We are excited to once again announce several player development clinics with our Challenger coaches this Fall. This season’s clinics include 4v4, Skills & Drills and Goalkeeper sessions. Details of each session are as follows:
The 4v4’s recreate, as much as possible, the playing
environments in which the world’s greatest players
first learned and then developed the skill required
for top-level performance:
– Plenty of individual possession, ball control and touches
– Trying new skills without fear, ridicule, or recrimination
– Taking players on and challenging defenders
– A vibrant, creative and fun atmosphere
Players will play in groups of 4 and rotate through different field layouts, all designed to develop different areas of their game.
These technical skills sessions are designed to improve your foot skills and technical ability in any situation on the field. The session will be broken down into 4 sections;
– SAQ (speed, agility, quickness)
-SSG (Small Sided Games)
During our technical skills sessions are our aim is to get at least 1000 positive touches on the ball.
At these Goalkeeper sessions, players will learn the technical skills needed to be successful and tactically aware in goal. The sessions will be high intensity in a fun and challenging environment. We will practice in game-like situations and the players will have a lot of 1-1 guidance. . These sessions are designed for all abilities interested in goalkeeping, whether goalkeeping is their favored position or they are looking to learn it as a new skill. We aim to grow players’ confidence in between the sticks as well as their competency.
