The main focus of our training sessions is to help improve players technical ability, taking care of the soccer ball, first touch, passing, movement on and off the ball to help them keep possession for as long as possible, with the intention to attack and create more goal scoring opportunities. Hard work is key!! It’s the only way to compete against talent, so we make sure to instill that in them. Defending and attacking together as a team.
