"District Sports Consulting is excited to announce a week-long summer training experience for academy or aspiring academy level players! This camp is ideal for players looking for a new approach in gaining ideas or knowledge on how to enhance individual development outside of the traditional club setting. Our goal is to provide an ideal setting for players to learn new tools to implement in the following key developmental areas:
1. Classroom Focus: Game Analysis
Now, more than ever, players have access to game film at the academy level. With that, many clubs
do not provide a consistent learning platform for our players to effectively analyze game film at the
team or individual level. This is such a powerful learning tool that is often left underutilized.
Through our work with individual players, it is clear that those who do watch game film typically do
not know how to effectively identify key behavioral trends of their team, the opponent, themselves
or track relevant information to use as a performance benchmark down the road. Analyzing film
takes deliberate practice and we are here to help provide a road map to the players.
Our primary focus is to teach players different workflows on how to analyze a game on their own in
a way to obtain critical feedback on their team’s tactical behaviors, positional responsibilities and
key behaviors of the opponent.
2. Self-Regulation: Guiding players to take ownership of their own development
Players will be asked to record and track relevant information from the lectures. This information
will help them develop key performance indicators related to their team’s system of play and
positional behaviors. This will give them clear ideas on how they could apply these methods on
their own during the in-season or off-season period when reviewing film.
3. On field training:
Players will participate in intensive group training with a key focus on positional behaviors and
actions relevant to attacking, defending and transition moments in the game. Players will
experience different tactical games, positional games, or technical exercises within the context of
different systems of play. These sessions will also serve as a great foundation to build into the pre-
season period. It is our intention to film the training sessions to utilize as a learning tool in the
classroom sessions, focusing on how to analyze individual player behaviors."
