Player Development Iniatiatives

In August 2018, U.S. Soccer rolled out Player Development Initiatives (PDI's). The PDI's aim to create an environment for youth players to grow and develop their soccer abilities. The most notable PDI includes small-sided game standards. 

Small-sided standards are regulations for youth soccer games played with less than eleven players on each team that include field and ball size, game length and special rules. Few players on the field will allow players to be more involved and provide more opportunity for development. The PDI for small-sided standards of play is implemented across the country.
