Announcing High Performance Camp 2022

Christchurch United FC will be holding a High Performance camp for U13-17 players (born 2005-2009) who play at CUDL level during the regular season

The players will receive position play based training under supervision of our coaches where we focus on the main cues to improve the associative style of football.

We follow the TOVO methodology which is created in Barcelona by Johan Cruijff's son in Law Todd Beane. The TOVO (Total Football) methodology embraces the way children learn and combine this with the position play based style of football.

Players will learn more about the importance of position play, deliberate practice and about reflecting on their performance.

We use Rondos, Position Play exercises and Training Games which are all cognitively challenging.
