Travel Development Program (TDP)

U9 Travel Development Program

The Travel Development Program (TDP) 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.

The TDP follows similar guidelines to US Soccer to provide a developmental pathway catered to strengthen player growth in preparation for older travel age groups.

Important information about TDP:
