Learn to Train
The emphasis of the Learn to Train (U11 & U13) workshop is on technical and tactical development within a small sided game environment (6v6, 7v7, 8v8, and 9v9). You'll learn how t oteach basic principles of play and how to establish training ethics and discipline in a fun and challenging environment.
