Winter PDP (Player Development Program)

What is PDP?

HFC United’s Winter Player Development Program (PDP) provides HFC United, as well as non-HFC United players, the opportunity to train for an eight week session throughout the winter months.  Whether playing in the Fall, Spring, or both seasons, our PDP sessions provide a forum to continue player development during this typically off season period when training is not a normal occurrence.

The PDP curriculum is specifically developed so as to be geared towards challenging each player with skill, age, and talent specific activities. Our trainers are carefully selected from the greater Baltimore area and are provided a carefully curated plan.  By its very design of development first, some of the content will be new material while some content will be topics presented to the players in the past, but now the limit on time and space will be more demanding. 

HFC United feels that the development of its players is best described as a marathon. It takes countless hours to develop ball mastery and good decision making. We welcome all players to take advantage of this amazing opportunity and fun training experience!
