The WMSC Skills Development Program has been designed to provide an environment for younger age groups – U8 through U12 – that stresses skill development and potential opportunity for additional competitive experiences.
Skills Development Program Details
From early October to March, players meet once a week at Bechtel and/or RIM Park’s indoor facility for instruction on the basic skills required in recreational and competitive soccer.

Players participating in the U9 and U10 Skills Development Programs may choose to try out for their age group’s 2013 Development travel team that participates in the Southwest Regional Soccer League (outside the WMSC house league), or register with the WMS house league. The decision on team placement is based upon the best situation for each individual player’s skill development.
- Tryouts for the 2013 U9 Development teams will be held in early January 2013, with head coaches announced and teams formed in February 2012.
- Tryouts for the 2013 U10 Development teams will be held in the fall of 2012 on September 23rd and 29th (see "2013 U10 Travel Team Player Assessments" for details).
Players trying out for a U10, U11 or U12 team in the fall are strongly encouraged to enroll in the appropriate Skills Development Program.
