Cobras FC Technical Academy
2016/2017 Cobras FC Technical Academy (U8-U13)
Cobras FC Technical Academy is designed for players who want to improve their ability and their knowledge of the game. Each participant will participate in 10 weeks of training where the emphasis will be on challenging each individual to improve on every aspect of their game.
Each session is broken down as follows….
Warm-Up with the ball: 10 Minutes of ball manipulation using both feet and all parts of the foot. Players will be challenged to add and master new moves, turns and faints each week. The warm up will gradually progress each week to challenge the player.
Teaching: This 20 minute period will be devoted to working on that week’s particular topic with particular attention being given by the coach to learning the correct mechanics and understanding where this might apply to a game situation.
Game like Situation: This 15 minute segment will challenge the players to take what they have learned and apply it to a game like situation or competitive game. This is not an open scrimmage.
Play: Each session will end with a scrimmage. The coach will put in place certain stipulations in order to encourage the players to focus on that week’s topic and how it applies to the game. Coaches will continue to coach the players throughout this segment.

Cobras FC Advanced Academy
The Advanced Academy program is open to all U14-U18 players and designed to expose players to college level coaching and training. Each 90 minute session is set up to challenge the player technically, tactically and physically.
The Advanced academy training sessions will focus on developing the player’s ability on the ball through repetition and game like scenarios where the player is challenged to execute certain skills in small spaces, under pressure with limited time on the ball.
The sessions will help develop the player’s tactical knowledge through classroom sessions, shadow play, small sided games and full field scrimmages.
Each session will have an element of fitness to it due to the length of the session and the standards set by the coaching staff.
The Advanced Academy sessions are designed for players that want to be challenged, have a desire to learn and want to improve their overall game.
The Advanced Academy will take place on the following dates…
