The SDP is our fall program for all the Seals teams that are not playing club soccer yet.  We generally have our teams play in the SDP before playing club for at least one season, before making the jump into club soccer.  The Seals Club teams are a much larger commitment of time, energy and finances.  The SDP is a great place for developing soccer players that get everything they need developmentally in the Villa Park 7v7 league, as well as our Seals training sessions, SWAP technical sessions, and futsal sessions.  The SDP also leaves room to accomodate other fall activities like homework in the new school year, AYSO, Boy Scouts, or any other fall activity that your child takes part in.  Many of our younger Seals players often participate in more than just soccer and the SDP was designed with that in mind.  Weekends are free in the SDP, and the training schedule allows room to modify your child's training schedule when necessary.  

 Training & Game Schedule (Subject to Change)

  • One SWAP session (Every Other Week) – Jefferson MS
  • Games on Tuesdays or Wednesdays between 5-8p
    • All games played at Villa Park under the lights
  • One Seals practice session per week – Temple City HS

Seals registration payments are all made through the Stack Sports Portal during registration on our website.  A payment plan can be set up online through your bank account, or you can work directly with me to arrange other payment options by check/cash. In addition to Seals registration there is also registration with the league and the cost of uniforms: 

  • Villa Park League Registration: $80 (Included in $360 Seals Registration)
  • Uniforms & Gear Costs: $0-$205 (Depending on Order, black shorts and red socks only necessary gear/uniform item.  All other gear is optional)
