U5-U8 Virtual Training - Jan Lockdown

YEAR OF BIRTH: 2017-2014

This virtual training program puts U5-U8 players through a 6-10 session training program (depending on length of lockdown) that develops their technical skills with the ball and their physical literacy skills (strength, flexibility, coordination).  Players work live, with a small training group under the guidance of our Ottawa TFC coaches, who helps them through a full session twice weekly.  They can interact and see each other training, see exercises demoed on video or by the coach who leads them through the workout, and then perform their exercises under the watch of the coach.

Coaches correct form as needed, encourages players, provides feedback and otherwise leads the session.  From time to time, the players even lead one another through pre-determined exercises overseen by the coach.  Each sessions is 20-25 minutes long, by which time the players are red in the face, having worked very hard, and really been challenged technically and physically.  Everyone who has participated so far has loved their experience, and has visibly improved in all of the focus areas.  We hope you will join us!
