Players will be provided the knowledge of becoming a better athlete through physical training which focuses highly on core strength training to improve their speed, agility and flexibility.

The first day of camp players will have a course on nutrition & wellness. The knowledge provided during the course goes beyond the week of training. Players will be given examples of a professional soccer player’s lifestyle. Players will be challenged to live this lifestyle for the next 5 days as they embark on their 5 days of pre-season training.
