Skills & Drills

Training does not need to finish at the end of practice, nor does it require a full field to do so! In Almaden FC's Backyard Training series we show you various techniques and drills you can do to improve your skill from your home. #AFCBackyardTrainingSeries

In our Backyard Training series the videos have been developed so that both beginner and advanced players can be challenged by them.


Have you heard about our 'Live Workouts' with Coach Matt on Instagram? Well, we got you covered. We have all the workout videos published on our site so you can watch at any time.

I want to workout!
