Youth Development Academy

About the program

The Youth Development Academy is the first step in the competitive pathway.  It is an 8 month season with built in breaks and periods of flexible attendance.  Training is twice a week and lead by professional, USSF licensed coaches.

Teams of 12-14 are built and compete in the OYSA fall and spring Development League, with games being played on Sundays at Delta Park.  Teams can also expect to participate in 1 or 2 summer jamborees with the summer period also serving as an opportunity for coaches to observe players for team placement in August.
