Develop the Aztecnique!
 

Aztec Academy Director: Jeff Winterton, NSCAA Advanced National Diploma

Coach: Kenny Finn, NSCAA Advanced National Diploma

The first step in the Aztec Academy program focuses on technique and tactics though small-sided games. These activities are focused on the individual and serve to develop basic and specific coordination. By incorporating small-sided games, players recognize/grasp the fundamental concepts in attack, defense, and possession. Academy Director Jeff Winterton inspires players to be audacious 1v1 attackers, comfortable (as individuals) in possession in order to facilitate associative decision making that creates infinite solutions within a team.
