What? The Nitros Development Program is designed to provide young players between the ages of 7 and 10 the opportunity to develop fundamental sport and movement skills in a welcoming, fun, and safe environment. At this stage of development we prioritize the individual player and their ability to master the ball therefore we focus on creating activities and games that present players with opportunities to dribble, run with the ball, receive, and turn with the ball.

When? Players participating in this Program will train two to three times per week and play games against other local clubs throughout the season.

Who? This program is designed for players who wish to commit time to develop their skills through a structured training and games program. Players will be evaluated by head coaches of their respective age groups and be placed into a pod that will aid in their development. We want to make sure players are in an environment that will challenge them but also where they can see success during training sessions & games. 

How? Contact the Manager of The Nitros Development Program, Erin Lennox to schedule a time to come meet the coaches and try the program.
