Program Description

Weekly training sessions designed and run by UEFA 'A' licensed coaches, and former professional players, with a specific focus on the skills required for particular positions on the field. The sessions will focus on the following elements:

  1. Striker/Finishing Sessions: Learn and refine the nuances of playing the striker position. These sessions will focus on movements, and runs required of the striker position, holding up the ball and playing with the back to goal, and, of course, on finishing all types of situations in front of the goal. Attacking minded midfielders and/or wingers should consider this session as well to work on all types of delivery into the final third, as well as on finishing from various ranges.
  2. Defender Sessions: Work on the specific skills required of defenders. Everything from defensive shape, to timing of tackles, clearing balls out of the air, initiating the attack, dealing with service into the box of all kinds, and all other skills required of defenders.
