Course program

The course structure is divided into 4 large modules (Planning, Methodology, Physical Preparation and Game Analysis), where we will share step by step all the keys to a complete, transversal, innovative and coherent methodology, answering the 4 questions that every methodology must reply:

  • Why? Before starting to train, it is good to review what the authors who have dedicated their lives to studying everything that involves the training process in young people say, in addition to developing a solid proposal that will support all the decisions and actions that will come later. It is the argument of why we will do things one way or another.
  • What to train? Identification of the stage of understanding of the game of our players to choose the contents and slogans that we can train with them to help them jump to the next level.
  • When to train it? Once we have chosen those contents and slogans, it is very important to order them in time. The planning and programming process with each and every one of its steps will help us to organize all the work throughout the season in a coherent way and adjusted to the needs of our players.
  • How to train it? We went out to the field. It is time to train! We will see all the resources we have as coaches to learn to design tasks and training sessions to maximize the learning of our players based on the objective.
