What is YDP?

The Discoveries Youth Development Program (YDP) is the perfect opportunity for players to improve their skills . YDP provides the environment to develop their social , technical , physical and mental skills . Emphasis is placed on development as opposed to winning with a heavy focus on the fundamentals of soccer . It is ensured that that practices are organized and professional . This applies to both the practices and the games. Its the perfect platform for players who want to learn whilst having fun and also in the future play Travel or School Soccer. The program caters for all abilities and experiences.

Why sign-up for YDP (Players aged 7-12):
The YDP offers players the chance to bridge the gap between recreational and travel soccer . By participating players will improve technically with a stronger understanding of positioning in Soccer.
