One of the training methodologies used at FC Wisconsin Eclipse is Technical Circuit Training. This type of training allows work on multiple different technical skills within the game in isolated and focused training groups. Having a coach dedicated to each station in the circuit, where every player can get personalized feedback, helps players make significant changes to their biomechanics and understanding in shorter time periods. Check these examples out!
Technical Circuit 1
This circuit has 3 stations:
1.An Air Control Station (working at controlling balls out of the air)
2.A Dribbling Change of Direction Station (working on feints to change direction with the ball)
3.A Turning Station (working on turning 180 degrees when recieving a pass)
Look below to see players working at each station, with coaches dedicated to giving instruction at each.
Technical Circuit 2
This station has 5 stations:
1.An Agility and Dribbling to Beat an Opponent Station (working on agility and 1 vs. 1 feints)
2.A Directional Heading Station (working on heading the ball in a different direction from where it came)
3.A Dribbling Change of Direction Station (working on feints to change direction with the ball)
4.A Turning Station (working on turning 180 degrees when recieving a pass)
5.An Agility and Air Control Station (working on basic agility and controlling a ball out of the air)
Technical development only occurs with high numbers of repetition. Technical development occurs faster when coaches can individually point out flaws, correct mistakes, and emphasize correct executions. We believe in long term athlete development, with a heavy emphasis on establishing a technical foundation. This is the only way to prepare players to succeed over the long-term, as they move to higher levels of play
