Player Development Camps and Clinics

PLAYER DEVELOPMENT CAMPS & CLINICS PHILOSOPHY

Empire United is committed to providing player development opportunites to all players, including both members and non-members of our club, within our Western New York communities.  As a member of the US Soccer Development Academy, these programs are directly influenced by the curriculum and initiatives as identified by US Soccer and Major League Soccer clubs and academies.  Empire United continues to have access to current methodologies and information afforded to our National Federation as well as our partners in Major League Soccer.  Our Player Development Camps & Clinics allow us to share these assets with the players, allowing us to improve and assist with the development of as many players as possible.

The Empire United Player Development Camps & Clinics focus 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 these programs is to replicate the speed, tempo, and environment of MLS club and academy programs and Empire United's Development Academy Team training sessions, and to provide some of the coaching and information that are afforded to Empire United at the professional and national levels.

Empire United's Camps & Clinics staff conduct 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 Development Academy and Empire United players to enhance these lessons and enforce proper technique at a mastery level!
