ThunderFoot Training Sessions

Take your game to the next level!  Minnesota Thunder Academy’s ThunderFoot Training Sessions offer professional training for all players at all skill levels in a fun but challenging age-appropriate environment.

ThunderFoot Ball Striking: Focuses on all aspects of striking the ball properly.  Learn appropriate technique and basic-to-advanced mechanics which will improve power, accuracy, quicker approaches and the ability to strike the ball in many different ways.  The sessions are progressive for all players at all skill levels. All sessions are held indoors throughout the Winter in the Academy of Holy Angels South Dome, 6600 Nicollet Ave S, Richfield MN.

ThunderFoot Skills/Advanced Skills: Focuses on all aspects of ball control with the ultimate goal of becoming one with the ball.  Being a great dribbler/passer and understanding how your mind and feet work with the ball are essential skills which provide creative players the ability to dictate their own decisions on the field. Our program focuses on dribbling moves, control, speed, ability to change direction quickly and gaining confidence with ball at your feet, all while seeing the field around you. This will be done through many repetitive touches on the ball: significant juggling/dribbling techniques, small confined technical games and small-sided open play, etc.
All sessions are held indoors throughout the Winter in the Academy of Holy Angels South Dome, 6600 Nicollet Ave S, Richfield MN.
