OUR PROGRAMS

The Edmonton Drillers Youth Soccer Club is a member of the Edmonton Interdistrict Youth Soccer Association (EIYSA), the Edmonton District Soccer Association (EDSA) and the Alberta Major Soccer League (AMSL)

The focus of the Drillers youth programs, along with other EIYSA clubs, rests primarily on developing the physical and mental skills of youth players to successfully perform in the competitive soccer ranks.

The Drillers have four programs that hone player skills from Grassroots through Adult:

The Drillers have a player development program in place designed to build and hone player skills as well as an active coach management program designed to ensure we get the best possible coaches. With this Drillers' players have an opportunity to continue to play within the Club once they are done their youth career.
