the trainings


The sessions will be based around playing 'Petone Ball'. Our philosophy and style of play is what makes us unique and a fun club to play for! Some of the key concepts that players will learn are outlined below:

X-spam - players will be taken through when and how to dominate a game with 1-2 touch team passing.

Tempo - players will work on when and how to speed the game up to outplay opponents.

X-factor - players will be taken through how to build x-factor into the team game.

The ‘Henry’ Finishing Technique - players will be taken through how to shoot/finish with a composed technique.

Long range shooting Technique - players will be taken through how to shoot f rom distance with power and accuracy.

The ‘cutback’ moment - players will be taken through how to attack and defend in the penalty box.
