How to Train in the Summer and Set Goals

Do you set GOALS during your SUMMER soccer training sessions? 

Key Points:

Key Point #1. Set Goals! Set goals for yourself for the day and week. For example today I will improve bending the ball. Then work on that extra in your sessions. 

Write your goals down. Mark them off when you complete them. Having a visual of your progress will be helpful in seeing your improvement. 

Small improvements daily equal big improvements over time. By the end of the summer you want to look back and say, "I'm a better player then I was at the start of the summer."

Key Point #2. Focus on Skills and Technique; not just fitness. Juggling, dribbling, shooting, speed of play, chipping the ball, etc. 

It takes weeks to get fit, it takes years to have great technique and skill. So don't just do fitness all summer. Yes, that will feel like you are working hard and you are but in the long term just being fit doesn't improve your game. 

Try doing fitness with the ball if you are going to do fitness. 

You will naturally be fit from playing and practicing. If you are going to do fitness I'd do like a 20% fitness versus 80% skill work. 

Key Point #3. Improve your body strength. If you are 14 and up I'd consider getting a workout plan from a local speed and strength coach. Be safe but use the summer time to get in the gym too. 

Don't get me wrong don't just get jacked lifting weights all summer and not practice with the ball. Gym workouts should be a supplement to your on the field training. 

Key Point #4. Train in the mornings! Most places around the world it's hot in the summer. If you get your training down in the morning it usually is cooler. Plus then you don't have to stress about training the rest of the day and you have more time to be a kid and hangout! 

Key Point #5. Use the Online Soccer Academy videos! We have 200+ training videos to help you! Go to OnlineSoccerAcademy.com and they are sorted by category for you. Plus we have 30 minute sessions you can do as well! 

The Online Soccer Academy is something I wish I had growing up. The videos will help you create a practice plan for each day you want to practice. 

Key Point #6. Train on the field no more 1-3 hours a day, 5-6 days a week. Rest is important and you don't want to burn out.

It will remind you that you are a Believe in it® Athlete and hard work pays off. 

Train hard this summer and enjoy the process of improving. Be the player you want to become.
