ON YOUR OWN - Individual Training

Your individual fitness and skill levels are under your control.  If you want to get better, you have to dedicate the time to work at it. And the more meaningful you choose to make the work - the more improvement you will see!  

Try it!  15-20 minutes of focused ball work at least a few days a week for an extended period of time.  15 minutes of hard, focused work will do you better than an hour of goofing around and not trying to get better,  Yes, every minute with your foot on the ball helps, but if those minutes have purpose, you will see improvement.

Below are some resources with great individual workouts or skill sessions for anyone interested.
