Fall 2015 Dates and times TBD
The purpose of the Monday night training is to enhance each players technical and tactical abilities, and to expose the younger players to physical coordination. Here, the players hear a different voice and experience a different approach, but the curriculum is consistent. The players no longer rotate, but the coaches do. This rotation can take place after two segments of a session( each session comprises of 4 segments) or from session to session. The tactical approach can go from simple individual decision making to more complex group tactics. This is complementary training that can't be addressed enough ( time constraints) in practice.
The Technical Directors have chosen to have all travel players wear a specific training uniform for Monday night training sessions.
Families who wish to order additional training kit items will be able to do so as part of their uniform order or separately after they place their uniform order. Estro Jersey, Striker Shorts.
Monday Night Travel Training

Under the direction of Technical Directors, Clyde Watson and Ken Krieger, this program provides additional player development opportunities for any MYS travel team or individual.
Each evening will also be devoted to a different soccer-specific theme, including but not limited to, principles of 1 v 1 defending, bending balls (banana kicks, etc), creating space in the final third, finishing (volleys), defending the give-and-go pass and shielding, heading (offensive and defensive), chipping and finishing (free kicks).
Space is limited to 75 participants per session and applications will be accepted on a “first come, first served” basis. All participants must bring ball, plenty of fluids and be dressed in appropriate soccer attire, including cleats and shin guards.
