Elite Performance Program

Shield

OPEN TO PLAYERS FROM ANY CLUB

Elite Performance Training (EP) teaches complex technical soccer skills and soccer-specific movements. We apply both of these pieces to significantly improve technical ability, increase athleticism, reduce risk of injury, and most important, work towards becoming a complete soccer player.  Developing the complete soccer player takes a lot of work.  But there's no better feeling than when that work pays off.  For serious soccer players, it’s a lot of work.  And a lot of fun! We’ve designed a highly effective program that combines the crucial physical and technical soccer skills needed to develop the complete player.

PROGRAM FOCUS:

Ball Mastery Skills

  • First touch to control a ball out of the air
  • Feints and dribbling moves to take on and beat defenders
  • Proper ball striking technique to find the back of the net with accuracy and power
  • Passing technique to find a teammate's foot every time

Athletic Performance Skills and Conditioning

  • Speed needed to chase down attackers
  • Raw strength and balance required to shield the ball from a defender
  • Powerful jumps to win balls in the air
  • Explosive quickness to beat an opponent to the ball
  • Agility and coordination to respond to sudden changes in the center of the field

NOTE: Masks are currently optional (IDPH All Sports Guidelines).
