Our most popular program offering, the Player Development Academy (PDA) is a seasonal 6-week program that is only open to SYSA recreational 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. Overall, the PDA is a great program that provides players with professional coaching in a fun, competitive environment.
