Here's your chance to see how it's done by Hall of Fame Coach Anson Dorrance, who lets you into the Tar Heels' pre-season training camp and shows you how his coaching staff evaluates top-performing team each and every year.

    Coach Dorrance begins by explaining the purpose and rationale for evaluating players' skills and abilities. Once all of the tests and exercises are demonstrated, he uses the closing segment to summarize the overall value of employing an evaluation system, which include:

    • Guiding players to stay at a high physical and technical level during the off-season
    • Establishing a set group of tests for physical abilities and technical skills
    • Instilling core values and expectations meant to maximize team performance

    Learn how to using a scoring and ranking system to assess your players. Discover a way to share performance data with players that can help them improve their game and enhance the strength of the team overall.

The power of each player's foot helps Coach Dorrance know which of his players has the ability to take long-range shots outside of the 18-yard box. This information helps players work on their shooting techniques and also helps coaches identify long-distance shooters.

    Another part to the technical evaluations are cross-field aerial passes that are based on the distance and accuracy of the kicker, as well as the receiver's ability to settle the ball with their first touch. This will help players improve their techniques and help coaches know what aspects players need to work on in the future.

    with Jason Hamilton, Troy University Head Women's Soccer Coach;
    former University of Florida Assistant Coach/Goalkeepers, former assistant coach with the Boston Breakers of the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL)

    Goalkeepers who can make tough saves can be the difference between winning a game and losing it. Coach Hamilton shows you how to design training sessions for goalkeepers that maximize their goal coverage and give them an edge in making a reaction save when the time comes.

    Former University of Florida Assistant Coach Jason Hamilton covers all of the coaching points for each drill before he starts each session. Using practice footage, he demonstrates how to develop the drills that build confidence as well as fitness and skill levels in goalkeepers as they prepare to handle difficult shots. Key coaching points include:

    • Using drills to develop advanced ball-handling skills
    • Improving reaction time on point blank shots
    • Teaching goalkeepers to dive through the ball when making a save
    • Creating games to simulate game-day situations
    • Challenging the shooter to force a wide or early shot

    Coach Hamilton puts his keepers through their paces as he implements drills for warm-ups, drills to improve techniques, and games apply those skills at full speed. The goalkeepers demonstrate how to improve handling through rebounds, reactions, and challenging the shooter. They also demonstrate drills to improve extension diving, stretching your range out past the goal posts.

    Before each training segment, Coach Hamilton breaks down the drills and clearly explains the purpose for each one. This video also includes several competitive games that can be used with goalkeepers to reinforce and apply the drills.

    This is an excellent video for coaches of advanced players who already have some experience at the goalkeeper position.

    • Coaching individual techniques and tactics to create space
    • Using shadow play and training dummies to learn effective passing patterns

Coach Burleigh breaks down the game into small, manageable segments to prepare the team for fast, technical play. Two games are then used to keep technical play at a premium while encouraging the team to develop good tactical choices. See how the Gators' coaching staff uses these techniques in possession and attacking games. The 5v5 possession game develops the speed and accuracy required of a top NCAA program. The 9v6 game puts pressure on defenders while attackers learn to use space and visual cues to penetrate to the goal.

    with Vern Gingerich, University of Notre Dame Men's Soccer Goalkeeper Coach,
    member of the 2013 NCAA Championship coaching staff, played goalkeeper for four years at Trine University

    Goalkeeper coach Vern Gingerich shares an inside look at a goalkeeper training session with the University of Notre Dame men's soccer program. Beginning with a dynamic warm-up for goalies, Gingerich offers great ways to get keepers ready to react and handle the ball.

    Goalkeeping Basics
    Teach your keepers how to get in position to stop any shot. Your goalkeepers will be able to make strong saves, especially when they get their body behind the ball.

    Quick Reactions
    The key to giving up fewer goals is to be ready at any moment for the shot. Coach Gingerich demonstrates reaction drills that build the goalie's mobility and gets them used to sprinting for a ball. These drills also develop a sense of how to make saves while looking past or through a wall of defenders.

    Pull Backs
    When the attackers are making a run down the field, especially from the wings, they will try to take the ball to the end line and make a pass across the box to a forward or central midfielder for a shot. This segment trains goalies become better at cutting off passes and angles on any shot taken. Keepers also learn not to cheat out too much anticipating a cross. The need to cover the near post in case of a shot from the wing is also emphasized.

    Goalkeepers of all skill levels can benefit from this thorough training session. Watch your keepers become more confident in their actions and better able to make more saves. The clean sheets will add up.

    This segment focuses on passing, moving and defending in grid. The 3v1 portion trains defenders to step before the pass is made, which can lead to interceptions. Defenders also learn to close down space and limit offensive passing options. In order to be successful, the offense must execute quick, decisive passing.

    In 4v2, defenders learn how to work as a team and to dictate the way the game is played. This helps minimize split passes and enables players to transition properly from defense to offense. Players develop the attacking skills needed to keep the defense from adjusting and pressuring the ball.

    The final series of games in the grid are progressions that will make offensive and defensive players more confident in a 1v1 situations. As this series progresses, you'll get tips and strategies to train your players to communicate effectively and be able to cover one another better, which can put a stop to any attack. You'll also learn how to turn numbers up or numbers down situations in your favor.

    Attacking & Finishing
    Notre Dame Associate Head Coach BJ Craig leads the finishing segment of the video. Offensive players will get better at timing their runs, attacking the pressure and using deception to engage the defender away from attacking options. These techniques eliminate off-side issues on your team.

    Transition Game
    Strategies from the previous segments come together in the transition game. See how players can be better decision makers when defending in transition. Help your players understand how to make trailing runs and support their teammates when pushing forward.

    This comprehensive soccer presentation covers the skills and drills for improving offensive and defensive tactics on the soccer field. Use the same concepts that helped Notre Dame Head Coach Bobby Clark lead his team to the 2013 National Championship!

    World-class soccer coach Bobby Clark shows you how to improve your team's possession time. With more time on the ball, your team creates more opportunities in the attack, and reduces opportunities for your opponent. Coach Clark diagrams drills on the whiteboard before demonstrating them on the field, providing a better learning experience for both coaches and athletes.

    Keep Ball Transition Grid
    These grid drills, which work on possessing in transition, start as a 3v1 and progress to 7v5. They can be used as warm-ups to get players working on quick one- and two-touch passing. Players learn how to support their teammates, and create angles to help them pass out of pressure. The importance of playing a soft pass to draw the defender and then a firm pass to split the defense or to get around them quickly is also discussed.

    The "10v6 + 4 Drill" emphasizes seeing the whole field and looking for the open man both near and far. The defenders try to force the turnover by reading and stepping to the offense before a pass is made.

    Barcelona Keep Drills
    A great first touch creates space and time to decide the best option going forward. Coach Clark demonstrates his adaptations of two drills from one of the world's top club teams, FC Barcelona. These challenging drills will teach players how to maintain possession with limited touches.

    Similar to the Barcelona Keep Drill, the Bigger Barcelona Drill focuses on spacing players to make it tougher for the defense to get the ball. This is a great game-like drill that gives options for getting past the defense by working around the opponent, going through the opponent or over the top of the opponent.

    Increase possession time with these exceptional keep ball drills. Possess with a purpose and become a team that plays quicker than opponents both on and off the ball.

    member of the 2013 NCAA Championship coaching staff, played goalkeeper for four years at Trine University

    Goalkeeper coach Vern Gingerich shares an inside look at a goalkeeper training session with the University of Notre Dame men's soccer program. Beginning with a dynamic warm-up for goalies, Gingerich offers great ways to get keepers ready to react and handle the ball.

    Goalkeeping Basics
    Teach your keepers how to get in position to stop any shot. Your goalkeepers will be able to make strong saves, especially when they get their body behind the ball.

    Quick Reactions
    The key to giving up fewer goals is to be ready at any moment for the shot. Coach Gingerich demonstrates reaction drills that build the goalie's mobility and gets them used to sprinting for a ball. These drills also develop a sense of how to make saves while looking past or through a wall of defenders.

    Pull Backs
    When the attackers are making a run down the field, especially from the wings, they will try to take the ball to the end line and make a pass across the box to a forward or central midfielder for a shot. This segment trains goalies become better at cutting off passes and angles on any shot taken. Keepers also learn not to cheat out too much anticipating a cross. The need to cover the near post in case of a shot from the wing is also emphasized.

    Goalkeepers of all skill levels can benefit from this thorough training session. Watch your keepers become more confident in their actions and better able to make more saves. The clean sheets will add up.
