Are you looking for ideas for individual player training during the current team training hiatus brought about by the Coronavirus outbreak?
Given the inability to get together and train in a group setting, there now exists an opportunity to focus on individual technical training. When players are eventually allowed to return to training in larger numbers, they can return with the same (or even greater) level of technical sharpness, if they have the motivation and willingness to dedicate a portion of each day/week to individual technical training.
We have compiled a list of YouTube links that will give players ideas on varying ways in which they can continue to train on their own. We invite NYSWYSA club players, DOC’s and TD’s to send us a link to their favorite individual training regimen(s) so we can share it with others. Please send the link to: email@example.com. Our hope is to provide a central resource where players can go to get fun ideas for training on their own. We have also included some other soccer related links that may be of interest.
Players often ask their coaches; “How can I improve my place in the pecking order?” or “How can I catch up with or surpass the players who may be playing at a level above me?” One way to do this is to improve your mastery of the ball. By doing so, it raises the level of almost every other facet of your game. Your activity in the coming weeks/months can be a terrific opportunity to continue to raise your level of play by focusing on improving your technical ability.
