Free Play Training

The Free Play program is the foundation of Play Higher FC and one of the primary reasons top players from around the world achieve a high degree of technical and intuitive abilities in the game.

Our Free Play sessions are purpose-built to develop the following attributes of high-level soccer players in small-sided games where repetition builds skill and confidence:

  • Scoring – Free Play increases the ratio of opportunities for players to create and execute chances in front of goal.
  • Decision Making & Ball Control – Free Play increases the amount of touches each player gets on the ball in tight, game-like, situations.
  • Creativity – We create a stress-free environment where players get the opportunity to try new things, fail, and master difficult skills they might not otherwise try in an organized game or practice.
  • Group Learning – We intermix age groups so boy and girl players can experience the pace of the next level. Like learning a language, we create soccer fluency by immersing our athletes in fast-paced group environments.
