What Will Becoming A "Captain Eliter" Do for You?
Develop your soccer skills faster than any other online soccer training program
Rarely do you come across people that can change your path in soccer, let alone life. Mike and Captain Elite have done just that for Virgi. As I write this, she’s in a 3-week national camp in Italy experiencing some of her best moments in soccer, ever. She would not be here if it weren’t for Captain Elite.

Jump multiple levels in club and school soccer in just one year
She started training in Captain Elite ball mastery kits as a u12 challenge player and within weeks of starting the sessions, we saw huge skill development. Within 20 months, she climbed 5 team levels, then was invited to play in nationals with the soccer team the next year up. Before the end of the soccer tournament, she earned a starting spot. She’s always been a head shorter, so it was her Captain Elite ball skills training that got her there.

Prepare for high school and college soccer while building invaluable life skills
Captain Elite’s Law #1 ‘If it is to be, it is up to me’ has had a profound impact on Isabel. When she first started doing the soccer training sessions as a 9-year-old, it was very hard for her and she almost quit. Then she attended Captain Elite's winter soccer camp where met players with the same struggles and coaches focused on helping her excel. She now quotes ‘Failure is not an option. It is a biological necessity’ and I’m loving watching her development soar!
- Stephanie Smith, parent u14 starter #1 DA team in the country, Alabama
Connect with a soccer community of like-minded players and make lifelong friendships
To see my daughter's development exceed our expectations after every soccer training course has been incredible. She’s becoming a complete player with a supportive nationwide Captain Elite community and soccer skill and fitness training sessions she takes everywhere her mobile phone goes.

How do you train for soccer at home?
Different online programs exist for teaching players to train on their own at home. However, Captain Elite's soccer training courses are unique because they are:
Backed by high performance soccer research
Proven to be successful for soccer players of all ages
Structured so that players can track their improvement
Designed so that parents can support their players in their soccer development
How many days a week should I train for soccer?
On average, Captain Elite players train an extra 3-4 times per week outside of their club and school soccer practices. But remember: it's better to do shorter sessions more frequently because even professionals can't stay 100% at their peak focus and intensity for long periods of time, so the soccer training becomes less productive.
How many hours a day should I practice soccer?
As mentioned above, research on expertise development in soccer and other skills shows that training more than one hour at a time is not as effective as doing shorter sessions (30-60 minutes) and training more frequently.
When deciding how many hours to practice soccer daily, think about:
How your body is feeling - Do not train if you're sick or injured! Your health should always come first.
What type of soccer training you are doing - Pure technical training is less demanding on your body and can be done more frequently than fitness or playing in soccer games
What your goals are for soccer - If you want to be the best player you can be, play college in soccer, earn more playing time, or even make the next level team up in your soccer club, you should train more on your own at home to see bigger improvements than what you will see just training with your soccer team!
