SPRING GOALKEEPING SESSIONS
Our Goalkeeping Sessions start back in April. The program will again be run by the hugely popular Adam Lewis and assistance will be provided by Kenny Archer, Wendell Hannaford, Scott Steffen (all GK training licensed) and Emily Faust, the current York College of Pennsylvania keeper and ex-Penn Legacy standout.
WHAT: PL Goalkeeper Training Sessions
WHEN: Dates - Every Thursday evening starting April 6th and going through to May 25th.
6:15-7:15 - u9s and u10s, and u11s
7:15-8:15 - u12s, u13s, and u14s
8:15-9:15 - u15s and older
WHERE: The Quad
WHAT TO BRING: A ball, gloves, water, and hopefully GK pants or old sweatpants for any diving on turf.
CONFLICTS: We think that all our keepers who are dedicated to the position should put these sessions as a priority each week. If this presents a conflict with your team training then please talk things through with your coach. I am confident we can figure out the best solution for all in each situation where conflicts may arise.
Any questions on our GK program should directed to Seamus at email@example.com and questions about the art of goalkeeping should be directed to any of the coaches above or specifically to Adam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
SPEED & AGILITY TRAINING
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.
