About Elite Soccer
Elite Soccer magazine is unique in making coaching sessions from Premier League training grounds available to coaches at all levels of the game. The plans published in Elite Soccer cannot be found anywhere else.
Elite Soccer: Technical Masterclass is different as it focuses on individual learning (rather than team learning) with a huge level of technical detail. The manual then provides sessions to test the development of that technique in a team environment.
The professionals who provide the coaching plans that they have worked so hard to develop do so because Elite Soccer is published in partnership with the League Managers Association (LMA), the body representing all professional football coaches in the English leagues.

Elite Soccer: Technical Masterclass – contents
The six plans that you will receive when you purchase Elite Soccer: Technical Masterclass are:
John Achterberg Liverpool - Goalkeeping technique...
“There is so much technical expertise that a top keeper needs to master. Although much of this is learnt over time, there are key elements that can be picked up really quickly, including perfecting the art of the goal kick, diving properly, catching with confidence and effective ball distribution. I also look at the art of penalty saving, revealing how the man between the posts can give himself the best chance of keeping the ball out from 12 yards.”
Nick Daws QPR - Throw-ins...
“Perfecting the art of the throw-in means maximising dead ball situations. Even at the top level we still see teams lose possession from foul throws, and this training session looks at handling, elevation, distance, leverage and trajectory, to ensure that your team can always make the most of throw-ins, both from defensive and attacking perspectives.”
Kevin Nicholson Cardiff City - On the move...
“Slick technical soccer has at its heart receiving and passing with style and confidence, and this session drills down into the heart of why the Spain and Barcelona method of play has courted worldwide acclaim. I look at how players can build the crucial technical skills that everyone who steps onto a soccer pitch wants – receiving ability, control, movement, shielding, letting the ball roll across the body, working on the turn and more.”
Stuart Watkiss Grimsby Town - Defending technique...
“The job of the defender is like no other, given the relationship he needs to have with the keeper behind, and midfielders in front. In this session, I outline the reasons why those at the back need unique technical knowledge when it comes to playing the ball, defending goal, tackling, passing and much more. Coached properly, this blueprint can inspire defenders to play with all the finesse and style you would normally associate with players further up the pitch.”
Craig Brewster Professional Football Coaches Association Member - Heads up...
“Much like tackling, good heading is something that has been in danger of becoming a lost art in recent years, but 20% of goals are still scored with the head, and try telling any defender that heading isn't important! I'm passionate about the mechanics behind heading, from biology of neck movement, use of core strength in elevation and propulsion, the physics of how the ball responds to being headed, plus of course all possible types of headers, from powerful defensive clearances to the most subtle and delicate of flicked efforts by attackers in front of goal.”
Michael Jolley Burnley - Ball control...
“The mechanics behind technical soccer played on the ground begin with knowing how to strike the ball, and in this session I look in minute detail at how the smallest changes in foot angle, power, backswing and more can produce very different results. Backed by quick, positive and engaging training plans, I factor in everything from ball spin to chipping and lobbing, examining how the world's best players are using the physics of lighter footballs to devastating effect.”
Inspire players to improve their technical ability
How much do you as a coach really know about the technical demands on your Goalkeeper? Have you ever really spent any time improving your players throw-ins or have you worked on the assumption that they will know what to do? In fact, do you even know who in your squad takes the best throws or have you just given the task to your fullbacks?
There is so much technical detail out there that is overlooked. But it is not your fault - how can you possibly be expected to have in-depth technical detail on all of these technical skills? The answer is that no one could have expected you to have it... until now.
The professional coaches featured in Elite Soccer: Technical Masterclass have dedicated their careers to making tiny adjustments to improve their players' technique. And now they are giving away their secrets... to you! Can you afford not to know them, especially when your rivals probably do? Be proactive and get ahead - order your copy of Elite Soccer: Technical Masterclass today.
Good technical knowledge cuts out mistakes
Having a sound knowledge of technical football isn’t just about growing into a slick passing force driven to stimulate returns in the final third.
The fact is, over time players become lazy, complacent, and technique fades. Elite Soccer: Technical Masterclass helps coaches draw a line under bad habits, refreshing and inspiring each player with the right methods, the best processes and the confidence to reinvigorate his game.
Great technique is as much about cutting out mistakes and reducing wastage as anything else. How many times a season does a crucial slip cost your side? It is the ultimate frustration for many coaches - but there is no reason why it should be yours.
Elite Soccer: Technical Masterclass has been specifically designed to cover the key areas of players’ technique as identified by our leading contributing coaches working at professional clubs. Kicking, dribbling, receiving, tackling, heading, diving, catching and player movement are all covered. How many of the sides you play against can honestly say they cover all these areas in their technique work, and in such intense detail? Make sure that you give your team a head-start.
