This program has the goal of helping soccer players improve on their speed and agility (mostly physical, but also mental [Soccer IQ]). It also focuses on giving them tools/ideas to be able to have to train on their own.
We will focus on soccer-specific movements (with and without the ball) to improve the players’ speed and agility. Each week, the participants will be e-mailed/texted some “homework” to help accelerate their improvement.
We will be using agility ladders, balls, resistance bands, parachutes, etc. during training. Training will be hard but also fun.
After the 6 training sessions, each player, upon request, will receive an assessment via email, including suggestions on how they can improve.
On the first and the last week we will measure players to give them goals to improve, and the ultimate goal is to have our players be quicker/faster in time for the State Cups.
We will run this for the 1st time in the Spring.
Cost: $50 (Inaugural Discounted Price) to be paid before the 1st session on April 9th
Only 30 spots available for this Inaugural Session
WE WILL BE RUNNING A FREE “TRIAL” SESSION TUESDAY, 3/26 FROM 6-7.. ALL ECU PLAYERS WELCOME
