KC Trojans Development Program follows Canada Soccer's Long-Term Player Development model.
The program is offered to boys and girls between 8 and 10 years old.
Our Technical Director leads the Development Program, with the assistance of Luis Puentes and other qualified volunteer coaches. Practices are generally held 2 times per week, for 45 to 60 minutes per session. Players are expected to attend practices on a regular basis.
This program is also further assisted by International Soccer Academy Canada. They provide 10 technical sessions to each team throughout each season. All players are required to go through two assessments prior to the season starting. Based on the assessments players are placed on the appropriate team that closest matches where they are at developmentally.
Practice days, times and locations are determined based on the availability of the coaches and facilities. Development teams participate in EIYSA league games, which generally take place once per week.
