2015 SMALL GROUP TRAINING

ABOUT SMALL GROUPS

Small group sessions are open to all PSV Union FC players seeking to improve various aspects of their game in addition to regular team practice sessions and games. Many of our players choose this open to further develop and hone their technical skills and improve their game insights.

The focus of these session include, but are not limited to:
 
INDIVIDUAL TECHNICAL TRAINING
Development and repetition of a variety of techniques: dribbling, passing, receiving, shooting, speed of footwork are essential to helping players play at the highest levels. Technical development takes 5-10 years to fully develop skills that differentiate players. 
 
COLLECTIVE TRAINING
Learning sophisticated combination play between several players requires repetition and the chance to attempt the movements, timing, insights, intuition and reactions in multiple player exercises
 
SMALL SIDED GAMES
This encourages more touches on the ball, more 'situations' players must find solutions to;  greater interaction between players; opportunity to simulate  acquired techniques, movements & concepts in pressure situations that translate to actual game situations 
 
SHOOTING/STRIKING 
* surfaces: bending, chipping, full/half/side volley, instep, placing 
* input and output' -contact point
