“With my college preseason coming up, and only seven days to prepare for our first scrimmage, ‘Ball Orientated Soccer Training’ was a great resource! We don’t have time to separate technical training and conditioning with our limited schedule, and the activities in these videos will let us accomplish both in the same session. Coach Justin breaks down different activities based on the specific energy system you want to work on, and my players will get plenty of touches and ball work to improve their skill level.
The other factor that I appreciated about these videos was the competitive nature for every activity. My guys always work harder when it’s a competition, and they have more fun without realizing how much they’re working. Whether you’re coaching in college, high school, or club we all need help to make training as economical as possible, and these videos are a great resource for that!” – Jeremy Tosaya, Dakota Wesleyan University Men’s Soccer Head Coach
