What is Advanced Ball Mastery?

Ball Mastery comes from repeatedly working with the ball at a game speed that pushes you to the edge of your comfort zone. As a result, players are able to act more instinctually on the field to elude pressure or beat a defender for a goal scoring opportunity. 

We have all seen exceptional players like Ronaldinho, Messi, Tobin Heath and Marta make defenders look foolish with their deception and creativity with the ball. They developed this on the streets, in their backyard, in pick-up games and brought that confidence and unique skill set to training and games. They were able to mix in their unbelievable ball control with their technical and tactical brilliance at the appropriate moments.

These sessions will focus on many skillful actions that create ball manipulation habits for players that become second nature through constant repetition. By developing more skillful players on the ball we allow the mind to think less about the ball and more about the game and movements going on around them (tactics) which are the focus of the team training environment.
