EXPANDED YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Due to the great success of our Youth Development Program over the past decade we have decided to expand our offerings in this area. We have had many requests over the years to expand on this programming in length and also add an in-house league component to cater to our members up to 12 years of age. Now with facility and coaching options we feel we are in a position to do so.
OUR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
We will continue to offer our 2 Youth Development Program. The first session will run from mid - May through June with the second session kicking off in mid - June and running through July. Both sessions will run over 6 weeks and will focuses on fun, skill-building activities and games for any 4 to 11-year-old player. We will continue to divide this program into 2 subgroups: our Lil' Kickers program for 4 to 6 year-old players and our Juniors Program, aimed at 7 to 11 -year-olds.
This program has been the foundation of our Club for the past two decades. Often times we’ve been told that this was the highlight of a child’s summer. We make learning fun, which builds passion for the game. Greg Cane, a founder of Gitchi Gummi Soccer Club back in 1991 and UMD Women's Soccer head coach, leads the player development program. His wife, Patti Cane, has been involved with our younger soccer enthusiasts in the Lil' Kickers program now for 19 years. She does a fantastic job with the little ones as she uses her preschool director background to encourage, motivate, and engage our future stars.
Each of these 6-week camps will be held at Field 4 on the UMD Campus. This is located next to College Street. Each group gets 10 total sessions. The Lil' Kickers take the field from 5:15 to 6:15 and Juniors follow from 6:30 to 7:30. The fee for these will be $100per 6 week block.
