Supplemental Player Development Programs
In addition to offering competitive teams for players to play for each year, Seattle United offers supplemental training programs. These are are a big part of a players development and use a variety of training methods and experienced coaches to maximize a players performance. By exposing players to different methods, professional coaches and different challenges, the aim is to create well-rounded and experienced athletes from these fun environments.
The “PDA” is a seasonal 6-week program that is only open to SYSA rec players. The PDA is a program that is divided into Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring “sub-seasons”. Each training session focuses on a specific topic to stimulate the technical and tactical development of each player.
The Seattle United Speed, Agility, Quickness (“SAQ”) program will help players build the skills, habits, mentality and technical foundation necessary to achieve a new level of soccer speed and control, as well as game day success and personal achievements.
These programs teach players the fundamentals of the goalkeeper position. Anyone interested in learning more about goalkeeping in a fun, challenging environment, should join. Common topics covered are shot-stopping, crosses, 1v1 situations and distribution.
