NESI "Puskas-Foundation" Soccer Lab

Mondays & Fridays January 18 - March 4 *Skill Level - Travel - Advanced - Junior Academy - Recreation


Our Soccer Lab is built upon the historical, fundamental, and nowadays often mentioned technical principles of the game of soccer. Even till this day, Hungarians and more experienced Real Madrid fans would swear that Ferenc Puskas had never taken a bad first touch. They say, he had never missed a ball from the air. Puskas, one of the members of the Magical Magyars of the 50s, was one of the best players who has ever played. Learning from the best is a must when it comes to individual development. This is the reason why we will offer lessons in our Soccer Lab for any and all players who have the desire to go back to the foundational forces of the game of soccer. The curriculum will be based upon the teachings, principles, and fundamental characteristics of the technical side of the game of soccer.

In this program we will train our players twice a week for seven straight weeks in Virginia Beach. We will have all sessions on grass. We will concentrate on preparing players during the summer in order to prepare them for their upcoming fall season. Our goal is to provide technical training during these empty months and elevate their game as much as possible.
