IDP Soccer Overview
The Lee Mt. Vernon Sports Club (LMVSC) Instructional Developmental Pathway (IDP) is an instructional based program led by our Director of Recreation and Player Development, Justin O’Shell. Through the following six sessions, run once a week for a continuous six-week period, your child will be introduced to technical aspects of the game through fun and engaging, age-appropriate activities specifically created to challenge your player while keeping a smile on their face!
The LMVSC Instructional Developmental Pathway engages our youngest players at two and a half years old and takes them all the way through eight years old where they will have the option to move into competitive travel soccer or remain in the recreational soccer program.

Soccer Tots Academy U2-3
This introductory program to this beautiful game has two different age groups. We begin with our first age group, the youngest, who are at least two and a half years old up to three years old. In this program, the players are introduced to the soccer ball, while also working on basic coordination and social skills. While maintaining a two and a half-year-olds focus can be a challenge, this program has been designed to do just that for a 30-minute period. Parents are encouraged to help keep their player engaged through the first session, and slowly drift away off of “Soccer Island” by the second and third week of sessions to witness the growth, development and socialization of your child!
Our second group of Soccer Tots is our three-year-olds to three years and eleven months old. As a parent, the first thing you will notice is how excited your player is to get onto “Soccer Island” and how the social and physical development is a world of difference from only a few months prior. With the attention and focus of each child being held a little longer, the 30-minute session is utilized to spend much more time with the ball at each child’s foot. The children are taught basic technical skills on how to stop the ball while it is moving, how to change direction, and how to score goals!

Patriots Developmental Academy U8
The players are put into a structured training environment and separated into teams for training and game purposes; with the right reserved to move players around if necessary. The focus of this program is individual technical development through 1v1 scenarios. The players are constantly encouraged to dribble and take players on, with the idea being that they will learn much more about ball manipulation from dribbling and moving than they will from passing and being stationary. At the end of the Spring season, the players are encouraged to transition into the LMVSC Travel Soccer Program.
