Next week (August 29th) starts our 8-week Coach and Player Development Program (CPDP) through Reading United. This is a mandatory program for 2006, 2007 and 2008 teams on the following nights:
All CPDP sessions will be at Lorane Elementary from 6:00 PM until 7:30 PM. The program will run through the week of October 17th. Please arrive early enough to allow time for parking, walking, and getting organized. When parking, please do not block any driveways or park in anyone’s yard.
Players should wear shin guards and bring water along with the appropriately sized ball as they would for a regular practice.
For first-time travel players/coaches:
Reading United instructors will give each head coach a packet with an 8-week curriculum that they may keep. The program is typically run academy style where coaches will demonstrate or practice the lessons with their respective teams.
CPDP nights will also use the RainedOut system for any changes or cancellations due to inclement weather.
*Beginning Friday, September 9th there will be optional CPDP nights for any players birth year 2009 or older to attend. These nights will take place on Fridays and will be run using Signup Genius to offer specializations for coach training, player development, and goal keeper training on certain nights. Please watch for a future email containing Signup Genius links and dates for each specific training.
If you have any questions, please contact Brandon Putt.
