There is no argument that those that make it to top levels in soccer have trained for years in an environment which is challenging and focused on purposeful practice. But it is also guaranteed that every top player would have spent significant time training individually learning & refining their skills, their technique, their body movements to be the best player they possibly can.
In the video below, director of coaching Saul Isaksson-Hurst talks about aiming for 20 minutes of technical work each day to supplement your team training and gives some examples too.
Why just 20 minutes technical soccer training daily will improve you?
Working individually works on both the body and the mind so its vital to find the balance to ensure that you are fully focused and not fatigued. Individually soccer training can be intensive hence our experience shows 20 minutes of training to be a good target. Remember this individual soccer training is supplementary to your team training and will give you that edge. A few tips below:
- Make it purposeful. Challenge yourself so that you improve.
- Don’t be be afraid to try new things and make mistakes.
- Be focused for the full 20 minutes.

One of the common issues players have is not knowing what training to do and how to do it. If you practice something incorrectly then it will stick and not give the desired outcome. All our training sessions and elite online training programs follow a proven philosophy and we encourage you to follow this methodology to gain the best outcomes and improve as a soccer player.
