For the 2015-2016 Season FC Wisconsin will be introducing the Technical Training Program for our U7-U14 Programs. This is a unique initiative by the club which is designed to teach players how to train technique individually at no added cost.
As a Club it is our goal to develop the best possible players technically who have a comfort level on the ball from an early age. With that being said, one of the biggest factors that determines the long-term success of any player is the amount of time the player spends working on technique individually, outside of team training sessions. This Program will help players with their continued development while also placing a high emphasis of accountability upon the player.
Every 2-3 weeks the coaches will introduce several skills to the players. The skills will involve one player and one ball. Players will then go home and on their own, work on the given skills. The exercises and activities will change and progress every few weeks to challenge the players and provide variety in the skill sets being developed.
Players will then be responsible to count their touches and record how many touches each day until they reach 10,000 touches. Once they reach 10,000 touches, they will receive a small reward for accomplishing the task.
They will return the given sheet below with all their recordings, and both the player and the parent will sign it.
The program is totally optional but will help tremendously toward long term player development!!
