The Elite Player Attacking Defending camp is an invitation only event that brings together top female players for three days of training, competition, and fun. The curriculum includes technical training/ball mastery and is based on structured functional and phase of play training to focus on developing a player’s attacking and defending skills through technical skill & tactical understanding.
Our program gives the player additional training to improve their technical and tactical ability and is for the committed soccer player who has the desire to play at a higher level.
Experience and train with top trainers, players from other clubs in a fun, competitive, and positive environment.
Keepers welcome. Please email email@example.com for more information.
Functional training is training for a specific position or area of the field (like forwards, outside midfield, etc). This type of training involves practicing the specific demands of a position or a role. This can be for an individual player, or for a unit (i.e. back line).
Phase of play training is designed to simulate a specific section of play within a real match. We train the understanding of the principles of play and tactical understanding.
This form of training focuses on a specific aspect of play (attacking down the flanks, counter-attacking, etc). It may be overloaded (e.g. 9vs8, 8vs7) and conditions placed on the other group to further create a good learning environment. Various start positions can also be employed to create the game scenario desired.
Below are examples of functional and phase of play training for forwards, mids, and defenders.
