Default LIJSL PDP vs LIRR Pre-Academy

My daughter is U14 and now playing in LIJSL Premier Division. I was wondering if someone could advise which of the following two programs would provide better training and better competition- LIJSL PDP program or Long Island Rough Riders Pre-Academy (formerly known as Premier (all-year round).

Thank you.

Save your money. The most valuable training is what your daughter is doing when she is not at a team practice. The players who usually reach the higher levels are the ones putting in their own work. Working on her touch and ball striking with both feet.

I agree players can make great strides working on their own. However they also can benefit greatly with supplemental training with quality coaching and other motivated players. That you'll find with PDP, much less so RR.

OP if you want to make the investment then go with PDP.

That's what her club team should be giving her. Why pay extra for that ?

LIRR pre-academy to what? They don't have academy teams. Sounds misleading to me.

Maybe the OP's kid is behind, or wants to work on specific things that aren't easy to work on in a team practice situation, or want to improve to make a higher level team. Besides, as we know, plenty of clubs do a pi$$ poor job of development. Plenty of coaches just let the teams scrimmage all practice while they are on their cell phones. Long term the OP would need to address that kind of situation but that doesn't devalue the benefits of extra training in the meantime.

I believe they are saying they are a LISC feeder academy

The parent said she was looking for better competition for her daughter. If she's behind why is looking for better competition. That's the problem people don't read.
The programs you are promoting do not let you work on specific things.
To the OP. If you feel your daughter needs to be challenged more or the club training is not good she should be looking for a new team.

It isn't always so easy to make a move up the ladder at that age.

But the broader dilemma - "pre academy" (which isn't more than a marketing term and LISC is sh* show right now) vs staying at whatever her current club is (quality unknown) and do a supplemental program. If those are the two options go with the latter and look for a better club for a possible move after the fall season.

"it isn't always so easy to make a move up the ladder at that age".
Long Island soccer parent advice at its best.
