DESCRIPTION: Italian Academy Training Sessions for
A Complete Soccer Coaching Program
from the Academies of the Italian Serie A
Soccer Italian Style coaches Mirko Mazzantini (AFC Fiorentina) and Simone
Bombardieri (Empoli FC) are both professional football coaches and in this book
provide a full soccer training program from their top Italian Serie ‘A’ academies.
This book contains 12 complete soccer training sessions detailing over 80 practices
and progressions as used in the academies of the Serie ‘A’. Each session focuses on
technical or tactical elements of training and are structured “from simple practices to
more complex game situations”. The sessions outline a complete program which
provides a high level of training.
The 12 sessions (over 80 practices) cover the following attributes:
Technical training; warm-ups with a ball, ball control, attacking and defending from 1 v
1 – tactical game situations, passing and receiving, Explosive Power, coordination, agility
and speed training, football specific conditioning with and without the ball and more.
Tactical training; small sided games, phase of plays, functions, pattern play unopposed
and opposed, psycho-kinetics training to improve player awareness and quick play,
possession play, defensive positioning, counter-attacking, quick transition play, crossing
and finishing, build-up play from the back and more.
Most of the practices cleverly structured for “global training” which means working on
more than one attribute at the same time. This is valid for all players, with drills and
exercises for specific roles (Attackers, midfielders and defenders).
There are also numerous variations for many of the practices, meaning that they can be
repeated again and again providing great practices for any coach to make hours and
hours of top academy level training sessions.
