2015-16 Crossfire ADP Program
A Player's Pathway to ECNL and USSDA

Beginning its second year, Crossfire’s Advanced Development Program (ADP) is an initiative designed to provide the optimum environment for the region’s top youth soccer players by emphasizing development through quality training and limited, meaningful competition. Through structured session plans and consistency of coaching methodology, all Crossfire ADP participants will receive additional development opportunities, with sessions set to follow a uniform training philosophy, as the club strives to develop individual players as well as teams. The curriculum includes a significant technical emphasis, with increasing expectations for the tactical application of those skills, while also offering outlets for elite-level match play and supplemental travel.
