Youth Development Program
 
 
 
 
Launched in September 2012, the SC Gjøa Youth Development Program offers specialized training for players from 5-12 years of age who are looking for professional coaching in a positive environment. Whilst Travel Soccer is an option for many aspiring players, it is not always a good fit for all. The Youth Development Program provides an introduction to progressive training sessions for those players who are not quite ready for the step up to Travel.
 
During the program we aim to develop the players individual skills from ball mastery and shooting to passing and receiving techniques. Gaining comfort with the soccer ball at a young age is the quickest path to improving as a soccer player. We want every player to develop to his or her true potential and most of all have fun playing soccer with SC Gjøa!
 
A great supplement to programs such a AYSO, our Youth Development Program runs for 8-10 weeks during the Fall, Winter and Summer every Friday afternoon. 
 
With many players having aspirations to play for a Travel Soccer team, this is a great way to improve your skills and develop your game. Over the years we have had some great success stories of players progressing from YDP to a SC Gjøa Travel team.
