Training Objectives

We will work on developing proper body mechanics for greater success in passing, dribbling and shooting. Training will include a series of exercises that will help players improve their agility, balance and coordination. Through small sided games (2v2s 3v3s, 4v4s) players will be coached on how to better read the game and how to properly apply the principles of defense and offense in different tactical situations. We will work on improving field awareness, and players will be challenged to apply their critical thinking skills to solve problems faced on the field.

Four Points that We Value in Developing Great Soccer Players

Four Points United places strong emphasis on four key pillars of player development, these include technical, tactical, physical and psychological. Technical: Players that struggle with technique have a difficult time implementing their ideas into the game as they often find themselves without enough time to make good decisions. Therefore, we begin with fundamentals, placing strong emphasis on individuality to help players in developing proper body mechanics in passing, receiving, dribbling and shooting. Tactical: As players master their technical abilities we start to see a progression in their tactical game as players are better able to control the ball in ways that allows them to create more space and time for themselves. The time and space creation gives players the ability to implement their game ideas and we see an improvement in decision making as it relates to the team tactics. This creates true collaboration among players which leads to real teamwork. Physical: Athletic attributes such as speed, explosiveness, endurance, agility, balance and coordination are critical to a player's success. We insist on developing physical attributes that help players with the movements that are replicated in the game. A true development in the above physical components also helps players to pass, receive, shoot and dribble more confidently. Psychological: Confidence, enjoyment, sacrifice, endurance, and a strong mind to face adversity on and off the field are critical for a player's success. Confidence is build through hard work, commitment, discipline and enjoyment of the game. We provide players with true assessment of their personality and regularly evaluate their psychological performance in a competitive situations. We help players develop responsible attitudes toward other players, coaches, and referees as well as to how to manage situations out of their control.
