By Staff, 10/10/17, 10:45AM EDT


This week focuses on 1v1 and ball mastery

Play. Inspire. Unite. 

The Player Development department continues to put together a practice for coaches to use with their players across the province.

Each week will focus on one of the three LTPD development stages at the Grassroots level, which includes Active Start, FUNdamentals, and Learn to Train.

In this week's session, the Player Development department has focused on 1v1 and ball mastery. 

The players have an opportunity to play ‘Crab Soccer’ as they work on their physical literacy. After this, they will play 2v2 school soccer where there are two games taking place across the area for players to navigate and make decisions.

This is then broken down in to a 1v1 environment where players play quick games to progress to the MLS or World Cup Final.

Finally, they finish off with a 4v4 game where the players will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned in a small sided game environment.
