TAKE YOUR GAME TO THE NEXT LEVEL
9 SKILLS TESTS
Here at the Ocala Premier Soccer (OPS) our aim is to develop the players under our tuition over the long term. Working with a club curriculum and following season long programs are both ways to ensure players are developing but there are other areas which we as a club wish to ‘capture’ data on our players to provide tangible evidence of player progression. We understand players develop at different speeds. The Program we are going to ask our Competitive Players to work through over the coming weeks are a ‘snap shot’ of a players development at any given time. We strongly encourage all of our players to work at their game away from the soccer fields & with the time at home right now this is the perfect opportunity to participate in our Individual Player Testing Program! This is a fun and competitive way to stay sharp, improve your game and ensure you come back to the training field ready to take your game to the next level!
