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 enters its 19th year in fall 2018.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 (tryouts TBA in late May/early June 2019) 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 we usually play home and away scrimmages with a neighboring club.
