Surrey United Development Academy (SUDA)

Skills MAX Program



Space in all academies is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis only. Registration for any age-groups will close once capacity is reached.

SUDA Skills MAX Program Overview

The 2021 / 22 Surrey United Development Academy (SUDA) Skills MAX program is a 16-session training program being offered at Surrey United SC, Monday nights on CAP #1 for both male and female players in the U7-U14 (2008 - 2015) age-groups. This program will span over the 2021 / 22 fall/winter soccer season, starting in September and ending in February. The program is designed to maximize enjoyment, participant confidence and player improvement.  

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic SUSC will implement their SAFE RTP Curriculum, which will correspond with the guidelines & restrictions from ViaSport, BC Soccer, and Canada Soccer. While we are close to climbing out of the pandemic restrictions, SUSC must still follow the contractual instructions from the City of Surrey. The overall program will operate within the SUSC Return to Play Plan. The current RTP criteria allow for open physical contact and fun gameplay.

This SUDA Skills MAX program will be geared towards motivated players looking to advance their current skill and playing level under the guidance of the Surrey United SC Technical Staff. The SAFE RTP Curriculum will involve a broad range of skills and drills in technical/tactical development of the game including speed and agility, shooting and finishing, defending technique, creative attacking, and so much more. The weekly training is designed to directly assist the players in their personal playing performances throughout their soccer season. There will also be introductory physical training and testing for these young soccer players.

Program Details

Speed Development and Testing

​​There will be an emphasis on basic kinetic movement patterns, the speed of running with and without the ball (acceleration/deceleration). SUDA Skills MAX program participants will go through simple speed tests throughout the program and scores will be kept to measure improvement over the year(s).


Player Assessment Report

​​All participants completing the 2021 / 22 SUDA Skills MAX program participants will receive a detailed personal assessment in March 2022 which will provide a complete report of their individual season progress and development.

Skills Based Training Curriculum

The SUDA Skills MAX program will incorporate 3 key pillars of individual skill development:

  • Speed, Agility & Quickness and other kinetic movements related to dribbling and ball control;

  • Skills & Dribbling; repetition and consistent focused activities;

  • Passing & Shooting; creative passing sequences and lots of shooting!


The SUDA Skills MAX program will consist of station-based training sessions and will follow a comprehensive and progressive program. There will also be an inductive approach to teaching, which will allow players some ‘open training time’ designed to spur high levels of creativity and enjoyment with learning the game. The SUSC FREE PLAY training concept has been a huge hit over the last couple of years and we are excited to offer it again within this SUDA Skills MAX program. The technical training is incredibly beneficial to young and developing soccer players and the technical staff will do a great job, as always, with making it an enjoyable learning experience for all participants that contributes to the player's overall technical, physical, social, emotional, and mental personal growth.
