All competitive team players are encouraged to attend the Strength, Agility, Quickness clinics (SAQs). These sessions are led by athletic trainers from Children’s Mercy Hospital. These soccer preparedness drills, exercises and stretches are designed to increase the player’s agility, strength and performance, decrease risk of injury and help with mental focus.
2019 Fall SAQ Sessions
Each SAQ session will focus on a different training technique in order to help players develop/enhance specific skills. All the sessions have been developed to increase player’s ability to make better decisions with the ball, as well as to better their strength and agility on the field.
The sessions will be run by Coach Tato Chiaparro, Brookside Soccer Club’s Director of Coaching Education & Youth Development and competitive coach.
Athletic trainers from Children’s Mercy Center For Sports Medicine will be running the training.
