FHYSC Recreational Development Academy is a unique soccer development program for Under 7 and Under 8 soccer players. Our aim is to accelerate the technical and tactical development of players who wish to progress in soccer and in the future participate in our U9 competitive academy program. FHYSC has recognized that there are many talented U7 and U8 players within our club, and in the local area who would benefit from a dedicated soccer environment to continue to nurture each player’s skills and prepare them for higher-level soccer. FHYSC RDP is a seasonal academy program designed for the passionate, motivated, and advanced player who fosters the desire to be challenged in every aspect of their game. This program gives those players the opportunity to become even better soccer players by training in a professional environment with professional coaches and alongside like-minded players. Through a fun and challenging curriculum, players are provided the tools to help accelerate their technical and tactical development to continue to take their game to the next level. In an effort to maximize player development, players are maintained in training groups and play non-results oriented games as in our competitive academy program. Players may also have the chance to represent our club when playing neighboring clubs and in local tournaments.

Where individual player development is paramount to master key soccer techniques and concepts that are required at a higher level of play. This program allows players to experience an academy soccer environment while preparing players and parents for the next step of the soccer process.
