Training Priorities for U6-U19

The Technical Department of the VYSA is pleased to announce comprehensive Training Priorities for all our players from U6 to U19.

Coaches from Recreation to Travel can click on the attachment to find out what priorities should be taught at specific ages in the child’s soccer development. It is extremely important that we develop players by design and not by error. And by following these Training Priorities we are ensuring that the players learn aspects of the game when they are physically, emotionally and psychologically ready to do so.
It is highly recommended that players between the ages of 9-14 are trained a great deal in the technical fundamentals and that the majority of the session (65%-75%) be aimed at improving a players 1st touch and improving the quality of striking the soccer ball.
Goalkeeping Training Priorities are also part of the attachment so that teachers of the game can progress in a systematic manner as well.
