Christchurch United Football Academy
Weekly Training Structure
The training structure is organised to maximise development and spread the physical load on the players out over the week. Within this structure, we have planned loading for each session to take into account the phase of the year and the loadability of the players. This is adapted on a weekly/daily basis by the coaches based on our monitoring programme and intuition.
“If you have the ball you must make the field as big as possible, and if you don’t have the ball you must make it as small as possible."
Johan Cruyff
One of football’s greatest ever players and most influential coaches.
