MY PROCESS McBride's attacking soccer academy

There are five main emphases that I plan to teach to all the players who train with me: Thought Processing (at pace); Dynamic Movement; Technique; Heading (inside/outside the box); and Pure Shooting. I will personally train each player in these five main emphases. During our trainings I will make sure to correct the small things that can make a good player, great.

In today’s soccer the minutia is what can change things for you and your team. Having better knowledge of soccer will help each player to reach their full potential. The training will incorporate an abundunce of shooting inside the box, crossing, heading, and information to help each individual understand his or her roles in each position. A quick example of this would be situational trainings that allow you as a player to know what pass should be made, because the circumstances that you are in. Vice versa, the forward will then know what run to make because the pass will be coming to that spot. Training these senarios in a dynamic, repetitive setting will help each player to know their roles and become better at them.

Along the way I will be there to give anecdotal information I’ve learned, that should help the player to progress in becoming a more complete soccer player.
