PDP - Player Development Program

Our "Player Development Program" enjoyed a successful opening day on Saturday, September 6th.  PDP has 75 players enrolled and is a technical development program designed for  6-,7-, and 8-year olds. The program is self-contained and plays in-house games as well as partners with local clubs to play a Pre- Academy schedule.  The next enrollment  to the program will be in February of 2015.  Please see below for more information.

Smyrna Soccer Club's Player Development Program  is a unique soccer development program for Under 8 soccer players, which aims to accelerate the technical and tactical development of players preparing to participate in the U9 Academy program.  We have recognized that there are many talented U8 players within our club, and in GA, who would benefit from a dedicated soccer environment to continue to nurture player ability and prepare them for higher-level soccer.
