Monday – DEFENDING - Defending is the key to success. Remember, if you don’t get scored on - you can’t lose the game!
On July 18 we will be working on proper body positioning while defending and we will teach our players how to re-direct opponents to dribble away from the goal.
Tuesday - PASSING - In order not to play defense, you have to possess the ball. In order to possess it, you have to pass it. In order to connect 20 passes, you can not make a mistake in the previous 19 passes!
On July 19 we will be working on passing technique and different types of passes depending on the area of the field
Wednesday - FINISHING - You rarely get more than just a few opportunities to score. Take hundreds of shots in practice so you can score that one shot in the last minute of the game!
On July 20 we will be working on different finishing techniques and movements in the attacking area
Thursday - 1v1 - If you beat somebody 1v1 you are creating numerical advantage! However, chose carefully where you are doing it!
On July 21 we will be working on 1v1. Players need to be aware of where on the field they are doing it and what is risk and reword of it!
Friday – All-In - Good soccer player is a player that is good in every aspect of the game. However, excellent players have one or two areas that they are dominant in!
On July 22 we will be working on identifying what are the strongest areas of our campers so that they can develop them even more in the future
