Regional Development Program

The Regional Development Centers will be focused on identifying and developing regional U9-U12 boys and girls in a unique training environment pooled with multiple geographically aligned regions.

This will be achieved by providing a variety of events supplemental to their current training & team environment. This program is for those who wish to push themselves up the NEFC pyramid.

The Regional Development Program (RDP) aims to identify, bring together and develop U8-U12 elite players through our NEFC regions, partner clubs, Inner City programs and external players. The RDP provides opportunities for players to train with the very best players within an expanded region (encompassing multiple NEFC regions) as well as gain access to high level coaching and training environment that is supplemental to their current team training and environment. It is an excellent opportunity for players looking to maximize their development and for those who wish to push themselves through the NEFC pyramid. The program is open to both NEFC and non-NEFC players looking to be a part of a unique high training environment with opportunities to compete against top teams both locally and internationally.
