Dover Soccer initiated their EDP program in the Fall of 2010 to provide kids with a natural stepping stone from House League into the beginnings of Travel League.
EDP is currently offered in the Spring Season to Kindergarten to 3rd Grade children & in the Fall Season to Kindergarten to 2nd Grade children.
EDP consists of one practice per week, typically lasting 60 minutes, that will include individual ball handling skills and small sided games. DSA will structure the EDP program to be fun and teach basic skills, while also offering the opportunities for young players to put these skills to use.
EDP Coaches are encouraged to have taken at least the NHSA U6-U8 Youth Module. This course entails attendance at a class that last approx. 6hrs. Details on this course, upcoming dates and course notification sign ups can be found here:NHSA Coaching Courses
Resources for DSA EDP Coaches can be found here: DSA Docs
Games for DSA EDP Practices can be found here: Practice ideas
So, we bought these 'lovely' new nets for EDP..thankfully we had Mr. Rogers on hand as he was the only one to figure out how to wrap the darn things up again!
