THPFC wants every player to develop a stronger relationship with the ball in order to feel confident and continue to develop their love and passion for the game. While we encourage all players to spend as much time with the ball outside of formal soccer settings, we recognize the importance of players learning and expanding their technical foundation as a player.
Ball Mastery is effectively being able to perform a Football Actions on Demand. The goal is to then create an environment where they can perform these Football Actions under pressure, which means having an ability to execute against an opponent. Lastly, we then try to recreate game situations to utilize their newly developed skills in order for the player to gain experience implementing within a game context.
The Ball Mastery sessions are focused on the individual player, developing solid foundational skills with the ball. The sessions will comprise of Technical Development as well as transitioning these lessons into a 1v1, 2v1 or 2v2 environment.
