The Courage Development Program is a 10 month program focused on the development of each individual player.  In accordance with our Courage Vision "to maximize the potential of each individual player," the 7U/8U Courage Development Program (CDP) will provide an introductory foundation of individual skills for each player.   The 7U/8U CDP will offer a developmentally appropriate curriculum that will create a challenging and competitive environment.  The 7U/8U CDP is intended for those children more seriously focused on soccer, and for players (and parents) who are willing to make a stronger commitment to prioritizing development above the social aspects of youth soccer.

The Program will be broken down into 7U and 8U programs.  

Each program will include the following items:

  • Two - 60 min Training Sessions a Week for Fall and Spring Season
  • One - 60 Indoor Training Session a week for Winter Season
  • Intra-Program Games (Fall and Spring Seasons)
  • Competitive Inter-Club Games against other U8 programs (U8 only)
  • All Academy training and games will be coached by the Courage professional coaching staff

** Uniforms will not be included in the fees.  Players will order their uniforms online (approximately $50)**
