Club Development Days provide a platform for U7 (2013) and U8 (2012) players to participate in a festival-like atmosphere where they can play match conditions against teams from different clubs.
The goal of these days is to foster growth in the players’ technical skills, but for the players to have fun doing so.
“We want these kids to fall in love with the game to go back and train with their clubs, play games with their clubs, and continue to play the game for as long as possible,” LIJSL Technical Director Ronan Wiseman said. “That’s what we want to foster at this age.”
The Club Development Days are at no cost for participating clubs, and each team gets to play in at least three separate match conditions during the event.
As of March 13, 2020, the Long Island Junior Soccer League has suspended all activities. The suspension includes Club Development Days.
