Player Development Plan
In SASL we have four primary programs that make up our Player Development Plan (PDP).
We begin with our youngest players from ages 2 to 4 and teach them to love the game of soccer through Future Futballers! At age 5 we introduce them to basic skills and conditioning in the Spring and Fall Recreation Programs. Players showing strong foot skills and higher level commitment to soccer at ages 7-12 are encouraged to move beyond Recreation soccer and into the Youth Academy. They Youth Academy is a year long program specific to training and conditioning in order to prepare them for Competitive soccer play at ages 10 to 19. Competitive Soccer is also a year long commitment where our teams compete against other NCYSA sanctioned teams at Division 2, Division 1, and Premier levels of play. As Seniors we want to see players move on from Competitive play to College or Professional levels such as our local semi-professional team San Lee Futbol Club!
The end goal for SASL with all players is to instill in one a strong level of commitment to something bigger than yourself, build character, strengthen respect for others as well as ones self, integrity, and the overall recognition that hard work and fun can go hand in hand!
