ATHLETES NETWORK COMBINE TRAINING
Athletes Network Football Academy “AN” is interested in helping young athletes grow, both in athletics and in gaining a deeper knowledge of themselves and their abilities. We want to guide them as they improve their skills in football and come to enjoy the experience of working together with their teammates and with other football players and coaches.
AN Football Academy is a year around training program, designed to teach athletes football from the young age of 5 to the mature age of 28. Our athletes will consist of boys,girls,women and men. We will teach you the game of football through skills and drills training. For first players who have never played organized football this is a great time to see if you enjoy football while learning the basic football fundamentals. For experienced players this is a great chance for you to sharpen your football fundamentals and learn new techniques.

- Pro Agility Test ( Also known as 5-10-5, Pro Shuttle, 20 yard Shuttle): At the signal from the tester the athlete moves laterally (to the right or left) and touches the designated line or cone 5 yards away. The athlete then moves in the opposite direction and touches the line or cone that is 10 yards away. After touching the line the athlete runs back through the start/finish line. The drill is done in both directions.

The drill is done in both directions.
