Parents and Players,
Welcome to KYSL Futsal Player Development Program (PDP). Since 2012, PDP has evolved into a program to give young soccer players the opportunity to develop their personal skills of Ball Control, Passing, Shooting, and Quick Decision Making. These personal soccer skills are the foundation necessary for each player to enjoy, progress, and excel at the game of soccer.

KYSL is using Futsal as an effective way to teach basic soccer skills in a game environment. It is also one of the best ways to introduce the game of soccer to kids of all ages.

LEVELS OF PLAY. Players are sorted by age and skill level helping to create an environment of learning and development equal to each players needs. LEVELS will have up to 2 Groups of players in each. Each Group will have enough players to create 2 to 3 Teams per Session. Each Group will have Volunteer Parent Coaches to manage the players in the teams created (younger groups may need more help then older groups).
THE GOAL is to place each player in an environment to grow their person skills through playing the game of Futsal.
PLAY TRAIN PLAY is the model we will be using for the Futsal Program. In each Session the group Players will be divided up into equal teams and will start to PLAY. After an allotted time Coaches then will TRAIN players on an aspect of the game they need to work on. PLAY will then resumes so players can work on the newly taught skills. This process may occur several times during Session.
