Soccer training program: So you want to reach the highest possible level in soccer, right? You to develop your soccer skills and improve your game and be able to play in intense soccer games with thousands of fans watching? You want to play college or pro soccer? Well, you’ll need to follow a consistent soccer training program if you want to play college or professional soccer.
What’s a good soccer training program? It starts with mastering the soccer ball, once you do that, and that isn’t easy, then you can look at improving other parts of your game, whether it’s passing or finishing. But first you’ll need to get comfortable with the soccer ball.
So comfortable that you can make the ball do whatever you want. Can you juggle the ball a thousand times with both feet? Can you dribble the ball in and out of cones at a fast pace with both feet? Can you control the ball on the ground and in the air?
From Michael Cunningham: Recently I was given a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel down to to two premier league training facilities to endure a premier league footballer’s typical full day of training. First we travel to Southampton Football club, to meet with the head nutritionist, followed by a workout with the strength and conditioning coaches, then a technical session out on the pitch, ending with a full recovery session. Day two takes us to Brighton and Hove Albion, where we get a striker specific training session with none other than Allan Russell, England’s head attacking coach.
If you want to play soccer in college or at the pro level you’ll need to master ever aspect of control, touch and dribbling of the soccer ball. So before training starts, get to practice early or on your off days spend time juggling the ball and knocking it against a wall to perfect your skill. And try to play with players who are better you, so you can learn from them and copy what they do well.
