By utilizing station-based training, facilitated by National & Provincial licensed ASA staff coaches, this player-centric development program is for Boys & Girls born in 2011, 2012 & 2013.
Parent-volunteer help is required for all groups and will receive ongoing support, mentorship and resources from Skill Centre staff coaches. Those parents helping for the entire program will receive a credit, equivalent to 50% registration fee, towards spring programming or spring break camp in 2021.
