ESS NY (East Side Soccer) has two development paths for players that are both player-centric and not focused on winning trophies at the expense of player development.

The first path is a recreational program that plays once a week on Saturdays in the Fall and Spring (Kindergarten, 1st-8th) with one practice a week (1st-8th grade).  

The second path is a competitive travel program, the Advanced Development Program (ADP) that starts in November and ends in June.  The ADP program focuses on preparing players to play soccer at the highest levels.  Teams practice twice a week and play games over the course of the season and participate in tournaments within New York State.  Many coaches in the ADP program have US Soccer Licenses and extensive coaching experience at the College and High School levels.
