The objective of this book is to share the actual training methodology used in the youth divisions of a professional Italian soccer club. The focus is on technical skills and at the same time teaching the fundamentals of individual tactics and group tactics as well as coordination and the fundamental aspects of conditioning.
Each lesson plan is chronologically organized to develop the technical aspect (by way of an initial warm up game and or a technical activity,) the physical aspect (by way of a coordination or conditioning activity,) and a Tactical aspect (by way of a game situation or game with a theme.)
The 45 lesson plans are organized into 15 instructional blocks based on 3 training sessions per week for a 2 week period. In order to provide the players a more efficient learning environment, it is suggested that each lesson plan is implemented twice.
