New England Soccer School was created in January 2018 with a vision to facilitate individual player development. At NESS, we are not driven by competition but by a commitment to strengthen every player’s unique skill set. To this end, we offer customized training to players of all ages and competencies. We tailor our schedules, training regimens, and nutritional guidelines to complement every individual’s distinct capacity. Our innovative training sessions value peculiarities and enable players to develop a repertoire of soccer drills and tactics. We guarantee growth in the game and beyond.
We target four major components that are indispensable for progress:
A disciplined and healthy lifestyle is central to any athletic enterprise. Soccer players, in particular, are regarded as the fittest athletes in the world. The exacting nature of the sport requires a sustainable, disciplined, and healthy lifestyle. This entails the basics: a nutritious diet and strict workout routines. To supplement the basics, we also equip players with prehab skills for injury prevention and sustenance.
We believe in an integrated approach to fitness. Alongside physical health, mental well-being is paramount to quality performance. Often the pressure, stigma, and anxiety of failure becomes a major roadblock. We want to help players address their inner anxieties and personal issues which may impede progress.
Gaining a technical understanding of the game and acquiring technical skills is central to sustaining success on the field. Our focus in this compartment is on basic techniques like passing, shooting, dribbling, and ball control. Basic skills help players develop dexterity, finesse, and confidence, which in turn facilitate rapid acquisition of the more complex techniques. Our training methods enable players to remain vigilant and mindful of complex intricacies in the game. They are trained to watch the weight of the ball while passing and juggling, getting the perfect first touch, and controlling the ball using various parts of the body. Players acquire an in-depth understanding of shooting techniques and the value of maintaining finesse, power, volleys, and half-volleys. Alongside technical skills, our sessions offer tremendous technical knowledge and insight that each player uses in his own distinctive way. This includes strategic considerations like anticipating ball movement, checking shoulders before receiving a pass, and lifting the head up while dribbling.
There are multiple tactical moves that a player can use to complement his skills. Understanding various formations, switching the point of attack, position specific play, man markings, zone defense, space allocation, and other tactics to control speed and rhythm of play can help players contribute to their teams and find their own space. We want to equip players with tactical and analytical skills, so they can assess opponents and adjust their craft accordingly.
