“DEVELOPMENT” ACADEMY PROGRAM - U9 - GIRLS & BOYS BORN IN 2011
Known to many as the bridge between the “youth league” and competive programming the Development Academy Program is designed to give your child the opportunity to build a specific foundation of technical development in the appropriate years of playing and enjoying the game of soccer. The DEVELOPMENT program initially offers two pathways for 2019-2020 registrants. One is the U9 Development Academy, where the technical programming is facilitated by the Boise Timbers|Thorns Professionally Licensed Full Time Staff. The other option is to continue in the path of the RECREATIONAL "youth league" track.
The uniqueness of our DEVELOPMENT program is that we create an “in-house” training and play environment run by our professional staff, with technical curriculum focused on developing progressive skills and aspects for players.
The U9 DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY PROGRAM will prepare a player and family for an end of year assessment, allowing them to then choose to continue to the competitive U10 and above FORMATION program OR continue down the RECREATIONAL "youth league" program offering.
