Program Overview

Westside Timbers Development Program Overview

2020/2021 Soccer Year - runs May 2020 - April 2021 - the information below is for the upcoming Soccer Year.

The Westside Timbers Development Program (WDP) provides training and teams for boys and girls born between 2011-2014 (U7-U10), who want to take their game to the next level. This program prepares players for competitive soccer and improves recreational players' skills.

The Westside Timbers Development Program is not meant to replace a player's participation in recreational soccer - but to enhance it. It is expected that players will participate in recreational soccer in addition to playing WDP.

All coaches will be Westside Timbers staff, who follow a curriculum focused on skill development for this age group. We believe players will develop to their best potential by providing them with the basic building blocks and strong technical skills.
