What is EDP Futures?

 

EDP Futures is the initial stage of the EDP program, establishing a focus on the development and fundamentals of a soccer player in an unpressured environment. The Futures program is open to soccer players from the age of U7 to U10. The aim of the program is to install a sense of enjoyment for playing soccer with a commitment to grassroots.

EDP Futures comprises of small sided games working in teams of 4v4, 5v5 and 7v7. By using these small sided games players are encouraged to take more touches of the ball which is a key stepping stone on their pathway to becoming a better soccer player. They will gradually become more comfortable with a soccer ball at their feet, as well as becoming more technically skilled players.
