Concepts will be introduced throughout the week that will teach the participants how to build on their areas of weakness and maintain their strengths
Our program will give players an introduction into the fundamentals of football tactics and provide players with a detailed breakdown of the phases of the game. Position specific analysis will help players better understand the roles and responsibilities throughout all moments in the match.
