Boys play differently than girls do, even at the top levels of the youth game. Take a couple minutes to watch this video from US Youth Soccer National League championship play.
It begins with boys games, then at about 4 minutes it shifts to the girls’. Watch how the girls are heavier on their feet. They come flying in with heavy leg and hip tackles. The boys are light, quick, and clean on their first touches. Does it surprise you that we see so many more serious knee injuries on the girls’ side?
Fit2Finish specializes in agility and plyometric training for female athletes. We help team coaches identify the physical challenges that are holding their teams back. Then we work on the dynamics of movement as part of their skills and sport training. Together we can bring the boys style of play to the girls side.
Your girls team can be lighter, quicker, more-skilled and in better control of their bodies. That’s a winning combination.
