Help Your Player Prepare For The Season

Getting in Soccer Shape for Fall Season
It takes at least six weeks for a player to get into soccer shape. Below are videos for all positions within a soccer team. In order to create a better team, individual players must have a more in-depth understanding of their positional role, fitness levels and the mentality it takes to play in a team environment. By creating a better self, players inherently improve their team. 

All great players begin as students. Through dedication to the sport, and the self, athletes propel themselves to greatness. In order to continue your technical development, you must be willing to put in the work.
