We offer a Competitive Teams Structure Based on European Professional Academies
We aim to change the way young players are developed in North America. We want our players to be technically excellent and intelligent and independent decision-makers on and off the field.
To achieve this, we strive to provide our young players with positive learning experiences that fosters a love of the game and facilitates opportunities to develop their talent to it's greatest potential.
As they grow, we will continuously provide them with pathways to the next level.
Our players follow the training methodology of Professional Club academies in Europe. 1v1 Soccer FC teams train between 2-3 times/week and play one competitive game.
The program includes all 4 corners of development:
- Technical skills
- Intelligent Decision/GameUnderstanding
- Speed and Co-ordinated Movements
- Psychological Training
It is our belief that to develop skilled young players within the current Canadian soccer environment, we need to provide enhanced and fully integrated training programs that exposes young players to quality coaching instructions earlier, train them on a more frequent basis and has access to them over a longer periods of a season.
These training principles have proven successful in other countries and we apply the same principles within the 1v1 Soccer FC Academy Teams Program.
Players are tested every 3 months throughout the season. We use this data to track player improvement or areas for development in all aspects of the game.
