Individual Player Development
Practices are specifically designed to focus upon taking players technique to the next level. The first few weeks of practice will be for our coaches to recognize where our players are technically and then look to break them off into skill specific groups to work on areas that have been highlighted to improve their overall level of play.
Goal Keeper Training
The club’s competitive youth goalkeeper training program, allows players to work with similar level keepers and develop their fundamentals and look to further their current skills. The first couple of practices will be spent observing and evaluating the level at each age group, and allowing our coaches to provide the most appropriate practices and exercises for the players.
Parisi Speed School
FCSC and Parisi are looking to strengthen their partnership through increasing the exposure our players get, so we can help improve their speed, agility and power in both soccer specific and overall movement techniques. Players will learn movement mechanics, stretching techniques as well as individual activities that can be utilized on their own to improve performance.
Pick Up Soccer
Essentially free play soccer. The aim is for this to become a player organized station, where they decide their own teams, and manage the games themselves. No coaching, no stipulations just small sided free play soccer. This provides an environment that maximizes players touches on the ball, exposure to an expressive environment that allows them to try the latest move by Neymar, Morgan, Ronaldo or Lloyd. Small sided teams providing a great platform for all players to have an impact on the outcome of their games.
