Clinic and Player Development Program Philosophy:
The Empire United Player Development Program is the most innovative youth training program in Western New York. As the only member of the US Soccer Development Academy in all of WNY, the PDP is directly influenced by the curriculum and initiatives as identified by US Soccer and our colleagues in Major League Soccer. Through these relationships, Empire United has direct access to all of the cutting edge information and techniques afforded to our National Federation as well as those of a professional club.
The Empire United PDP focuses on all aspects of the game, including ball mastery, speed of play, coordination, balance, and movement both with and without the ball. The objective of the PDP is to replicate the speed, tempo, and environment of the Empire United's Development Academy Teams' training sessions, and to provide some of the coaching and information that are afforded to Empire United at the professional and national levels.
Our PDP and Clinc staff is committed to conducting specialized training sessions to teach the fundamentals of the game, with an emphasis on a repetitive learning process. Individual skill development is the main focus of the program, while also using small sided-games and clinical demonstration from our current club and Development Academy players to enhance these lessons and enforce proper technique at a mastery level.
