How spending 2 days at #RIASAOnTheRoad will make you a better soccer player

I know what you’re thinking: “Another soccer camp? Really?”

You’ve become overwhelmed with the sheer amount of soccer camps being run in your local area over the summer months and you simply do not know where to spend your hard-earned money.

As an aspiring soccer player, you just want (and deserve) access to the right coaches with deep knowledge and experience of the game who can help you towards achieving your goals but there are so many choices.

So, on goes the search for the perfect soccer camp.

But, hold on, we may be able to make your decision easier.

Trust your instincts

First off, don’t forget, those selling soccer camps need you. The ball is in your court.

The issue is that many aspiring soccer players are naive to the power they have in choosing where they play and with whom they choose to spend their time. Meaning that they often end up spending time and money on underwhelming soccer camps.

Often, soccer players are so motivated and hungry, they end up taking the first offer they see. Even though they may have been better-served waiting things out and seeking out some unique opportunities that may truly take their game to the next level.

Speaking of unique opportunities, how does being coached by an ex-professional, 2x League & Cup-winning Captain and UEFA-A licensed coach for two days sound?

How we will make you a better soccer player in just 2 days

Rob Jones is the head academy coach at Richmond International Academic & Soccer Academy (RIASA) and played professionally in the English and Scottish leagues for the best part of two decades before retiring in 2017 with a long list of professional honours.

RIASA Head Academy Coach, Rob Jones

He is now travelling to Sunrise, Florida on 15-17 June 2018 for an exclusive #RIASAOnTheRoad event in search of soccer-playing talent to whom he can pass his knowledge and experiences on too. During this 2-day visit, you will learn:

  1. The mindset you MUST have to be successful in soccer

There are some fundamental characteristics that aspiring soccer players must have:

  • Determination
  • The maturity to take responsibility for one’s actions
  • Grit
  • The ability to listen
  • A ruthless edge when needed
  • A natural tendency to work hard

During our two-day visit, Coach Jones will discuss with you how he utilised these traits during his career to be a renowned leader and a credit to his clubs. More importantly, you will be shown the importance of applying these traits to your own game in order to gain an edge on your opponent for the whole 90.

  1. How to instinctively adapt to different tactical styles of play

As a soccer player with ambitions to play globally, it is vital that you have the ability to adapt to different tactical philosophies. At RIASA, we are known for our optimisation of width during our play. You will learn to recognise the triggers that will instinctively move you into advantageous positions on the pitch.

Resulting in more chances to get that game-winning goal. And that’s always nice, right?

  1. The way to play fast, attractive football that will give you the edge on anyone

If your opponent can’t keep up with your speed of play, you win the game. It’s as simple as that.

There is nothing more difficult to play against than a team who have a deep understanding of how to play efficiently through each third of the pitch. Not only is it frustrating for the opponent but it’s beautiful to watch.

There is a reason soccer is called ‘the beautiful game’. This is how we play, and this is how you will be shown to play.

  1. How to control a game even when you don’t have the ball

It’s all well and good being skilful, tactical and creative when you have the ball.

But what do you do when you’re out of possession?

It’s vitally important to understand the methods behind winning a game even when you and your teammates don’t have the ball. These methods are grounded in your ability to understand your role in your team’s shape and how to detect triggers to press your opposition.

Coach Jones can develop this understanding and show you these triggers, giving you total control of the game at all times.

  1. How to prepare for the intense physical demands of pro soccer

It should come as no surprise to you that pro soccer is hard. Really hard.

Luckily, you can get an insight from someone who’s been there, done it and received the many rewards that come along with being a successful pro soccer player.

You will be taught the actual methods used by pro soccer players to ensure that they are in optimal condition to perform to the best of their ability. Leaving you with the tools to fine-tune your body to deal with the physical demands of soccer.

Only 40 spots available, reserve yours today!

We love meeting and coaching talented soccer players and we have one intention: to make you a better player. 

So, don’t end up spending your money and your time on another sub-par soccer camp.

Come down and be coached by the best and get true value from your experience. In addition, this camp also doubles as a tryout for the academy, should you be interested in joining.
