FAQ

Is the program still appropriate for players who have limited space?

The answer is yes!
All ball mastery exercises have been designed for small spaces. The classroom sessions and tutorials are all virtual. With the exception of the forward play tutorials which you are encouraged to use a goal, (even technical aspects can be practiced in small space) all are small space specific. 

Who is the Virtual Academy for?

The Virtual Academy has been specially created for youth football players.

If you want to push yourself, train harder, quicker, tighter and more dynamic. Or work through a session step by step at your own pace and then become quicker and smoother.
