About The Session
Elite development begins with elite mentorships. Our program is designed to give you hands on experience with professional players and staff who can help identify technical flaws and nurture good goalkeeping habits. You will not want to miss out on this wonderful opportunity to learn from our amazing pros. The first part of training each topic will be devoted to the technical aspects of the player’s respective positions. Strikers will work with the staff on the finer points of being a striker while all goalkeepers will work on the finer points of goalkeeping.
