GOALKEEPER TRAINING

Each of our teams comes equipped with their very own goalkeeping coaches who will work with our talented pool of goalkeepers on a daily basis to improve all aspects of their game. Sessions are tailored to each individual and goalkeepers will receive individual training during each training session to focus on goalkeeper specific drills and exercises.

Our team of goalkeeping coaches have vast experience working within our Academy system and work closely with our coaching staff to identify key philosophy's within the way we want to play. For many young goalkeepers, the Spanish style of play will pose a new challenge, with more expectancy to be involved in the build up of attacking phases but our coaches will explain in full and introduces these key principles.

Goalkeepers throughout our club structure, can also expect to experience goalkeeper specialised trainings scheduled into their monthly planning. These sessions will be held in addition to regular team trainings and further enhances a goalkeepers development through individualised training and classroom sessions.

PHYSICAL PREPARATION

At FCMC we go to great lengths to ensure that our players are submerged in the life of a professional footballer and as such we place a great deal of focus into the physical preparation of all our players. For many of our players this is their first time experiencing intensive full-time training consistently over a full 10 month season and that's why we assembled a team of physical preparation and physiotherapy specialists to ensure that all our players needs are met.

 

Our Sports Science department, headed by Ryan Bowen, looks to ensure that we are utilizing all the latest techniques, methods and equipment to stay at the forefront of the professional industry. Ryan is assisted by a full team of physical preparation and athletic training specialists who all operate with the same goal in mind.

Each of our teams are assigned a specific athletic trainer who works with each of our teams and coaching staff on an individual basis in order to provide: first hand assistance in the case of injuries, personalised rehab and treatment services, detailed planning and scheduling of sessions in order to get the player back to full fitness as quickly and efficiently as possible.

In addition to our team of athletic trainers we also have a dedicated team of physical preparation therapists that concentrate solely on the physical development of our players in relation to their goals within football. We incorporate a number of specialised sessions including: yoga; spinning sessions; injury prevention; strength and conditioning sessions into our schedule to ensure that players have all the tools they need to be successful.
