Chris Gorres on Athletic Development and the Youth Soccer Player

Feedback from our live webinar with Chris Gorres was fantastic!  If you want to listen to the entire webinar you can find it behind the membership wall at the SoccerParentResourceCenter.com.  If you are not a member (membership is $3.49 a month or $36 a year) - below you can find some clips from the hour long interview.

I thought he was fantastic one of the best webinars I have recently attended. We had speed training this morning with our boys (the coach we used works mostly with professional athletes). Chris Gorres confirmed much of what our speed coach was teaching. I really liked the advice of training during the season, the “speed over endurance” and the emphasis on intensity. If the players are not training with the necessary intensity which makes sense it then can not transfer to games.  Thanks for hosting this very helpful webinar!  - J.A.


Skye, Chris was amazing!!  Chris’ webinar was so informative and at a simple level that even volunteer coaches could understand without getting into too much anatomy. Would love to hear him again in the future.  - D.S.

Chris Gorres was not able to access his camera for the interview, but you can hear him loud and clear!  You can learn more about Chris and the work he is doing at TrainerGorres.com.
