About Chesterfield Advanced Development Program

The objective of the training at Chesterfield Strikers is to provide our youngest players with an environment that promotes learning, creative thinking, problem solving, skill development, and a love for the game. The curriculum is designed to be age appropriate and to teach the fundamentals of the game in a small-sided environment. 

The CADP is the transition between the recreation and travel soccer within the Chesterfield Strikers.

The program offers a youth soccer environment that will improve not only their skills, but their approach to the game as well. The CADP is a year long developmental program: Fall Season (late-August to mid-November); Winter Training (mid-January-February optional and will be an additional cost); Spring Season (early March to mid-May).

"The structure for our ADP benefits all the players" added Youth Development Director, Erwan Le Crom. "The format allows us to continually focus on skill development and getting all the players as many meaningful touches on the ball as possible. Sometimes in traditional formats, competition revolves around records, wins/losses, teams, and league games. We like to make practices and games competitive by challenging the players to combine with teammates, try moves, express themselves, experiment in a fear free environment and work together with and without the ball."

The Chesterfield Advanced Development Program (CADP) is divided into 2 age categories:

  • U6 - for those players born in 2013/2014
  • U8 - for those players born in 2012/2011
