April Training Weekend

April Training Weekend

Far Post is heading into it's 10th year running it's April Training Weekend at Golden Goal Park in Fort Ann, NY. Started back in 2009, this concept was developed as an alternative to simply attending another tournament. The aim of this weekend is to be a developmental tool for our teams and players, bringing the entire club together to kickstart our outdoor season through a very intensive, soccer-centric weekend.

Players will arrive Friday evening by bus and stay until Sunday afternoon. Each team will stay in their own cabin, eat meals together on site, and participate in a number of team bonding activities. They will get 3 training sessions, an agility & fitness session, mentoring session, and friendly match. They will also have the opportunity to watch our oldest players take on the coaches in a friendly match under the lights in the Coaches v. All-Stars game.
