More on the Striker Training: These clinics are designed to develop and train attacking players in the various techniques of finishing. There is no question that goal scoring has become a special art at the highest level. In order to get there, technique, repetition, and confidence are just a few attributes that our players must master. This series of clinics demand our players to finish from every situation possible…(bending balls, finishing off of the run, off of the dribble, off of the turn, volleys, shooting for power, shooting for accuracy, crossing and finishing, heading). It is about scoring goals, and for all players interested in becoming more confident in front of goal
More on Goalkeeper Training: The goalkeepers will improve in their mobility, reading of the game, shot-stopping, handling, footwork, crosses, and diving. They will also be taught how to become more consistent/confident, and also develop communication and leadership skills. We as a club continue to develop fantastic players by specific positions and GK is no different.
More on Speed and Agility Training: Outside of sport specific training, agility training is one of the primary determining factors in predicting a players success in a sport. Sports are rarely played straight ahead, and often require changes of direction in which lateral movements are used in several planes of movement simultaneously. Agility is a neural ability that is developed over time with many repetitions and research has shown that an increase in speed and strength was not as effective in developing agility as participation in activities specifically designed to develop agility. Agility training provides the athlete with many performance benefits including: neuromuscular adaptation, improved athleticism, injury prevention and decreased rehabilitation time. A comprehensive agility program will address components of agility such as strength, power, acceleration, deceleration, coordination, balance and dynamic flexibility.
