Welcome to the Red Bulls Youth Programs Train @ Home page! 

We all miss playing soccer, and we all miss the Red Bulls. However, just because we have to stay indoors and practice social distancing, doesn’t mean we have to stop practicing soccer.

Want the weekly Train @ Home info delivered straight to your inbox? Subscribe here.

Program Overview:

  • Weekly training activities consisting of four areas (1) Technical (2) Physical (3) Game Knowledge (4) Freestyle 
  • New activities posted every Monday, all of which you can practice in the comfort of your own home
  • Weekly surprise guests
  • Each week, we'll also be posting some fun quizzes to test your soccer knowledge and share opinions about the game we all love

Instructions:

  • Allocate time in your schedule to practice the weekly activities
  • You can do as much or as little as you like. Once a week, twice a week, five times a week – whatever works for you
  • You may want to practice every day, but it’s wise to take at least one day off to avoid over-training
  • When practicing the technical activities, we recommend a work to rest ratio of 1:1
  • For example, if you’re practicing in blocks of 1 minute long, you should rest for 1 minute in between
  • Use the Homework Scorecard to track your progress!

Team Training

  • Teams that are members of a Red Bulls Youth Program partner club also have access to a live team video conference
  • Teams can choose to schedule two weekly 30 minute virtual training sessions:
    • Session 1: Team webinar to review the weekly Train @ Home plan
    • Session 2: Live coach directed training session
  • For more information contact your local Red Bulls partner club or email training@newyorkredbulls.com

Be safe, don’t break any furniture, and most importantly, make sure to follow the guidelines on preventing the spread of COVID-19:

 COVID-19 Information

As part of the joint effort we all have in fighting against the Coronavirus, please consider:

  1. It is imperative that all activities outlined are conducted in-line with local government and CDC Guidelines.
  2. The health and safety of each individual player takes precedent over these training plans.
  3. Many local governments have closed down public parks and gyms; therefore, the activities have been designed for at-home implementation.
  4. To minimize exposure, the exercises should be done individually. We are not recommending small group or partnered training activities.
  5. As a reminder to our previous communications, if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop symptoms – which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) describe as fever, cough, or difficulty breathing – call your healthcare provider for medical advice.
  6. For more information on COVID-19 prevention, click here.
