Our Technical Centre programmes are for players between the ages of 5 - 16 who want to improve their individual technique.
At Unique FA we believe that in order to produce technically excellent players each technical aspect of the game needs to be taught in a systematic and comprehensive way.
We also believe that a key to success on the pitch is paying attention to technical detail, and this is what our Technical Centre Programme is designed to do.
The sessions are thoroughly enjoyable and challenging for players and are designed to give players the technical foundations needed to become increasingly effective in game scenarios.
The syllabus used in our Technical Centres incorporates a number of themes/topics into sessions throughout the year. We firmly believe development in each of these areas is essential if a player is to develop the technical proficiency needed to be effective in the game.
The technical topics covered in the syllabus include:
- Dribbling + Running with the ball
- Beating a Player
- Weaker foot
- Receiving Skills
- Spatial Awareness
- Range of Pass
Fast Track Development
In order to accelerate the technical development of our players many of the drills and practises in our technical sessions are unopposed. This allows players the time and space to become comfortable both on and off the ball. Opposed practises, limited pressure drills and full pressure drills are introduced at strategic moments in a session to simulate game-like scenarios.
ALL training sessions are filmed and ALL members have the unique opportunity to use our partner software to not only analyse their own performance during training but also produce individual clips of themselves playing. We provide each member with their own player highlight reel in addition to player reviews, of which individual targets are set.
