Player Development Training Objective
To provide weekly individual technical training sessions.

To be conducted by professional trainers training, this program places an emphasis on the development of footskills and using various surfaces of the feet to maintain possession, change directions, evade defenders, etc.


 

ON THE FIELD, sessions will consist of an active warm-up and technical skills introduction / practice to be followed by a progression of small-sided activities and games designed to encourage the player's application of technical skills.

 

Players are split up into two age groups 8-10 and 11 & older to facilitate training in the most age/ability appropriate settings.

 

Please have players to sessions 5 minutes early and be sure to bring water.

 

Players need to bring a ball and are required to wear shin guards.

 

Conditions permitting, all sessions will take place on the Upper Field at Independence Park.
