Welcome on the PDSA Soccer website!
PDSA Soccer (Player Development Soccer Academy) is an independent training academy, which focusses on the development of skills. Players from all clubs are welcome at the PDSA training programs. PDSA Soccer is not a club, as we don’t have any teams that are competing in leagues and tournaments (except small sided tournaments). We are focussing on training and player development only. This means we work along side of your current club’s program. We offer additional training opportunities for players who are serious about become their very best! In our organized group sessions we blend players from different teams and programs into one training group, allowing players to make new friends while improving their foot skills.
To see the training programs for a location near you please select the location in the menu bar under “PDSA Training Locations”. If we are not having a training location near you, please consider our online programs. These programs are offered through our website, which means anyone in the world with an internet connection can participate in these programs!
NorCal’s objective for each PDP player is to assist and help them to train on his-her own (home, at the park, or before team training). This page will provide a library of video & explanation for each exercise. By watching how the pro-club players train, the PDP player has a model to copy and learn from.
If you (PDP player) want to reach your highest level of soccer potential, it is VITAL, that you train extra time in addition to your team training. Every day you should try to train 20 minutes (at least). If you do it, that will add up to a lot of hours in one year. Just do it!
Enjoy it and good luck!!

NorCal have teamed up with the App based program TopYA, giving our PDP players free access to a ‘NorCal PDP’ skill path. Our coaches will be monitoring the leaderboard and offering prizes to the players that are most active on the skills path. See below for our PDP leaderboards.
Anyone not in the PDP program who wishes to get access to the various challenges can download the ‘TopYa! Soccer’ App for free and purchase the PDP Skill Paths. Enter the NorCal Premier code 2776.
