About This Activity

CAMP DETAILS

The focus of this camp is on the technique of sprinting and shooting. We offer this camp because Adam believes these are the 2 most neglected skills in the Canadian Soccer model. Many coaches would like to teach these skills but with teams having so many players with so little practice time they really struggle to work on these 2 key components. These camps will incorporate all of the skills, speed drills, and finishing techniques Adam used with the highly successful UBC Soccer team who won the CIS national title in 2005 & 2007. This cutting edge camp will focus on the development of game speed with and without the soccer ball. The sessions will be split into speed work on and off the ball with an emphasis on explosive acceleration and precision shooting and goal scoring situations. During the week we will refine each athlete’s individualized sprinting & shooting technique. Participants will be grouped with other athletes in accordance with age and ability. HERE ARE JUST A FEW EXAMPLES OF THE TECHNIQUE WORK YOU WILL DO AT OUR SESSIONS: •Learn to make explosive directional changes that are specific to the game of soccer •Learn drills to increase your vertical jump so you can win those aerial battles •Develop the optimal sprinting technique for running with and without the ball •Develop postural strength to better hold the ball in shielding situations •Learn drills to develop the hamstring flexibility required to hit the ball out of the air •Learn how to “snap” through the ball when taking shots at full speed •Learn how to coil up and explode through the ball with your headers •Learn how to use your opponent’s strength against them during 50/50 battles •Learn how to set your feet for explosive acceleration into space •Learn when to float and when to attack the ball in crossing situations •Learn top class power volleying & 1/2 volleying technique •Chance to win T-shirts, new balls, and other prizes
