**U9/U10 Travel Development Program

Stafford Soccer is excited to continue with our U9/U10 Travel Development Program (TDP) for the 2018-19 seasonal year. This program is designed to create a training atmosphere for our young players to develop valuable technical skills in a less stressful environment. The TDP will allow our players and families to smoothly transition into the travel program while continuing to focus on individual player development.

The TDP will consist of a pool of players at each age group that will be selected by the Club’s Technical Staff and Staff Coaches through a tryout process. This program will focus highly on the technical and mental components of the game.  The emphasis of this program is to establish a strong foundation of technical skills along with the ability to make quick, smart decisions on the field.
