Tactical Skill Development

Long-Term Player Development Program

Brampton Youth Soccer Player Development Center (PDC)

U8-U12 (Ages 8-12)

Objective

The primary objective of creating the Player Development Center (PDC) is to provide a high-level, “competitive” training environment tailored to the age-specific needs of individual players. The program will be designed and coordinated under the supervision of our technical staff, and run by our staff head coaches. The PDC will be an age-specific, curriculum-based program that is developed according to LTPD. In addition to developing technical skills, it will place a strong emphasis on progressing within our club, inspiring athletes to compete at the highest level possible. Upon graduation from the PDC, players will be well equipped to enhance their chances of progressing to higher-level leagues including the OPDL, Provincial Teams, Toronto F.C. Academy, and National Teams.

The Golden Age of Learning

During this age group, role models can have a profound effect on the way children develop their personal character traits. Players begin to identify with famous athletes and successful teams, and strive to mimic their skills and personality traits. Skill demonstration is crucial during this stage, as players learn best by actively engaging in activities rather than merely watching. During this time period, players transition from a self-centered to a self-critical mindset, with a high level of stimulation during basic skills training.
