The technical training is the foundation of the Academy. The training is conducted in small groups with a coach to player ratio of 1:6. Within this program, the players are taught the fundamental components of the beautiful game. They learn the proper mechanics for dribbling, passing, control, shooting, attacking and defending. They then learn to take each component and apply these mechanics to multidirectional drills and competitive situations in an attempt to make these movements habits that they can then apply to games as they advance as players.
The Ball Mastery program is designed to encourage creativity and build self-confidence on the ball. Training targets specific skills in a pressure free environment allowing players to learn through trial and error. The program will encourage players to not fear mistakes but rather to work with the ball to a point where it feels comfortable and instinctive. The Ball Mastery session inspires players to get excited about trying new things!
