The physical fitness is an important aspect of a soccer player’s development. A skillful player will go a long way in the sport, but without the fitness part in their game they will not be the complete player.

The program focuses on getting the players comfortable with physical contact and teaching them techniques in order to protect their body when turning, jumping and landing. The coaches are not only developing the player’s body to better perform in the pitch but also developing skills to prevent injuries

EPD HIGH PERFORMANCE training program is an effective way of improving agility, with and without the ball, for younger soccer players and should be included in physical conditioning programs.

  • Psycho-motor skills
  • Coordination
