CIYSA Players Attend tryout's at Queens Park Rangers FC


 Coaches are often frustrated early in the season that players do not have the strength and stamina to execute specific drills and maintain physical and mental focus during practices, games and tournaments early in the season because their early season fitness does not match the demands of the practice and competition. The usual reaction to this is simply to have them run more in an effort to quickly increase their conditioning but this quick-fix approach does not address athletic development and does not tie the conditioning level directly to the development of the sport skills.


Central Island Youth Soccer Academy is now offering a Soccer specific fitness program:


Insure that your players are getting a full fitness program once a week and freeing up practice times to focus on team development, dynamic’s and set plays.

Don’t waste valuable practice time running laps or wind sprints trying to get your players into game shape.

This session will be a challenge to any and all players; focus will be on both aerobic and anaerobic conditioning.

Sessions will be done with and without a ball to make them soccer specific.
