Building elite players 1 week at a time
The Champions League is a focused and intense 7-week training and development program strictly for Michigan Burn Club players. Players are grouped by age and skill level to create very competitive coed Champions League teams. We play 4v4 with a futsal ball on small fields to maximize touches, quick play, teamwork and scoring. Players get the opportunity to train, and be coached by all Michigan Burn coaches to truly maximize their experience and development.
What we are going to do and what we expect:
- Relentless Defending - 6 Second Rule: Winning the ball back in 6 seconds.
- Creativity - Encourage players to experiment with 1v1 moves, taking players on, and scoring goals. Decision making and know when to take players on will be emphasized. Combining with teammates- Encourage players to combine in 2-1 and 3-2 situations to break down the other team's defense.
- Accountability - All players are expected to push into the attacking half and attack. All players are expected to fall back into the defending half while defending.
- Compete - At the end of the day, it comes down to winning your 1v1 battles and there is no where to hide in this league. Space and time are limited. Players are expected to play competitively, and for a purpose. In the end, we want mentally strong players that compete every time they step on the field.
We will soon be posting team and player assignments for Champions League 4v4 for 2019.
