Discoveries Soccer Club and ROAR Sports Enter Partnership


January 25, 2017 – Discoveries Soccer Club and ROAR Sports are delighted to announce a new partnership moving into the 2017 season. Starting this February, DSC will offer the Youth Development Program (YDP) at Westminister Park in Rock Hill, SC. The Youth Development Model offers a structured and professional player pathway for the more advanced ROAR player looking to expand their soccer experience.The DSC Youth Development Program (YDP) is the perfect opportunity for Roar players to improve their skills. YDP provides the environment for players to develop their social , technical , physical and mental skills. Emphasis is placed on development as opposed to winning with a heavy focus on technical elements during practices. This program caters for all abilities to the beginner to the intermediate player.

“We are thrilled to enter into this relationship with ROAR Sports. ROAR has been a very important community program in York County and it is our pleasure to be in a position to commit to them and their staff. Program Director LuLu has been a former DSC staff member and we had no hesitation working with LuLu and Andy to help support their programming and help develop the talent that exists in the ROAR membership. ROAR will be added to our thriving YDP platform, as all programming will be tailored to align with the values of the ROAR program. Thanks to everyone at ROAR for putting their trust in DSC, we are excited to see where this partnership takes us,” said Dave Carton, Discoveries Soccer Club Executive Director.

“We are definitely excited though to get our kids involved in a program like the YDP program where our kids can get a chance to bridge the gap between travel and recreational soccer. While learning from great experience/qualified coaches, having the chance to see what the next level looks like and to still be able to be a part of the ROAR ministry aspect of regularly doing the devotionals… learning how to integrate faith, truth and life in the program (which most families find important for their kids) and then having the opportunity to live out their faith on the field whether at practice or competing against the other programs,” said LuLu Merril, ROAR Assistant Director.
