the finishing school

For more than 15 years, YPT has flown in some of Europe’s best professional academy trainers, from some of the world’s biggest clubs, to work with North American players.

We asked some these trainers to identify common and specific weaknesses when it comes to creating opportunities and scoring goals. We then worked directly with academy trainers from Manchester United [England], SL Benfica [Portugal], and Bayern Munich [Germany] to come up with a collective training curriculum to address and fix these weaknesses.

These trainers, who are responsible for turning some of Europe’s most talented young players into full-time professionals, have contributed some of their best techniques, philosophies, and exercises to the curriculum. We have also added input from trainers from other top clubs such as Inter Milan [Italy], Club Brugge [Belgium] and Real Madrid [Spain].

The result is The YPT Finishing School and there is no other training program like it in the world. Never before have academy trainers from a cross section of Europe’s best know clubs come together to create a training program designed specifically to help North American players be more comfortable, creative, effective, and dangerous in and around the goal.

Players who take part in The Finishing School on an ongoing basis will get better at: being dominant in the 1v1 and 2v1 situation, shooting and finishing (players will learn the difference), striking a better, cleaner ball, hitting effective free kicks, corners and penalties, effective runs off the ball and more.

It was awesome having you out!! The kids enjoyed it. My younger son said this past Friday, unprompted, "I wish Coach John could come again". Thanks again.

Definitely an awesome session I wish I had come out sooner. Like I said before, I defintely want to keep playing but it is tough to find consistent training. If there is anything you know of in the Boston area any help would be appreciated. I would like to pursue a professional career.
