Our Speed and Agility program is proving to be a smash hit. This upcoming session will be the last one of this off-season as it will take us into the actual outdoor soccer season. Take advantage of this special club offer and give yourself the best possible preparation for the spring season.
The importance of speed and agility training in the sport of soccer is that it is a fundamental element in everything a player needs to do. When it comes to technical expertise and comfort on the ball, we must backtrack to the player's first touch. Before that is their balance and footwork before the ball even arrives. The same can be said of what happens as soon as the player has the ball. Speed and explosiveness is the great separator. it is with all this mind that we came up with a soccer action specific training program in conjunction with the experts at The Nook. It will work on conditioning for sure, plus injury prevention, but it will also focus on change of direction, foot speed, agility, balance, coordination, and posture. Included in the sessions will be pre and post testing so that improvements can be measured and quantified. All in all, it should prove to be an excellent program for all our players who attend.
