YPT under-12 Training Program


YPT is establishing an advanced and unprecedented under-12 training group this August.

Any European academy director will tell you the key developmental years for a young player are between the ages of 8 and 12. It is during these years, before physical growth becomes accelerated, when players are most capable of learning, retaining and refining the technical skills of the game.

YPT has friends and contacts at a number of high profile professional European clubs such as Real Madrid [Spain], SL Benfica [Portugal], Manchester United [England], Club Brugge [Belgium], AC Milan [Italy], Ajax of Amsterdam [Holland], Bayern Munich [Germany], PSV Eindhoven [Holland], Inter Milan [Italy] and others. Over the last 15+ years we have spent significant time at these clubs for the sole purpose of learning how young players are trained and developed at the highest level of the game.

YPT has been extremely fortunate to have doors opened that don't normally get opened for outsiders. We feel a strong obligation to pass on as much of this information as we can to those who can use it most: North America's players, coaches and parents which is why we are excited to be offering this program.

100% of the training offered by YPT is identical to that be done with some of Europe's best young players by some of Europe's best trainers.

Selected players will be trained at the highest level possible using the best and latest training philosophies, techniques, exercises and methods.

Program Details

YPT's under-12 International Training Program (ITP) is a long term training experience that will take place, periodically, over the next several years in different parts of the soccer world with future training destinations to include the United States, Europe and South America.

The concept for the ITP is to bring a small group of talented young American players together with talented young players from top soccer countries from around the world for an enjoyable, cultural, intensive and productive training program.... all based on the European Model of Youth Player Development.

The first International Training Program will take place August 2019, for one week, on the East Coast of the United States in the area of New York-Philadelphia-Washington DC.

Selected players will be trained at the same level as players their age at some of Europe's best known academies. Additionally, selected players from the United Sates will benefit from playing, training and getting to know players from other cultures and countries. Players from outside the United States will get to enjoy the game in a new environment, make new friends, improve their English language skills and visit some of the United States' most interesting cities and sites.

If you are interested in more information about this advanced training program please email us at info@YPTusa.com and we will get back to you.

If you know a player who would like to participate in this advanced training program the next step will be to complete this player profile. Once it has been submitted, we will be in touch.


We have appreciated the interest, time and effort you have invested in bringing out the best in Aidan's skills across domains, and look forward to your continued work with him!


He would be interested in coming again. I was glad to see that it was a well run session- not a fly by the seat of your pants or too large a group to get some individual focus.
