Youth Soccer Training Program Week 7

Youth soccer training program to get more familiar with the soccer ball, improve footwork, and get stronger.
This soccer training program provides the structure for daily training if the player is willing to put it into action.

I split up the workouts into Day 1 and Day 2 because I trained on Tuesday and Thursday.

Get creative with the use of the training plans. Depending on age and skill level, try combining workouts one after another. It takes 30-45 minutes to complete one repetition.

Have fun, and don't forget to stretch.

Don't forget to stretch out for 5-10 minutes before the workout.
