WINTER TRAINING

Description: Winter training for grade 1/2, 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8 players looking to be challenged in a positive, performance based, player-centric technical training environment. Includes ten weekly sessions run by New England Revolution Academy coaches focusing on technical and tactical skills development in both activities and small-sided games (e.g. ball mastery, improvisation, dribbling, passing, receiving, attacking, defending and finishing). Sessions are co-ed and will strive to balance the development levels of all players.

Benefits: More touches on the ball results in improved skills and more decisions. More decisions result in more chances for learning and development leading to improved confidence and comfort with/without the ball. Improved confidence results in less stress, more success and more fun!
