2. Physicality

Soccer is a very physically demanding sport, which means attention must be paid to teaching these attributes. It must also be recognized that between the ages of 9 to 15 are a crucial period in the physical development of a child. This means that the correct instruction and practice must be given which will not exceed a child’s age-specific capabilities, but will still successfully train and shape their physicality. The benefit to a child of such instruction is clear: this training not only crosses over into other sports, but provides worthy lessons for their future physical well being.
Thus, the training sessions will encompass the following:

  • Speed
  • Strength
  • Agility
  • Coordination
  • Timing
  • Flexibility
