Our development philosophy for each player is unique. Individual needs are influenced through a holistic process and understanding of our four-corner model – 1. Technical Execution, 2. Tactical, 3. Physical and 4. Psychosocial/Lifestyle. We believe these four areas are connected and support each other to effectively develop and influence a player’s growth to reach his or her fullest potential on and off the field.
Individual training sessions are designed for players looking to develop throughout the year. Each session is customized to suit the players abilities. Coaches will assess each player and create a personalized development plan. Feedback will be provided throughout each session to help maximize each players’ full potential, including dribbling, receiving, passing, ball striking, first touch or 1v1 domination.
Small group training, up to 6 players, is also available to provide extra support to our FC Puma soccer community.
