The Technical Soccer Program (M. Murphy)

This part of the program is designed to help improve players' technical ability, tactical speed, and most importantly, getting them comfortable with the ball. This program will help develop faster play on the ball, confidence on the ball, quick decision making and improve tactical awareness. Also, it will help teach players how to train on their own.

The program is developed to teach individual play and builds up to small group play. It deals with individual and small group techniques and tactics while encouraging players to play faster, smarter, and under pressure.

Speed and Conditioning (B. Murphy)

In this portion of the class players will work on a personal speed and conditioning program with SAQ focus. This portion of the session will be aimed at developing a players explosiveness, agility, & awareness with and without the ball.

Goalkeeping (P. Reece)

In this portion of the class goalkeepers will work with GK Director Paul Reece on all GK related techniques. The GKs will then be incorporated into shooting/finishing drills with the field players
