Session Structure: The “Raw Dribblers” Program is structured to expose the player to deliberate play. This is the most child appropriate way of developing, by optimizing confidence, physical attributes, social interaction, and high repetition of technical actions in soccer realistic situations. Not only does this format address the four pillars of a players development, but makes it athlete-centered to maximize fun.
