We will focus our training, development, and evaluation of players on the 4 major components that make up a complete soccer player and closely monitor each player’s development.
Taking in to account the LTAD stages, from 8 or 9Y of age the foundational sporting skills are introduced and developed. Players experience different positions, by rotation rather then specializing, to reduce injury and burnout.While more competitions and tournaments may be introduced, the focus remains predominantly on training.
It is only after 15 or 16 Y of age that the focus moves towards training to compete and to win. Elite athletes will now be identified and introduced into intense training suitable for international winning
