You don't just train to train. You train to get better!
Do you know how long it takes your players to recover and adapt from the game? How about a Fitness session, Threshold session or Maintenance session?
How hard can you train today?
We'll start by helping you get the training load of your sessions right. How can you plan the ideal training load for your players based on their age and your team's schedule. You'll learn about the 7 different training session types you need to use as a coach throughout your season.
John has spent years refining the warm-up. For the 1st time we’re sharing a 2-part system to help you run the ideal warm-up for your players:
1) Do you need a shorter, sharper intensive or a longer extensive warm-up?
2) Set ups for the most common training objectives to get more out of your 1st exercise
Prepare your players for the most explosive moments of the game
Train your players to improve their speed, agility, & quickness. You'll learn how to incorporate what we call foundational movement development to improve your players athleticism and injury resistance.
Give your players the edge in goal scoring situations. Straight sprinting is the most frequent action in goal scoring situations and we'll show you how to train for soccer-specific maximal speed. You'll get age-specific distances, work to rest ratios, sets and reps.
Repeated Sprint Ability
Can your players perform repeated sprints in quick succession when the game calls for it? We’ll show you how to train for repeated sprint ability and take the guesswork out of it for you.
Technical & Tactical
We’ve all seen hundreds of exercises shared on social media, but how often do they include age-specific work and rest durations? You'll get a set of criteria you can use to improve your technical and tactical training exercises so they replicate the game environment.
Fitness: Game for Physical Development
Do you know how long to play 3v3 or 4v4 for your U14 team vs your U16s or at the college level?
Are your rest intervals correct during your 7v7 game or your 11v11 game?
You’ll get a simple, but powerful 4-step action plan to accelerate the demands of the game during training along with age-specific work, rest, reps, and sets for each game size to increase your players' fitness
What you do in pre-season can determine your team's success the rest of the season.
We’ll give you a step by step guide to plan out your pre-season including:
- Peak load and game size for each week during pre-season
- Maximum match minutes and progression for each exhibition
Our goal is to help your team perform both during the tournament & have time to adapt after the tournament to increase your team’s success the rest of the season.
It’s critical that you adjust as a coach. We'll teach you how to:
- Taper before the tournament
- Rebuild after the tournament
