The Development Pathway League

 

The Development Pathway League aims to keep youth players in the game by allowing recreational players on All Star recreational teams and under-developed travel players on competitive teams to participate in a more suitable environment to perform in. So players continue to play, enjoy and learn the fantastic game of soccer rather than lose the majority of their league games and leave the sport.

The DPL's goal is to allow 1/ Higher level hand picked recreational players the opportunity to play at a higher more appropriate level in a non pressured environment that doesn't report scores or have league standings. 2/ It allows travel / competitive players the opportunity to participate and or new competitive teams. The goal being that we are giving players the opportunity to get more touches on the ball in a more developmentally appropriate environment.
