Brazilian Way Summer School by Paulo Neto

Sessions limited to 30 players

This is the extended version of the Brazilian Way Futbol Academy, which has been extensively accepted by FC Alliance members. This is a unique opportunity to have a professional training experience. Individuals will work one-on-one with our staff to address each player’s goals and specific needs. The number of players per training session will be limited to 30. This is about advanced training with the primary objective to improve the individual’s technical skills and ability to make decisions on the soccer field. Thus, as the Brazilian Philosophy dictates, the fundamentals of the sport are highly emphasized (i.e. dribbling, passing, receiving, finishing, heading, etc.) so that they can be applied to game situations with incredible creativity. This program will also introduce players to the concept of functional training, emphasizing all the specifics of each position on the field.

Ultimately, the Brazilian Way Futbol Academy aims to create a training environment where players learn, develop and understand the game by using their own creativity. Our approach gives individual ownership to the player. Experience has proven that when you give a player ownership of a thought, idea or practical execution of a skill, they are more motivated to carry it through to the end.  Thus by guiding their creativity, players can be coerced into making logical decisions, allowing them to remain calmer and at an optimal state to work their way out of trouble. The Brazilian Way is all about developing confidence and instilling passion in the player.
