First Touch Academy is a soccer training program for youth players/teams who are interested in playing a possession style of soccer. We believe that this style of soccer emphasizes SOCCER IQ and leads to the most efficient development of a player.
What we do
We reduce the trial and error cycle of developing youth players/teams with a possession based soccer framework.
This is the type of soccer that requires foremost good soccer intelligence from all players. If you are truly serious about developing smart players/teams, you ABSOLUTELY MUST train/play a possession based style of soccer.
By playing long balls to one good forward the team can be successful in the short term (score a lot of goals) but in fact this will kill development of all players on the field (and mainly the good forward) as no one is challenged intellectually and SOCCER IQ is zero.
Ultimately no progress is made and development DOES NOT HAPPEN. Click here to learn more about our methods.
