Generic Session:
Warm up: 10-15 minutes Dynamic warm up (w/without ball) & Static Stretching.
Activity 1: 15-20 minutes Passing/Receiving with progression (repetition to building good habits + cognitive development)
Activity 2: 20-30 minutes focusing on the essential subject of the day/week with progression
Wrap up: 5 minutes Lesson review & goal setting for the following session

Element Goals:
A well-designed warm-up will increase blood flow, muscle temperature, core temperature, and also disrupt temporary connective tissue bonds. These effects will have the following positive effects on performance:
Mental readiness
Physical readiness
Injury prevention
Performance enhancement
Technically - Players will typically get between 500-1000 touches in this short span of time.

Activity 1: The most essential technical skill category to master is Passing and Receiving! When top coaches talk about "First Touch" they are referring to the passing and receiving element of the game.
Players will get 300+ passing and receiving touches. Players will be challenged technically, physically, and cognitively.

Activity 2: Activity 2 is customized to the individual needs of the player. All players have strengths and weaknesses. We must identify those areas and engage those elements where we can get the greatest return on investment(improve performance in the game).

Wrap up: This is an opportunity to focus in on the topics of the session. Also to communicate the expectations and establish a plan of action until we meet next.

Client Reviews

(no details provided)

We’ve only had 1 training session so far but loved Coach Daniel. We’re excited for the training, knowledge and love for the game that he will share with our daughter. You can tell he 100% understand the game so completely and has a love for the sport. - C.D

Coach Daniel is fantastic! The first session with Coach Daniel left a great impression with our young (recently turned 7yo) son. On our way back to our car, our son asked when he can work with Coach Daniel again. I immediately booked three more sessions.

Our session consisted of the following:
* Initial Assessment (5 minutes)
* Light drills (5 minutes)
* Drills (dribbling, agility, and technique) all under the guise of games.

A few things I really appreciated with our session:

Coach Daniel did a fantastic job in reassuring my son, who was naturally nervous about meeting his coach for the first time.

Explanation of the drills so that both my son and we can understand the end goal.

Things we can work on as a family before our next session.

I would strongly recommend Coach Daniel without hesitation.

I can tell you with all honesty that Coach Daniel is the BEST coach my children have had. He speaks their language. I love the way he asks engaging questions. I truly think he is amazing. I'm just sad we didn't start our kids sooner. D(8) and J(10) feel the same way. Thanks.
