OVERVIEW - ESD: EARLY SOCCER DEVELOPMENT

ESD is our fun and exciting youth soccer program for both boys and girls who were born between 2012 and 2014. This program will expose your child to the game of soccer in a fun way, while developing the skills necessary at this age as a foundation for future growth.

Programs typically run one night a week with games on the weekend.

Our full-time, trained, and licensed staff coaches will work with volunteer parent coaches to provide a great overall experience.  Professional soccer players from Penn FC are often guest coaches at our training sessions.

If you child would like to play with a friend, please note that on the registration!
