First I would like to find out where the player would need more focus on.Then I would gear training session based on player's skills and ability. I would work on progression so I could see what the player will still need to work on the future Sessions. Such as basic technical , tactical skills and fitness workouts.

My sessions are organized with specific drills to help players increase their confidence with the ball. I focus on drills such as passing, first touch, shooting, and dribbling drills. There will be a wide variety of drills that I will cover to help a player understand the game. I typically run a session that lasts 60 minutes. I will run fitness drills that will help improve stamina. My plan will also focus on speed and agility, that will improve a players coordination and explosive speed. I plan to help the players get very comfortable with the ball. These sessions will improve dribbling speed and allow players to play with more confidence, when they are challenged against new opposition. My sessions will be used to simulate real game situations, so that the players will have a better feel of the ball under pressure.
