AMFC Elite week 4 and 5 update

AMFC Elite Families:
Some new news is coming from the federal and state governments as a result of improvements in the coronavirus situation. It appears that the sports activities for children are part of phase two of the return to a less restrictive way of life. We are not quite sure of the numbers that will be permitted, groups of 10 to 15 first then 25 to 50 and then hopefully 100 or more. As a result of the uncertainty I cannot disclose all of the plans that have been formulated for the summer but an abbreviated form is below along with the updated training program for weeks 4 and 5.

Summer activities at Akron Indoor?
- Summer in-house training and games. Sessions structured with a 30 minute training session and then play two 5 v 5 games     
           against  teams that are formed with the idea of keeping them as close as possible with respect to ability. Details of this program will
   be finalized b
ased on the responses of participants.

- Summer skills sessions (Groups of no more than 5 players) multiple groups will be offered for age and time of day.

- Summer pre-season camp
530 pm to 7pm for all players 12 and under
630pm to 8pm for all players 13 and up

Fees and other details will be finalized once we get a final go ahead from our government with respect to what we can do and when.  

Please be safe and stay healthy.

AMFC Elite coaches and executive directors.

AMFC Elite week 4-5 training guide

A new series of activities have been selected for your next two weeks of activity. Please review the activities and plan on practicing the activities prior to starting the timed aspect of the activity.

 

As a result of the spring season being cancelled, the player focus now is more about the resumption of some sort of training structure with continued opportunity for individual advancement. Getting out and working through the activities will not be easy but it will produce the type of players that will maximize their potential and attain their desired goals.

 

Tuesday and Thursday

Fitness base component

U11, U12, U14 boys and girls run ¾ of a mile rest 1 minute and run another ¾ of a mile

U15 to U19 players run 1.5 miles in under 13 minutes, rest 1 minute and then run another 1.5 miles in under 13 minutes

 

After completing your runs please use the video link below to address your foot-speed needs. The process of training the individual player is up to the individual player. Are you just doing the activities for the sake of doing them or are you making a conscientious effort to execute each activity exactly as the coaches demonstrate?

This footwork component continues from previous weeks because the activities cover all aspects of player movement in a very concise way.

Stretch prior and after your runs and then move onto your juggling activities
