Training

Junior Soccer Programme

Training sessions for players in the Junior Soccer programme take place between 7:30am and 1:00pm on Saturday mornings at Hong Kong Football Club, between September and May of each year. Sessions are typically between 1.25 hours and 1.5 hours long and will typically include a warm-up, player briefing, skills session and friendly matches, ending in a cool down. The respective Age Group Head Coaches, Technical Coaches and supporting coaching teams will plan, organise and run each session.

Proper preparation is critical for players to get the most from training sessions. This includes eating a healthy breakfast and drinking fluids before, during and after training as player hydration is absolutely key. Players should also arrive promptly (15 minutes prior to session start) in full kit with proper boots (moulded studs, astro boots or indoor boots depending upon pitch) and shin pads, which are mandatory.

Although there are regular training times and pitches for each group these are subject to change. Please see below for the weekly training times/venues and look out for emails sent to you by the age groups Head Coach.
