Early Development Program (EDP)
U8 and U9
This program is a cross between recreational and travel. These teams travel but no “standings or win/loss records” are kept by the league.
The EDP league is governed by the NHSA (NH Soccer Association) to which SYSA are members. The program was created in order to increase players’ exposure to the sport and to increase the level of competitiveness. There is an “evaluation” session for all players interested in playing EDP.
This session is at the end of the Spring season in preparation for the following Fall season. This is not a tryout but rather an opportunity for the league to understand the players enrolling in the program so we can best assess rosters, EDP divisions and overall number of players interested.
Teams will practice 2 nights per week with games on Saturdays.
