Following up from Part 1 of Individual Training. In Part 2, we will learn on how to feint an opponent to gain some space.
The purpose of feint is:
- To get the opponent caught off-balance
- To buy some space
This post teaches on the second part: to buy some space.
Ajax Amsterdam’s world famous youth academy, or perhaps better known in Holland as ‘De Toekomst’ Academy, which translates as ‘the future academy’, has very few competitors when it comes to producing world class footballers. Located outside the Amsterdam Arena, the youth academy has a state of the art training facility and 7 full sized pitches. With a massive budget of 4.5 million euros, the Ajax youth academy has an impressive 240 youth players which are divided into 7 different teams ranging from the seven year old age group, up to the under 19’s. Even more impressive is the fact that Ajax have 7 youth teams playing in a number of national leagues in Holland.
