Benefits of Futures Training:
Players are coached by BSA licensed coaches in a fun environment.
Players are taught proper soccer technical skills which are crucial to their development (i.e. shooting, passing and receiving, moves, fakes and dribbling).
- Players become familiar with members of BSA’s select coaching staff and their methods.
- Players receive a verbal evaluation of their soccer strengths and weaknesses and receive feedback about ways to improve their weaknesses.
- Players meet and interact with other recreational players in BSA’s program.
- Players will be introduced to 11 different moves and fakes. (The V, Matthews Inside, Matthews Outside, Scissors, Step-Over, Drop the Shoulder, Pull-Push, Half-Moon,
the L, the Cruyff, the shark fin and the Cut).
First Session – Dribbling
Participants will work through a free-dribbling warm-up. The main focus during warm-ups will be to get every player touches on the ball with no pressure (no defensive players). Focus is on player technique, repetition and touches. Player’s will be introduced to three different moves. For the main portion of the “dribbling” session, players are broken into small groups (3 or 4 players per group) and work through 3-5 different dribbling stations. Training concludes with a small-sided game.
Second Session – Passing
Players will work through a free-dribbling warm-up. Again, focus is on player technique, repetition and getting each player touches on the ball. New moves will be introduced, and old moves revisited. For the main portion of the “passing” session, players will participate in two passing drills. Players will be encouraged and pushed to use proper passing technique. Training concludes with a small-sided game.
Third Session – Shooting
Players will work through a free-dribbling warm-up. Player’s will be encouraged to keep working on and perfecting the moves learned in prior sessions, as well as try new moves. For the main portion of the “shooting” session, players will be broken up into small groups (3 or 4 players per group) and will work through four shooting stations. Players will be instructed how to use proper shooting techniques. Training concludes with a small-sided game.
Fourth Session – Game Day #1
Players will work through a free dribbling warm-up and move straight into a “relay race” style dribbling drill. This session will emphasize 1v1 and 2v1 attacking. Players will participate in a fast, fun and exciting game that begins as a 1v1 game to goal, then moves into a 2v1 game. Both games are designed for players to use and transfer what they have learned throughout each of the sessions, and bring those skills to fruition. During this 1v1 and 2v1 game, players will be pushed to use and demonstrate the moves, fakes, and skills they have learned in previous sessions. Training concludes with a small-sided game.
Fifth and Final Session – Game Day #2
Players will begin the session with a game called “release the hounds”. For the main portion of the final session, a 2v2 to 3v3 or 4v4 “Bayern” game will be played. This is fun, fast-paced game that provides players with lots of opportunities to score and be successful.
