Skills Development Program Details
From October to March, players meet once a week at Bechtel and/or RIM Park’s indoor facility for instruction on the basic skills required in recreational and competitive soccer. The skill development sessions are 1 to 1.5 hours in length, depending on program, and are conducted by Club Coaches, skills development instructors and rep level coaches.

Advanced Recreational Opportunities in 2014: Players participating in the U9 and U10 Skills Development Programs may choose to try out for their age group’s 2014 Development travel team that participates in the Southwest Regional Soccer League (outside the WMSC house league), or register with the WMS house league. The decision on team placement is based upon the best situation for each individual player’s skill development.
Players trying out for a U10, U11 or U12 team in the fall are strongly encouraged to enroll in the appropriate Skills Development Program.
