The LIJSL Development Program is aimed at developing skills and game fundamentals for our young top level players.
The goal of our Program is to give each player the opportunity to develop to the best of his/her ability. At the Developmental level, the main focus of the program is the development of the players’ technical ability. This is done through weekly training sessions driven by the latest in coaching methodology for young players. Coaches will teach specific technical and tactical goals set by our curriculum based on the guidance of our National Team Program. This training experience is augmented by participation in various playing opportunities in tournaments or other travel/training experiences. We believe that this approach will give each player the greatest likelihood for a successful, rewarding and enjoyable experience.
