Riverfront United Developmental Program – Ages 7-16
Riverfront United Developmental Program is designed for children ages 7-14 years old. We are dedicated to providing excellent soccer training for children of all abilities. Dany O’Rourke directs the sessions by providing challenging activities that will help young soccer players build confidence and develop their soccer skills through consistent and dedicated training. Class size is limited so register early.
Riverfront’s Development Program will have a new look this year!
For the first 45 minutes of class we will continue to do our basic fundamental soccer drills to try and give our players the basic tools to be successful. The last 45 minutes of class will be game situations in a 4v4 environment. It is my belief that soccer players start to develop a little faster doing this as it gives them the opportunity to play in a real game setting while getting more touches on the ball.
