Program Details

Junior Select Program – Levels 1 to 4 (U6 to 13):

These levels will focus on developing the basics of technical, physical, and tactical components of soccer (speed, dribbling, game intelligence, etc.). To achieve this, we rely on functional  exercises and intermediate/elite level games. It is inspired and influenced by training youth all the way up to the professional level.

Train to Train – Level 5 (U14/15):

This level will focus on the development of basic strength and proper techniques in resistance training, as well as core stability, flexibility, and agility training. We will also focus on general principles of attack and defense, identifying the strengths of each player and individual positioning on the field.

Train to Compete – Level 6 (U16/17):

Level 6 will focus on developing muscle size necessary to gain strength and power. We will increase the intensity of the resistance training
by using slightly greater weights, with emphasis on pushing to maximum potential and improving on weak areas. On the tactical side we will focus on understanding the role of each player position and teaching tactical movement with and without the ball.

Train to Win – Level 7 (U18/19):

This level focuses on all areas vital to playing soccer at an advanced level. Team tactics will include an explanation of different formations,
as well as defending and attacking from set pieces and when in possession of the ball.  Physical development goals at this level are building strength, speed, agility, core strength and flexibility, through personal goal setting and testing.

Train, Get fit, Play – Level 8 (U20 to 23):

The highest level will focus solely on continually improving size, strength, and power, as well as keeping the players technical skills up to date. By the end of this program you will have developed all areas of your physical, technical and tactical game and have the tools necessary
to be the best soccer player you can be.
