On December 2, the U13 and U14 FC Wisconsin Eclipse players completed the first 8-week program in TIP™ Training (Technical Improvement Program). TIP™ Training is a proprietary individual training program created to teach players how and what to train on their own to improve and enhance individual technique. The program focuses on technical skills in dribbling, receiving, passing, and ball-striking.
Players participating in TIP™ Training are provided personal training exercises each week that can be done in small spaces with minimal equipment. These exercises are selected and developed to be developmentally-appropriate for the age group, and to provide a progressive developmental curriculum as players move through the program. Improvement is dramatic and noticeable in only a few short weeks.
"Technical skill is the foundation for developing successful soccer players," said FC Wisconsin Eclipse coach Andy Lee. "At the club, we focus a huge amount of time on individual skill in every training. But to maximize their potential, players must know how to train on their own, and must spend time alone with the ball. TIP™ Training provides that opportunity for our young players."
FC Wisconsin Eclipse is a licensed club of TIP™ Training. Participation in the program is one more way that players at FC Wisconsin Eclipse are provided unique opportunities to maximize their potential and prepare themselves to play at the highest levels in the country.
