Key benefits of having a 1 to 1 Football Coach

Team training normally only involves a few hours a week and the amount of time players get to spend on the ball and to focus on the individual is limited. Making sure players have good quality time on the ball is crucial for a player’s development. 

1on1 time with an expert is beneficial to boost both ability and confidence. 

Build confidence  

Confidence plays a huge role in whether a football player succeeds and that is where 1on1 soccer training can help. Training in a positive environment where the focus is all about the player can help to break down mental barriers and lift confidence levels. By training with a private coach, you are encouraged to try new things where making mistakes is okay. Your coach is there to support you and stop you from making bad habits.

Personalised training sessions to your learning style and pace 

Training with a team to be adaptable for all players, however, this can limit your individual development. Training 1 on 1 with a coach can be specifically tailored to focus on your areas which need work, in a style that befits your learning style. Most often this is around technique, flexibility, speed, agility and power with and without the ball.

Progress quicker 

Learn in 1 session what would take weeks to learn with a team. Often, a player’s specific individual development can be overlooked for team training. Working 1on1 can fast track you to becoming the best player on the pitch.

Learn and refine new techniques   

Technical football is an area that is often missed in team training but it is a vital component of a soccer player’s makeup. 1on1 soccer training and individual soccer practice are great for mastering skills that can be difficult to master in a game situation. Learning core ball mastery, first touch, turning techniques and ball striking along 1v1 domination are examples of where 1on1 soccer training will really benefit the footballer.

For players looking to learn how to play soccer and are new to the game 

Being thrown straight into a team environment or soccer match can be daunting so working with an expert to start with can help ease you into the world of soccer.

For players wanting to play at an advanced or elite level 

This is probably the most common reason for 1on1 training. As you aim higher and your level increases, the margins become smaller so working with an expert across specific and targeted areas of your game can really make a difference.
