Week 1: DRIBBLING.

This week's session explores dribbling techniques in order to gain better ball skills and manipulation. It doesn't matter how fast you are, if you can't dribble you will be ineffective on the field. The session will include proper techniques, how to beat your opponent, learning tricks and fun team games, finishing with scrimmages.

Week 2: BALL STRIKING.

Ball striking is the art of kicking the ball cleanly in order to create power, accuracy, swerve and spin. The techniques are simple but seldom taught, so with this class your player will be one step ahead of the game and be able to pass and shoot with confidence. The session will include lots of shooting drills and games designed to enhance the ball striking skills we'll be teaching, as always followed by a fun scrimmage.

Week 3: PASSING.

One of the most important aspects of a soccer player's tool box is their passing ability. We teach the correct passing techniques, explore which parts or the foot are used for different kinds of passes, as well as the importance of the weight of each pass. The session will include passing games, small sided passing games followed by scrimmages.

Week 4: DEFENSIVE TECHNIQUES.

Defense is the first line of offense, so it's important that players understand how to win the ball from an opponent and then to begin an attack. Being fast, big and strong helps as a defender however, the correct defensive body positioning, tactics and timing are far more important. In this session we teach correct positioning, how to trap your opponent, how to win the ball from your opponent, tackling technique and how to start an attack. We will have lost of individual defensive games, small sided defensive games followed by scrimmages.

Week 5: SHOOTING.

If you don't score goals you can't win games! This very important session teaches your player the fundamentals of shooting, hitting the targets and how to score in 1 v 1 situations. This session will involve lots of shots on goal, from different angles, to attacking and finishing crosses, as well as penalty kick competitions. 

Week 6: CONTROLLING TECHNIQUES.

Being able to kill a ball instantly as it is passed to you is a difficult skill. Done correctly, it allows the player to do whatever they like with their next touch. Done incorrectly, it could lead to a loss of possession or a tackle. Here we teach proper technique for controlling balls from all angles, heights and at different speeds. Once mastered, controlling the soccer ball allows your player to be a cut above the rest. The session will include technical training, games and scrimmages.

Week 7: TEAMWORK

This session will be devoted to teamwork. We want all of our players to be individually creative and empowered but also to recognize the importance of playing as part of a team. We work on situational awareness and how the teams functions to be successful. This session will include small sided games based around team ethics and scrimmages.

Week 8: COMBINED SKILLS.

This final session of the program will explore all the best bits of the previous seven weeks. Coaches will work on areas where the players may need extra coaching, alongside the fun bits the players really enjoyed. There will also be an extended scrimmage to round of the program prior to medal presentation.
