Why this program?

This online course will allow you to deep-dive in the key of the MBP methodology: the different stages of a player are divided by level of their understanding of the game rather than their age. We will discover this stages and learn to identify through our ludological test (individual and collective) how to be able to plan the appropriate training contents to help each player and the team to keep evolving based on their needs. 

Once these contents are identified and selected, we will learn how to program them over time during a whole season based on priority. In that way, we will achieve to establish a logic across the club’s structure, without leaving anything to chance.
