Matthew Hoppe, professional player at Schalke 04, training with Play Higher FC

The story of every best player in the world’s extra training is the same: playing street soccer with their friends.

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.
