St Mike's Jr Boys - PROGRESS!

The last 2 days we have been working the boys a little harder on individual techniques.  Coach Loris has taken this approach of trying to give these boys as many tools as possible leading to their Grade 11 and 12 years and senior soccer.

My part of this has been working on their footwork with the ball, sending them into situations where they need to use the right part of the right foot to make something work, whether it's 1v1 moves or turns or whatever.  For some it's new and has been a bit frustrating but they are working at it and coming around one at a time.

It's very easy to work with these boys because there is noticeable improvement and they are eager to learn.  Our small game at the end of training today was very competitive and really motivated the coaches to continue on this path and patiently molding this group towards the season opener .

I am sad that my time at the school is coming to an end soon and I hope to be able to continue helping even though I am elsewhere from day-to-day.
