The following describes a program for Recreational U6 - U12 players throughout the Metro Tulsa area (such ages are limited from time to time and are split up between U6 - U8 and U9 - U12) to promote the game of soccer and a healthy lifestyle. The below characteristics define the MTsc United PDP Skills Development Program.
The PDP program for soccer skills development is for youth players who are newer to soccer and/or whose parents want them to receive some advanced technical training providing them greater opportunities from direct teaching from a professional, licensed soccer trainer which is over and above what the recreational program (by itself) offers through its volunteer parent coaches. The mission of PDP is to provide a flexible method for challenging, improving, and developing foundational individual soccer skills in a positive and fun environment as a complement to their recreational league team play. PDP can greatly enhance your athlete’s personal recreational playing experience through the confidence it instills. PDP is NOT team-based. PDP is training group based facilitated by a trained professional(s). There are no refunds applicable to this Program. All sessions are conducted outside on the south side of the MTsc SoccerPlex.
The PDP Program is generally applicable to U6 – U8s and separately U9 - U12s which corresponds to a 5 ½ to 12 year old youth athletes. Player Age cut off is July 31st – meaning you are what age you are on August 1st (example: My child is 6 1/2 years old on August 1st – my child is a U7 participant). From time to time the age allowed may change within the 5 ½ to 12 year old range (i.e. only U6 - U8s).
The focus is on player participation and soccer skills development in a challenging, fun environment. For a detailed description of the Program itself check out “MTsc U PDP Program Content" PDF at the bottom of the page.
Trainers/coaches are professionals experienced in the game provided by MTsc U. Typically local high school soccer coaches (such as Holland Hall and/or Jenks and others) assigned specifically to the groups of U6-U8 or U9-U12 head the sessions which are supported by their varsity players.
