2nd Training Session – “Increasing intensity” – 22/09/2016

Academy of Football’s 2nd adult football training session kicked off on the 22nd September 2016 at Te Whaea Artificial Turf. Once again, another perfect night for training. We’ve been lucky to avoid the rain tonight given the streak of rainy days. Lets hope our luck continues!

The numbers for tonight’s session fell slightly due to illness, injury, and general busyness. However, there were a few new faces tonight and hopefully we can have our highest attendance next week!

The session tonight was far more intense than last week focusing on ball control, touches, and passing. Our sessions will continue to increase every week to push players further in order to simulate game situations such as controlling the ball when you are running and knackered. If you were looking to join our sessions but starting to feel put off from reading this, don’t worry! Our sessions are very friendly, everyone is encouraging of one another, and most importantly our sessions and exercises are designed to allow you to train at your own pace.

Everyone tonight gave it their all and pushed themselves in the drills. Every individual’s touches improved as the night progressed and was evident in the games played at the end of the evening.

This was a good, solid training session and a real example of whats to come in the coming weeks.
