Player Development Program (PDP)

HSC's PDP program is designed to transition Intramural players to our Travel Soccer program

Hunter PDP Overview

The Player Development Program (PDP) concept has been implemented successfully in many parts of the country in order to develop young soccer players during their formative years. PDP allows players to properly develop their technical ability and learn important ball control skills in a fun and developmentally appropriate manner. The training curriculum is based on the most current recommendations from the USSF.
