FALL OPTIONAL TRAINING - Begins on 9/8

Once again this fall we will be offering additional Fall Optional Training sessions for those Penn Legacy players who are in Middle School or High School but do not play school teams. 

The training session are free and will be conducted by the Penn Legacy Staff Coaches. The sessions will begin on Sept 8 on Mondays and Thursdays from 7:40 pm to 9:00 pm and will be held at the Quad.

Training components
Foot Speed, Agility, Speed Development, Power and Coordination. 

From my point of view, to become the best footballer you can possibly be, you need to think of a starting point without a ball. Of course the ball, and mastery of the ball, is the single most important thing, but it is not necessarily the first thing. Before all that you need coordination, you need to master your body, you need to ready (on your toes). For example, I may have a first touch like Messi, but if my footwork is slow or clumsy then that will make my first touch irrelevant in many instances during a game. Speed, agility, and coordination are KEY elements of becoming the best athlete and footballer that you can be. So we offer this program to you at the lowest possible price, and we allow the experts to work their magic, and hopefully you will see the results in your pre and post testing, and also out on the pitch.
