PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The objective of the FUNdamentals program is to help athletes recognize the movements going on around them. We use small-sided games (5v5) as a method to develop a player’s ability to read what others are going to do. By allowing players to make decisions, expose them to working out problems, and coming up with solutions on their own, is the key strategy at this stage in their development.
