Elite Development Program

A Supplemental Elite Development Course

The Elite Development program will return in late summer 2017 with two groups running over the course of 5 weeks. As the majority of clubs have limited training options through this period, we are offering 30 players the opportunity to come together, no matter their club affiliation, and work with the Advantage coaching staff in high intensity, fast paced technical and tactical sessions for this 5 week period. alongside the opportunity to develop on the field, players will also have the chance to work with very highly regarded physical development coach Sly Walters from the Ternion 3 facility in Streetsville.

The Practical 

The 5 sessions will be an opportunity for players to hit the ground running as we enter the winter season. The Elite program will be accepting Academy and rep players at the target level for the U10/11 group, Academy and  Rep A/B players only for the U12/13 group. All sessions will be 90 minutes in length with 60 minutes focused on developing individual ability, decision making skills and speed of play and 30 minutes dedicated to working on physical development with Sly. All sessions will be delivered by Technical Director Gareth Davies and an assistant coach.
