Training from Home

Many children show interest in practicing and improving outside of normal practice and game time. Here are some links and drills to help you be a Parent/Coach from home. We hope you find them useful.

30-20-10s
These are great soccer conditioning as they replicate the pace of the game. Warm-up at an easy jog for 2-5 minutes before you start the 30-20-10s: Jog for 30 seconds - moderate run for 20 seconds - full out sprint for 10 seconds. Repeat this sequence for 10 minutes, working up to 45 minutes by pre-season.

PASSING
Ball and a Wall:
Spend another ten minutes passing against a wall. Use both feet. Use one touch, two-touch, and three-touch pass backs. Pass back with both the instep and inside of feet. Include fake kicks. Keep feet moving and your weight on the balls of your feet. Receive balls with your body square behind the ball and work on accuracy with your passes.
