Here’s a brief overview about Soccer Academy & Training and Our Philosophy:
Soccer Academy & Training (SAT) brings a unique spirit and environment to every city, town or club we work with. Our staff shares a passion for the game that is transferred through to all the participants. Players will be allowed to express themselves, play without fear of making mistakes, be encouraged to make their own decisions in sessions and discover the enjoyment of football.
We look to learn from all people we meet allowing our programs to constantly evolve around the core beliefs that SAT is built on. We understand that all children learn in different ways and our coaches are trained in delivering our syllabus to all types of personalities and abilities so that each player can achieve their highest level of performance.
By improving your technical ability, you will be able to play with more confidence and become more effective. Through the delivery of specific techniques performed regularly at the highest level, players will learn to dominate 1v1 situations by being able to produce tricks and turns and become more confident with the ball at their feet. Players will also be taught the fundamental techniques such as dribbling, passing, receiving, finishing, defending, heading and goalkeeping. To enhance the delivery of our technical sessions, each player on our courses will use the latest innovative coaching equipment.
Enjoy your time on the ball; this will allow you to make good decisions. Stay active off the ball; this will make you an asset to your team. We will develop the player’s understanding of how to dominate their opponent and also how to combine as a team.
For younger players our 4v4 games create lots of opportunities to practice their tricks and turns under match conditions without fear of making mistakes. Older players will be able learn how to use their tricks, turns and passing range in the three areas of the field. Aiming to change the direction and pace of play, using width and depth to make play unpredictable and keep the opposition guessing! All activity is delivered in relation to the development age of the players.
Take responsibility for looking after your body, what you consume and how you train. Players will learn specifically how to train their bodies for the demands of the game. Focusing on the fundamental movements of agility, balance, strength, speed and stamina. As players get older they will learn how their game position can dictate their physical training. Players will also learn how fuelling and preparing their bodies off the field will give them the best chance on it!
Developing a winning mentality requires strong character and a positive attitude. The whole environment at a SAT is positive. Players of all ages have to deal with winning and losing, playing well and making mistakes. We show our players techniques on how to build confidence throughout the different challenges presented in the game. The SAT zone, self talk and goal setting are examples of how we help the players remain focused.
SAT Programs are a great opportunity for children to develop their social skills. On all courses players will be encouraged to conduct themselves as a SAT player and reach the high standards set by young professional footballers.
