, Markham, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Stouffville, Thornhill, Unionville, Vaughan and Woodbridge.
