THE GREATEST GAINS ARE THOSE MADE BY YOUTH PLAYERS
While ESA training can fine tune the skills of pros, the greatest gains we see are those made by youth players.
Our training is designed to turn promise into performance, isolating the attributes young players need to develop, and perfecting them over time.
BUILD SKILLS WITH
ESA training programmes are designed to develop a players ability through deliberate practice (repetition combined with intent, and expert guidance).
Our programmes cover physical attributes like passing accuracy and ball control, through to more psychological qualities like vision and teamwork. Ultimately our aim is to create complete players by providing a principled and data-led framework for development.
ESA training programmes are built to simulate real match scenarios. For example:
The ICON fine tunes the close control needed for tight areas of the pitch.
The Precision Wall can be used to enhance shooting accuracy under pressure.
The Wireless Circuit allows coaches virtually unlimited flexibility for setting drills based around tactical scenarios.
And much more. Whatever coaches want to focus on, ESA kit collects relevant data, and tracks improvements over time.
“Using the ICON they’re able to work on their first touch, their ability to see things over their shoulder, awareness of what’s around them, passing skills. They’re all transferable skills to training and games. It’s down to the coaches to be creative with it, and engage the players with something that’s a bit different.”

LOOK AFTER YOUR PROSPECTS
ESA equipment also provides a better way for clubs to manage player recovery and rehabilitation. The ICON is designed to replicate the movements a player makes in a match, while eliminating the risks of full contact practice.
Players can also track their post-recovery score against their match-fit benchmark, to assess their readiness to return.

“You’ve got to be comfortable with your touch and pass. Everything else comes from that. For me it worked perfectly for when I was coming back from injury. 100% I’d recommend it to other players.”
