Playermaker 

Teams can add on Playermaker to track physical and technical performance data every session. Playermaker tracking allows teams, athletes, and coaches to monitor distance covered, sprints, top speed, etc. The profile of performance expands into being able to see how many touches each athlete has, how many touches on each foot (L/R), how many seconds they spend on the ball, playing tempo (1-touch, 2-touch, longer dribbles), etc. 

Individual Performance Training

Opportunity for athletes looking to improve mobility, speed, strength, and conditioning to now have in-house professional training. The Arlington Soccer certified performance staff will work closely with the coaches in the club to provide the athlete with the specific needs to elevate their game. This is also a resource for injured athletes to be monitored on a customized program to safely get them back on the field.

Physical Testing and Player Profiles

Having club-wide physical testing days allows all athletes to see their current physical condition and find areas for improvement. This will help reduce injuries and improve performance. It also provides the club with age group averages which can help monitor athletic development over time. 

Recovery Sessions 

Offering recovery sessions for athletes enables them to get back to optimal performance quicker and reduce injuries over the length of the season. Athletes are introduced to soft tissue exercises, stretching, and other recovery techniques that benefit all growing athletes.
