What Is KDP?

KICS Development Program (KDP) is an instructional program for kids ages 4-12 years, that introduces and develops the individual and team skills to prepare young players for our competitive travel teams.  Participation in KDP includes 8 practices with a professional coach, bi-weekly scrimmages (instructional games) and an Under Armour uniform.  Players are divided by age groups to ensure safe, age appropriate practices and scrimmages; KDP 4-5 years, KDP 6-8 years and KDP 9-12 years.  All classes are offered as co-ed.

KDP is set up to allow players to participate in both the KICS Community League and KDP.  Participation in both programs gives any player a great opportunity to develop their skills and comes with discounted price!

Register for both programs on the community league registration page here.

KDP Curriculum


KDP combines fun, positive coaching with age appropriate games and skills to ensure development of fundamental soccer skills for young players. It consists of one professionally instructed soccer practice per week and bi-weekly Saturday games (instructional games).

Practices
Each practice will focus on a basic skill and provide the player with an introduction, execution and progression of that skill.  All practices end with a one ball game to try and execute the skill of the day.

Scrimmages
Give the players a chance to work towards a goal and allow them to experience the feel of a game like atmosphere and competition.
