10 WEEK PROGRAM OVERVIEW
To provide players with the basic structure of the training unit in accordance with Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model developed by Canada Soccer Association.
As trainers and coaches our goal is to teach the importance of warming up for injury prevention, to prepare your body for optimal training performance and to be ready to start the game from the moment of kick off…
During warm up, we will work on fundamental movement skills: running, hopping, skipping, multidirectional runs (sideways, backwards, shuffles etc.) jumping and balancing.
Players LEARN best when they are having FUN!
Introductory games will incorporate the skills that are the focus of that week. For example, when working on dribbling, we will create conditions that the player needs to score by dribbling into the zone etc.
Each session will focus on skills and drills. We will take a specific skill, simplify it and break it down into smaller activities to allow lots of repetition with more demonstration, instruction and individual feedback.
Each session will end in a final game with minimal conditions to mimic a real game as much as possible. This will serve to reinforce the specific skills practiced during the session.
