Little Vikings & YDP

The Little Vikings clinic is the earliest introduction to organized soccer on the Gjøa Pathway. With each weekly practice, the Little Vikings develop a love for the game through fun and engaging activities, while establishing fundamental skills that young players need to begin their soccer journey.

Whether on a path to travel soccer or refining their game for success in recreational leagues, the Youth Development Program (YDP) offers girls and boys born 2009-2014 professional instruction to improve their soccer skills. Gjøa licensed and experienced coaches teach a weekly clinic focused on ball mastery, technical skills, and game understanding in a fun and supportive environment.

Little Vikings and YDP have Fall and Spring seasons outdoors and an indoor season in Winter. See the current season below.

FAQ – INDOOR YDP

Where is Socceroof?
14b 53rd St 3rd floor, Brooklyn, NY 11232 (g-map)

Is there parking there?
There is very limited parking in the onsite parking garage and very limited street parking.

Can parents enter the facility?
Because of occupancy limitations, we highly encourage all parents to drop-off and return five minutes before the end of the session to pick-up. For those that need to stay, there is very limited first-come assigned seating for $5 per person paid to Socceroof. They have closed a field for seating and the nominal fee partially helps offset their lost revenue. There’s no admittance to the rest of the fields areas, so parents/guardians may not watch the clinic.

What are the Safety Protocols for Indoor Soccer?
Socceroof has a comprehensive approach to safety. Read an independent pathologist’s report here and watch a video about their safety protocols here. They include:

  • over 100 windows and industrial fans providing complete ventilation to the facility, even in winter
  • a fresh-air heating system that does not recycle indoor air
  • deep cleaning/sanitizing throughout the day and overnight air filtration/sanitizing fog
  • hand sanitizing, temperatures taken, and health checks upon arrival for everyone, including adults. Anyone with a temperature of 100+ or any signs of illness is sent home
  • capacity limitations, spacing, traffic flow measures, and contact tracing procedures 
  • large roster teams are assigned to double fields to spread out
  • strict mask policy for staff, coaches and players at all times, and Gjøa players must wear masks even during play
  • players encouraged to distance whenever possible at all times
  • Gjøa Coaches and Socceroof staff are tested every two weeks
  • transparency with our families about any possible Covid contact within the program, communicating clearly and thoroughly

Will there be Winter Clinics in the new year?
Yes! The Winter Clinic will start in early January, and registration will open soon.

What’s the clinic cancellation policy?
We build one possible session cancellation into the pricing of clinics. If a session is canceled due to weather we will reschedule it if we can, but if we cannot reschedule we don’t refund one missed session. If two sessions are missed we will prorate a refund for one of them.
