Player Development Initiatives (PDI)


In order to comply with the US Soccer Federation’s youth soccer requirements, Cal South is providing its membership with the Player Development Initiatives for the 2017-2018 & 2018-2019 seasons. The PDIs came into effect in the 2016-2017 season, but will be MANDATORY come the new season for all age groups.

Starting with the 5U age category up to 19U, the initiatives will affect the field size, number of players on the field (both infield and goalkeepers), Build Out Line, goal size, and the size of team rosters.
