How to Train for Soccer in the Summer

Today we are learning tips on how to train for soccer in the summer time. 

Most places in the world are hot in the summer! Don't complain about the heat, deal with it! 


Key Points to Training in the Summer:

1. Train in the Morning! Get your training done first thing in the morning after breakfast. It's usually less hot and by scratching it off your to do list early you have the rest of your day to relax, have fun and not stress about getting your training in. 

2. Stay Hydrated! The water in your body is like the gas in a car. If a car runs out of gas, it stops. If your body runs out of water, it stops and you will start to cramp and get headaches. Drink lots of water the day before your training session, prior to, during and after training. Sports drinks like Gatorade are recommended for after training when you are replenishing your body of nutrients lost during training.

3. Create a training schedule and stick to it! For tips on using a calendar watch my Online Soccer Academy video titled "How to Manage your Workout Training Schedule". If summer is your offseason then training 5 days a week is enough. Take two days off. Focus mainly on technical work and save the fitness for when your season gets closer. 

4. Organize at least once a week games with your friends and teammates. You be the leader! Set the time and date and the majority will show up to play. 

5. Get Ripped!! If you are a teenager and old enough it's probably time to start working out at the gym. Consult a local speed and strength coach for a workout that is right for you. The offseason is a good time to get stronger and faster using weights. I'm only suggesting this for players that are teenagers and this should be a supplement to skills training, not a substitute. 

6. Use the Online Soccer Academy as your training guide! We have lots of videos to help you! An idea for a good one hour session could be 30 Minute Training Session #10, 15 minutes of Chip Technique practice and 15 minutes of juggling. 


What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: 

If you are constantly stressing about training in the summer, complaining about the heat and not staying hydrated you are doing it wrong! Follow the key points to avoid this! You control your life, don't make excuses. 


Bonus Tip:

It takes years to develop great touch and technique! It takes weeks to get fit. Use your summer wisely and spend most of your time working on your skills and technique; not just fitness.
