BF&M 17&Under Player Development League

 

The BF&M 17&Under Player Development League (17&U PDL) provides a valuable community program, which keeps young boys and girls involved in a sport they love and on the right path to a successful future. The PDL focus is on developing player’s tactical skill, fitness level and competition specific training. Players learn to be proficient in the performance of both basic and sport specific skills and will have the opportunity to learn these skills under a variety of competitive conditions during training. There is now an emphasis on individual development and preparation will reflect each player’s individual strengths and weaknesses. The BF&M 17&U PDL is one of our most important leagues, which fills a gap in the community by offering young men and women an environment which encourages and requires discipline, focus, communication and teamwork.
