Atlanta’s youth soccer players have lots to look forward to this spring; the Atlanta Silverbacks Elite Youth Club has created many new opportunities for players to reach the next level and improve their game, while still having a great time! The Silverbacks Elite Youth Club consists of the Silverbacks PDP/Super-Y program (May-August) and the Silverbacks Youth program (August – May).
PDP/SUPER-Y PROGRAM TRYOUTS
The Silverbacks PDP program sent six teams to the Super-Y League North American Finals in Tampa last November. The tournament provided invaluable experience to the participating players, including national recognition, competition against the best teams in North America, and important exposure to coaches from across the country. The PDP program will be hosting tryouts for the 2007 squads on January 27 at Atlanta Silverbacks Park. Tryouts are open to players from all clubs in the U13-U17 age groups.
Members of the Atlanta Silverbacks Youth Club and Georgia FC will have the $25 registration fee waived. Players should register as normal, but click on the “check” option when applying online; then make sure to wear your Silverbacks or GFC game jersey to tryouts and the fee will be waived.
