Originally known as the HYS Pilot Program, and the first program of its kind in this area, this special program to provide advanced player development and training celebrates its 20th year in spring 2019.The Premier Development Program is a supplementary training program for U7 and U8 boys and girls who are interested in training at a higher level than provided week to week in the house league. Although by no means only for children intending to play travel soccer someday, the program is ideal for U8 players who may be interested in trying out for fall 2019 travel in late May (dates and time TBA) or for U7’s who want to tryout a year early or just to get that extra training and exposure to the pro coaching staff. Some weeks will feature primarily training with some in house scrimmages and other weeks will feature home or away games with other clubs. Once again this spring we are expanding the program to include an hour on Friday night as well as our usual Sundays.
NEW this season (applies to U8b and U7/8g only) the program is required for all players who want to be considered for the spring all-star teams. This is a short season because of the multiple holidays and the all-star coaches and staff plan to use the Premier practices and scrimmages (as well as regular games) to evaluate the nominees and select the teams. Being in Premier does not guarantee selection to the all-star teams, but being in premier is a per-requisite to being on the teams.
