Full Time Players Program– is a year long structured training program for players aged 9 to 14. This program is designed for talented and committed young soccer players. In a positive environment, players are systematically trained and educated on the five components essential to becoming an effective soccer player (Technical, Tactical, Physical, Psychological, and Character).
When you become a member of our Full Time Players Program, you join a class that is loaded with enthusiastic and disciplined students seeking to become the best they can be. In a positive and friendly environment, you spend the entire year progressively improving your entire game while also building friendships and having fun. Because this program is year-round, we are able to give detailed attention to all of our students and give them training that offers all aspects of being an effective soccer player. This program is open to players that consider soccer their primary sport and are looking to play at the highest level.
The goal of this program is to provide training that will produce students with exceptional soccer skills and first-class mental skills. Players will become comfortable with the ball at their feet, tactically aware, physically strong and mentally tough.
The FTPP is like a gym membership. You come as often as you can and you do not need to leave your team to join this program. You simply use this program as a tool to improve your own individual game.
Returning students do not need to fill out an application form and are welcome to register at any time.
