Technical Training Program – U9-U12 – Fall, 2014

 

Michigan Fire Juniors Announces TOTAL Technical Hour and Technical Camps for U9-U12 players

 

NOTE: The Michigan Fire Juniors in our continued commitment to the development of our young players has extended the Technical Training Programs to include U9 players this fall.

 

The Michigan Fire Juniors is committed to the technical development of every player, and is offering a very unique opportunity for our U9-U12 players of both genders this summer and fall. The program is called the TOTAL (Technical Obsession To Advance Learning) Technical Hour and is offered at our 28th Ave training fields four nights per week, Monday-Thursday from 4pm-5pm each day. This allows our U9-U12 players to get in extra training specific to their technical development before their regular team training.

 

The Michigan Fire Juniors T.O.T.A.L. (Technical Obsession To Advance Learning) Technical Hour Training Program was recognized at the NSCAA Coaches Convention in January, 2014 as one of ten National “Best Practices.” The NSCAA through their Club Standards Project which the MFJ are participating in, have analyzed over 150 clubs across the United States in a variety of categories and essentially grade clubs in each of these 22 categories. Our T.O.T.A.L. Technical Hour received a Best Practices distinction in our initial Strengths and Weaknesses Analysis from the Club Standards Project, but the project director David Newbery was so impressed with this program, he choose to highlight it in his lecture session at the NSCAA Coaches Convention in Philadelphia last month entitled “A Model Youth Club – Building a Club on Best Practices.”

 

Chicago Fire Juniors Affiliates Program Director Brian Roberts was present at the NSCAA Convention Presentation and had this to say about this program: “I just want to congratulate Dan and the club on your recent NSCAA award. I sat in the workshop when NSCAA recognized ten youth clubs for outstanding achievement. Each club had a few moments to field questions on their own initiative, the MI Fire Juniors training hour was a very popular topic for discussion. Dan and his team really were a great representation of the Michigan Fire Juniors and the Chicago Fire family as a whole.

 

David Newbery, the NSCAA Club Standards Project Director said about the Michigan Fire Juniors T.O.T.A.L. Technical Hour, “In now having personally done over 100 Advanced Assessments (in the US and Canada), this is the first club I have seen dedicate this kind of supplemental training program for the technical development of their players. This is truly a unique program, well done Michigan Fire Juniors” 

 

Technical skills are the foundation of every player’s future, and players simply can NOT touch the ball too often. Most American players do not spend enough time on these necessary skills in team practice or individually on their own, and consequently are often unable to play at the speed the game demands as they advance. Ball Mastery, or Technical Precision is a life-long journey of making the ball do exactly what the player needs under increasing pressure and at every increasing speeds, yet it is the most fundamental and foundational part of every players “tools.”
