WMSC is excited to offer the Development Program, which a step above REC but still pre Travel and pre Premier.
The US Soccer rule change now states that U8 teams should play 4 players aside, without goalies. This rule change is a positive thing for young player development, as it promotes footskills, proper positioning and passing, as opposed to the "swarm of bees" that we have all seen at the younger ages.
WMSC Development Program is focused on teaching our U-7 and U-8 age groups the fundamentals of possession, passing, shooting, positioning, footskills and teamwork. Additionally, the Development Program will differ from the REC program in that it will introduce our youngest players to more advanced, competitive soccer with the opportunity to compete in local mini tournaments, but will not lose sight of the fact that first and foremost these players should be having fun!
