Training

team,club,and private training

We looked into the small group sessions with Elite FT when our kids became vocal about really wanting to set themselves apart…they were very serious about the game and their desire to advance. The small group sessions have been a game changer. Their confidence has soared. They are strong on the ball, their first touch is great, and they look forward to these weekly sessions. These trainers lead by example. They are professional, knowledgeable in their field, and are just really talented players themselves. 
 
The coaches at Elite FT really know our kids, their strengths and weaknesses. They tailor each session with an end result in mind. We see the skills they are mastering played out in games. They push them, encourage them, and celebrate their successes. Our son broke his arm two games into his first season of soccer. When he was able to return, we started him with 1-1 sessions because we were worried he would be behind after missing the entire season and training. He not only is where he should be, but his confidence is back, and he is doing great! Elite FT has absolutely earned this soccer family’s respect and business. We are extremely happy with the small group and 1-1 training at Elite FT.

Team Training

Coaches, have you wondered why so many teams and clubs train with Elite FT? Many teams in the area — at every level — train with Elite FT at some point throughout the year. We train professional players, colleges, high schools and nearly every local club and recreational program! There is a reason why! We are disciplined, yet fun. We teach skill and build confidence.

Let your players hear a different voice! Your coaches can assist our trainers and learn or your coach can have a much needed night off and the team will be in trusted hands. Some coaches will have parent meetings or private player meetings during our sessions. Whatever you wish.
