The initial Players First events/courses being offered are LaLiga Formation Methodology. Through US Club Soccer’s long-term technical partnership with LaLiga, the LaLiga Formation Methodology courses outline the philosophy and methods used across LaLiga to train, develop and form some of the world’s top players.

The courses – to include three levels – kicks off with Introductory (Level 3 in the U.S.) and progresses to Advanced (Level 2 in the U.S.) and then eventually Expert (Level 1 in Spain with Spanish academies) courses.

The Level 2 and 3 courses include 2½ days of on-site education of both theoretical and practical sessions.

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.
