Hatheway Orthodontics – U12 Enhanced Program

U12 Enhanced Program:  The 2018 season will mark the 5th year for the FDSA Enhanced program at our U12 age group (athletes born in 2006, 2007 or 2008).  The Enhanced Program has replaced our previous Division I and Premiership competitive programs at U11 and U12 in order to provide athletes with a more player-centered and development-focused league and training format.  The Enhanced Program sees approximately 60 boys and 60 girls take part in a competitive league played within the West Region.  FDSA teams will compete against New Maryland, Oromocto and other West Region clubs.  The aim of this program is to give players a chance to hone and perfect their individual skills prior to trying out for the highly competitive U13 league and competing in the NBSL.  Teams will aim to practice 2-3 times each week with 1 game each week. The Enhanced Program may also undertake special projects over the course of the summer, including opportunities for competition against clubs from outside of the West Region as part of a ‘Travel Team’ program.

The U12 Enhanced Program teams will be selected through an open tryout process scheduled to run April 20th – May 11th.

U12 Enhanced Tryouts Schedule – TBA

We encourage all interested players and parents to attend the information session being held at the Fredericton Inn on Wednesday, March 14th at 7:00pm.  At this time you will be able to meet the coaches and have questions answered by FDSA staff, coaches and Program Directors.

Anyone interested in trying out for the U12 Enhanced Program must be registered NO LATER than Saturday, March 24th. Registration can be completed online (starting March 12th and ending March 24th) through the FDSA’s new PowerupSports portal https://fdsa.powerupsports.com or in-person at the FDSA Office (see Registration Info section for more information).

FDSA will once again provide keeper training to the keepers of the U12 Enhanced Programs. Training will take place once a week at a minimal additional cost to the participant.
