Spring Total Technical Hour
 
Michigan Fire Juniors Announces
TOTAL Technical Hour
For U9-U12 Players 
 
 
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 with our National Award Winning program for this spring called the TOTAL (Technical Obsession To Advance Learning) Technical Hour.  This program is offered at our 28th Ave fields four nights per week, Monday-Thursday from 4pm-5pm each day.  This allows our players to get in some extra training specific to their technical development before their regular team training.
 
We expect most players will choose to come on one or both of their normal training nights, however players are allowed to come on off nights, also.  Training will be led by our Technical Director Dan McAllister with the assistance of other MFJ coaching staff, and some of our club players.  Players will NOT need to register for any of these sessions.  Each player must bring their own soccer ball, water bottle and excellent work ethic.  Training is currently planned to take place directly behind the church at our 28th Ave complex.
 
Technical skills are the foundation of every player's future success, 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 increasing speeds, yet it is the most fundamental and foundational part of every player's "tools."
