VSA is a professional soccer club devoted to advanced player development. VSA uses training methods derived from the Spanish style of play. VSA teaches soccer as a technical and tactical art form. Rondos, overloads, and transition/possession based games are emphasized daily.
Functional technical work represents the foundation for everything. From day one, players are taught individual technical skills that are functional to the game. The process consistently explores first touch AND the movement off the ball. Who is receiving the pass? Who is delivering the pass? Are we in central or wide spaces? Which third are we in? Which part of my foot should I receive/pass with? Which foot should I use? All of these questions must be asked in order to use our technical skills on match day. With these fundamentals, we can understand and play with possession based game that we desire to execute.
