Recreational Player Development Program
The Sachem Intramural Development Program (IDP) is open to all of our intramural players and is offered in partnership with Long Island Professional Soccer. IDP makes for a GREAT STARTING PROGRAM for those looking to advance into our Academy program. Many players have been identified through the IDP program to take that next step toward their overall development.
Our IDP program is additional to your current program and offers professional training by the LIPS organization. This program will focus on the basic Technical pillars of the game. Our goal at this age is to help players develop to their full potential. The skill level at these ages is of no indication of what the skill level will be at the older ages. Our approach is designed to challenge the more committed player who is looking for an environment that challenges them individually, helps them work cooperatively with their peers, while introducing age appropriate game like activities.
We will continue to encourage and work with all the players to be comfortable and confident with the ball at their feet. This particular environment allows all players the same opportunity to reach their full potential and prepare for the future ages.
New to the Travel and Soon for our Interleague program is our Academy style Goal Keeper training option offered by the Sachem Slammers.
Teams can now register their Goal Keepers to get professionally trained by the Sachem Slammers. Training will focus on the technical and philosophical aspects of goal keeping. Stretching and mental preparation are also aspects that will be covered, as well as what to do the other six days of the week to give goal keepers an extra edge. Goal Keepers have a view of the entire field during the game and can play a valuable role to the success of a team in more ways than one!
Our goal at this age is to help goal keepers develop their full potential. The skill level at these ages is no indication of what the skill level will be at the older ages of 16-18 years old. Therefore, we will encourage and work with all goal keepers to be comfortable and confident will the ball, and with the unique role and position that they play. This environment allows them the opportunity to reach their full potential and play a key role in guiding their team.
