Since our class is taught on an indoor pitch, the field is smaller and therefore limits regulation play. However, playing on a smaller pitch is the perfect environment for players to understand how their new skills can be applied in a game.

The ball moves quickly across the surface, so players mu ..read more

There are two key aspects to the principles of defense: unit defense and individual defending.  Unit defense is how a team defends as a cohesive group.

"Man on!" "Drop back!" "Time!" "Turn!" "Through!" "Keeper!" These are just a few examples of the types of communication you'll often hear in a soccer match.
