Group Sessions

Group Sessions Programs

Get involved into the group sessions to work out on your team skills

Our group sessions are strategically built to create an all-rounder team focused player. With this programs your son will improve not only his individual skills but also his team skills, because as we all know, soccer is a team sport and we believe it is crucial that the player can develop both individual and team game sense.

Small Sided Games

The aim is to provide training and game environments that promote the continued improvement of ball skills (technique) and increased game awareness (tactics).

The small-sided game model is an effective method for developing these skills because it increases opportunities for players to have contact with the ball in both attack and defense more often (physicality), and also provides an element of competition (mentality) which should be a central element in a player’s development. 

  1. Program based on developing the individual skills of players on their specific positions on the pitch, through game fragments and small sided games.

  2. Training sessions divided into specific tactical topics for an even greater understanding and faster progress on individual and team / group principles in attack and defense.

  3. Development of individual tactics and technique in situations  1 vs. 1 in attack and defense, with specific relay races to improve motor skills:
    • Speed endurance
    • Coordination
    • Agility

  4. Main Format of tactical game:

    GOALKEEPER +5 DEFENDERS (6)  vs. GOALKEEPER +5 ATTACKERS (6)

  5.  Small sided-games:

    a) Attacker's advantage with direction of playing – 2 vs. 1 | 3 vs. 2 | 4 vs. 3 (eg. Fast break attack).

    b) Attacker’s disadvantage – 2 vs. 4 | 3 vs. 5 (Possession games with transition Defense-Attack (Fast break attack) and Attack-Defense (keeping possession).

  6. Detailed individual analysis using the most innovative tools such as GPS Tracker “StatSport”.

Strength / Power / Explosiveness

The goal is to increase performance, immunize muscles and joints for injuries, increase muscle mass and stabilize the posture of players. 

Strength training not only to immunizing a player but also increasing his physical abilities, such as speed, power and explosiveness, to improve performance on the pitch.

Training focused primarily on the increase of static and dynamic muscle strength (concentric and eccentric), but without a significant growth in muscle mass.

Specific program focused on developing and increasing:

  • Overall strength.
  • Resistance of muscles and joints.
  • Acceleration and deceleration.
  • Change of directions.
  • Power and range of jumps - vertical and horizontal.
  • Maximum speed.

- Each program has the contents of the following training types:

  1. Strength training to increasing overall strength and muscle endurance with emphasis on leg muscle expansion.
  2. Core workouts - (Strengthening deep muscles) Complex exercises optimally stabilizing the body also strengthening the abdominal muscles and torso. 
  3. Hypertrophic workouts - Gradual increase in muscle mass of key muscle groups.
  4. Plyometric training - Increasing muscle elasticity and tendon strength.
  5. Isometric training to increase maximum muscle tone, but without changing their length.

- Special programs and training methods to build strength, power and explosiveness such as circuit training, using your own body weight as well as free weights and additional resistance.

 -Workouts integrated with the game, based on elements present in the game and requiring the participation of significant muscular strength. The exercises are directly related to the game like dynamic exercises with rubbers (expanders) covering in-game moves (ex. ball hits, throws) and isolated exercises combined with football elements.

- Balance and stability aspects to develop better interconnection of body building component (bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments) for a more stable and mobile body:

  • Balance and stability as a key factor of athletic performance, in order to increase the sense of the center of gravity, which allows to produce greater force and strength and make more precise movements to help boost overall performance, coordination and agility.
  • Workout of balancing act, as a controlled wobble, activates deep core muscle to help tighten the midsection and prepares football player for quick turn or lunge.

Speed - Endurance (Conditioning)

Specific interval programs in which, using special fitness tracks, we develop physical efficiency along with muscular strength, power and endurance as well as agility, speed and coordination. 

Programs which improve the most important aspects for footballers: speed, dynamics, explosive power – ability to develop maximum strength in the shortest possible time.  

- Fitness tracks both with and without the ball. Active rests with the content of football technique, perception and intelligence.

- Trainings according to the SAID principle - Specific Adaptations to the Imposed Requirements ("during training as in the game") - through appropriate training incentives reflecting movements during the game, preparation and adaptation of the body to match effort and effective, quick regeneration in order to increase repeatability and frequency of these movements.

- Programs that prepare the player to be repetitively fast and develop his ability to maintain a high level of dynamic actions, short-lived explosive efforts. Also, the ability to perform many quick sprints, turns, sudden stops and changes in the direction of movement without a significant drop in their quality for 90 minutes at the turn of the match, with the least possible loss of power and fast regeneration, without complete rest.

- Trainings focused on three basic characteristics affecting the speed score:

  1. Response time - the ability to react quickly to a signal that triggers an action (stimulus)
  2. The speed of a single move 
  3. The frequency of movements - the ability to perform cyclical movements at maximum speed.

     

- Basic elements of football training to shape specific phases of motion speed:

  1. Reaction phase.
  2. Take-off, explosiveness and acceleration phase.
  3. Speed ​​maintenance phase.

     

-  Exercises reflecting match conditions, especially sprints on short distances with changing direction, fast turns, all from different starting positions. 

- Types of trainings: 

  • Sprints with and without the ball.
  • Sprints with and without the ball including turns.
  • Resisted sprinting- runs against some sort of resistance. 
  • Assisted sprinting - runs at a higher speed, that would not be able to reach unassisted,  
  • Workouts containing elements of plyometric movements.
  • SAQ drills.
  • Multilateral coordination exercises.
