Course web page | Registration

ELMHURST, Ill. | Limited registration remains for the LaLiga Formation Methodology Level 3 course, Aug. 4-6 in Elmhurst, Ill.

Through six Level 3 courses, about 900 coaches from nearly 300 clubs and organizations have been educated in LaLiga Formation Methodology. Two weeks ago, the first Level 2 course was held in Northern California.

Sockers FC Chicago hosted a Level 3 course in Elmhurst last summer, which featured Real Madrid legend Raúl González Blanco.

LaLiga Formation Methodology is a staple of US Club Soccer’s Players First initiative, which is a branded, holistic club soccer experience for parents and players, emphasizing the development of each individual to his or her full potential, and helping parents make better choices about where their children should play.


LaLiga Formation Methodology courses outline the philosophy and methods used across LaLiga to train, develop and form some of the world’s top players. There are three levels, with Level 3 serving as an introduction to the comprehensive development strategies used by the top professional league in the world. Level 2 will serve as the advanced stage, and Level 1 expands further on coaching education methods with time in Spain working directly with Spanish academies.

The 2½-day Level 3 course includes theory and practical sessions both on and off the field. Topics include: 1) Methodological Foundations of Training, 2) Structure of Training, 3) Development of the Training Model, 4) Training Tactical Concepts, 5) Training Technique, 6) System Development and Strategy and 7) Training Physical Elements.

The course fee also includes a one-year license for each attendee to Kimet Sport – the software for design, control, evaluation and periodization of training sessions used as for the course and by LaLiga academies, including Real Madrid C.F., FC Barcelona, Atlético Madrid, Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla FC.
