Houma-Terrebonne Soccer Association: Blackhawk Dev Program for U9 & U10s

Monday, July 7
NEW FOR THE 2014/2015 SEASON
BLACKHAWK DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (U9/U10)

 
Overview: The Blackhawk Development Program (BDP) is an Academy program for U9 and U10 players.  The BDP is designed to act as a bridge between our recreational and competitive programs by offering additional training to build skills and further technical development.
 
What is an Academy Program?  An Academy Program is designed to offer a higher level of training by trained coaches at younger ages.  It also offers maximum flexibility of rosters. Therefore, players in the BDP will not necessarily be assigned to a team and depending on the numbers could be playing on a different team from week to week.  The BDP is not an "All-star" team.  The BDP will play 8v8 on a larger field than rec and play longer games.  Coaches will be encouraged to follow the 50% play rule.
 
The BDP for the 2014/2015 season will be an optional addition to the rec program.  Therefore, all players must register as normal for recreational soccer.  Recreational teams and schedules will not be affected and players cannot play in the BDP only.  Click Here to register for Fall Recreational Soccer

BDP Schedule: A tentative schedule has been developed to give parents an idea about the commitment.  There will be two weeks of concentrated training before the rec season in fall and spring.  During the rec season there will be Friday night training and on every other Sunday there will be scrimmages or friendlies.  The BDP teams will play in one tournament in the fall and one in the spring.  For a tentative schedule, click prior Link.

The BDP will be a program that develops coaches and managers for the competitive program.  For 2014/2015 season there will be one head coach assigned to the boys and one head coach assigned to the girls.  Depending on numbers, additional coaches will be added to the program.
 
Cost:  $100 per season ($100 for the Fall & $100 for the Spring)

To register reply to htsasoccer@gmail.com with the name of the player and birthdate.  Fees will be collected by your BDP coach.
 
I am looking for at least one manager on the boy's side and girl's side of the program. Please do not hesitate to call or email me with questions. I am looking forward to seeing everyone on the pitch.
