Soccer Tips: How to Train on the Go

When You Can’t Get to the Gym

Manchester 16
When you can’t hit the gym like these guys, having a back-up workout plan really helps.
But what if you’re stuck in your room, or even on a plane. There are always things you can do to improve your game.

Sometimes, all it takes is a few tweaks in your focus to change you from an average player to an excellent one.

Here are a few ways to make your soccer training more of a priority – even when the gym and the field are miles away.

Daily Discipline: Beyond Footy Skills

If you really want to beef up your game, soccer needs to be with you all day, every day.

A well-trained player knows he can’t slap the “snooze” button on his alarm clock every day or blow off a healthy breakfast in favor of a soda.

No, to really good at what you do, you must use self-discipline in your daily routine on and off the field.

It’s not sexy, but working hard to improve your game means you give up the party to study or go to bed early the night before the big game.

Find that area of your life where you just don’t have self-control, and tackle it until you’re the boss again.

Mental Focus: It’s All in Your Head

Sometimes, the toughest challenges to overcome are in our own minds, especially in sports.

Learning to put yourself through mental exercises as well as physical ones can be your ticket to improving your game.

First, think. What simple mistakes do you repeat on the field?

Everyone has them, but those who take the time to know the “why” will overcome those problems more quickly.

Second, is there a play, a pass, a move you really want to learn? Visualize it. Take yourself mentally through each step, each shift of the play until you have it.

Third, when you’re tired, pressed for time, and just want to get away, take a moment to use your head as a jumbo tron. Close your eyes and remember the best game you ever played. Then play it again in your head.

You’ll be surprised how relaxing and sometimes revealing this exercise can be. You may discover things about your game you would never see when you’re playing.

Remember: You Can Always Do Push-Ups

Training on the go means working on soccer when there’s no ball or turf anywhere near you.

Pick an exercise or two from the list below that you can do in your room.

Keep the list on your bulletin board, and when you need to take a break from studying – break out the moves.

Great ones for this are squats, kicks, wall-sits and quick heart-pumpers like jumping jacks, push ups and all kinds of jumps.

Daily Routines

Everyday at Madrid students wake up at dawn in the university dorm rooms and prepare for the day of training ahead. After a simple Spanish breakfast, they begin daily language lessons and usual academics.

A workout in the gym follows with a specialized fitness training routine for each student-athlete. By then, it’s time for lunch in Madrid – the heartiest meal of the day here – introducing the student-players to many new foods and old favorites like tortillas.

Soccer practices and games take place during the afternoon, and in the evenings, a traditionally light Spanish dinner. Students often call home during this time as well as work on studies and spend time with new friends in the game room.

Summer/Fall 2015 Registration Opens for EduKick Madrid Soccer Training Camps

The Players

“Our current EduKick Spain family includes young players from around the globe who share a passion for football,” said Joey Bilotta, president of EduKick International. “Our player base is always so diverse, and we look forward to seeing what new countries will be represented this year.”

These young athletes range in age from 13-22 and come for more than just the great soccer training they get from the professional coaches at EduKick.

The international academy offers a learning environment where players not only work on developing their football talent under expert guidance, but also have the opportunity to complete their high school education, learn a new language and experience the culture in a city known for “Spanish football.”

One thing EduKick Madrid makes clear is that education is vital to the complete development of each student. The daily schedule is full of learning and activity.

The Schedule

The student-athletes start the day with football training. Four times a week players make the short walking distance to the training facilities to learn from Football Director, DR. Javier Mallo who puts the players through a strength and conditioning program. Afterward, Head Coach Javier Martin focuses on developing the essential technical and tactical skills required for top-level play.

“The will to win is important, but the will to prepare is vital,” Nacho Mallo, EduKick Madrid director, says regarding the intense practice regimen.

Evenings allow time for the players to join local football teams for their training sessions, giving them the opportunity to train and compete among Spanish football players 2-3 times per week.

In addition, each player receives a personal strength and conditioning fitness plan that compliments the training sessions, along with access to a fully-equipped gym, indoor swimming pool and spa.

Weekends are reserved for games where they may have the opportunity to play in the Madrid Municipality League or the Madrid Federated league based upon eligibility.

Edukick Spain offers two main studying options. Particpants who wish to continue their High School academics can enter our affiliate Spanish private school Colegio Alameda. An intensive Spanish language course at the highly-rated International House Madrid language institute is also available to all students.

The Opportunities

Madrid offers a great range of opportunities for players to discover. Art museums like “El Prado” or “Reina Sofia” (home of Picasso´s “El Guernica”), Royal Palaces and wonderful gardens, shopping avenues, markets, busy squares and above all, lots of football.

Each player who joins the Edukick Spain Year Long Program receives a professional football attendance pack where they get to watch live professional football.

This season players have already seen a home league game of the current Spanish League winner and Champions League finalist At. Madrid at the Vicente Calderon Stadium.

Particpants have also visited Valdebebas, Real Madrid training facilities, a home league game of Real Madrid Castilla (coached by Zinedine Zidane), a home La Liga game of Rayo Vallecano against Sevilla and the great Madrid derby at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium Real Madrid vs. At. Madrid.

“We’re proud that all of our student-players are able to get the feeling of professional football that Madrid represents so well,” EduKick’s president and CEO explains. “It’s part of what makes EduKick Madrid the football and academic experience of a lifetime.”
