Virtual Soccer Training : Developing Individual Skillsets, Motivation & Discipline
Due to recent events affecting our ability to train in large groups based off of CDC (Center for Disease Control) recommendations, Fredericksburg FC has seen this as an opportunity to adapt and inspire our players to push forward through these difficult times. With our Virtual Soccer Training Initiative, the players will be encouraged to continue to develop their individual skillsets, as well as create self-discipline & motivation through a Soccer App. This will allow players to track their hours trained, check progress and compete amongst other players as well as against other teams. This should be seen as a unique opportunity for our players to hyper focus on improving their individual ball control and technique while team training is currently not available.
Sessions on a Weekly Basis will be sent out by our Technical Staff & Individual Coaches.
Individual & Team Leaderboards will be tracked to promote competitiveness and reward achievements reached.
Zone 1 : U9 - U12 Teams will be focused primarily on Skills & Technique
Zone 2 : U13 - U18 Teams will also include Fitness Apps & Programs, as this plays an important role in their personal development.About the Techne Futbol App Training :

Message to our Fredericksburg FC Families :
It has been extremely difficult not having the enjoyment and ability to work with our teams and players on the practice and game fields. Through this new challenge, we have looked to turn a negative into a positive, and developed some new initiatives to aid players in their personal development and continue to stay engaged with their coaches, teammates and club.
During the past week, we have created a few development initiatives which we believe will help us to continue to move forward. More details about these initiatives will be shared with you over the next few days as we are working on age group specific details for all these initiatives.
Technical Training Initiative through the Techne Futbol App
We have acquired a club membership with Techne Futbol, a digital platform for individual technical training. Starting Thursday, we will provide a daily technical training plan for all of our players that will allow them, through the Techne App, to focus on specific technical exercises while staying connected to players within the team and the club. You should have received an email tonight at 6:00 pm from Techne Futbol with an invitation to download the Techne Futbol app and login information for your personal player account. We encourage all players to spend some time tomorrow familiarizing themselves with the app.
For all families who are looking for a home schooling project, we also recommend looking at this website: https://www.kickwalls.com/plans . You will find detailed instructions on how to build your own personal technical training wall at home, which would come in very handy when completing Technical Training tasks.
GK Training Initiative through the Techne Futbol App
Goalkeeping training will also be provided through this new training platform. The Goalkeeper Director will be providing weekly training sessions and track their progress.
Additional Apps & Programs for the following will be provided :
Fitness & Strength Training Initiative
Similar to the Technical Training Initiative, we will provide a weekly training plan detailing physical exercises for our oldest age groups continuing the physical periodization that is in place for those age groups. Details will be sent out for the start of next week.
We hope that you and your loved ones stay safe! If we can help with anything or if you have questions about any of the new initiatives, please reach out to us directly.
Thank you, Stay Safe & GO FFC !
