U7/8 Advanced Development Program

Sign up today for the Richmond Kickers Advanced Development Program (ADP) for U-7 and U-8 players.  Kickers ADP is an instructional program dedicated to talented and enthusiastic youth players.  The program is offered to young U-7 and U-8 players to provide a quality and enjoyable soccer environment that will enhance their skills, coordination, and understanding of the game.  ADP is responsible for developing over 80% of the Kickers U9/10 travel players.

Unlike other ADP programs, the Kickers do not require players to tryout.    Alternatively, players wishing to participate must register their child in advance for the ADP program.  Space is limited and the program is expected to be in high demand so registering early is recommended.  This program is open to players born in 2012 and 2013.


Sessions are held twice a week and will consist of group instruction and small-sided games.  Following a two week evaluation period, players will be split into teams for the remainder of the season.  Licensed professional soccer coaches from within the Kickers technical staff and Kickers professional players will conduct the sessions.  Players are expected to attend all training sessions and games.
