For players looking to get a little more work on the ball, RHSC is offering our Ball Mastery Program. This program offers very specific technical training designed to help players master their advanced ball skills. Each player will be working with a soccer ball for the majority of the session and taking part in activities designed to help them gain confidence on the ball.
Our Club's coaches, who all have experience playing at the professional or national levels, will teach individual technical skills including dribbling with speed, ball fakes/feints, and cuts and turns. Players will also learn how to beat the opposition with change of speed and direction while incorporating deceptive movements.
Players in our Ball Mastery program will experience quality training from qualified coaches who all have experience playing the game at professional or national levels. Our Ball Mastery coaching staff bring with them outstanding knowledge of the game along with extensive experience playing the game at a high level. The program will be led by former professional and National Team soccer players:
Coach Henrich Svetko, who will oversee all of the coaches in the program, played professional soccer in Slovakia and has previously coached the Ontario Provincial team where he led the U15 and U16 boys to the Canadian National Championships.
Coach William Yami played for the Cameroon National Men's Team where he won the U17 World Cup, and also played for a handful of professional teams in Africa, England, and Australia.
Coach Jacques Ngassam spent 4 years with the Cameroon National Men's Team and also played professional soccer for a number of teams in Cameroon, Greece, Belgium and South America.
Coach Colin Francis played division 1 NCAA soccer in the United States for the University of South Carolina Upstate and also spent time training with Trinidad and Tobago's U20 national team.
