Skills and Strikers Advanced Training Program (U9-U19)
The ASA Strikers and Skills Advanced training program is specifically designed to improve players’ overall technical ability, comfort level with the ball and confidence to finish chances on goal. The program will focus on teaching players proper technique and providing thousands of repetitions of the necessary technical skills for more comfort in the ASA progressive posession style of play. More specifically, players will have repetitions properly changing direction, ball manipulation in tight spaces, ball striking, slotting, volleying and creatively putting the ball into the back of the net. Our dedicated group of professional coaches will utilize unique attack-oriented activites to simulate game situations, including crossing and finishing, receiving and turning, 1 v 1’s, and a variety of combination play. Players will gain an increased understanding of attacking play in and around the goal, while building a strong self-confidence in creating and scoring goals. The program is open to our most motivated and dedicated travel players that want to improve. Non-travel program players must request a technical staff recommendation to participate.
Training is open to U9 - U19 motivated and dedicated players.
