September 1, 2019 – Plattsburgh Football Club has renewed a full year agreement to allow our 2019-2o20 registered and rostered players in the u8-u19 age groups to have full access to the Techne Futbol skill training app. The Techne App was created to help players develop their soccer ball mastery at home with guidance and curriculum from Yael Averbuch, former US National Team and professional soccer player. Many clubs, colleges, and State ODP programs have added this great resource as part of their player registration and PFC is proud to be one of the first clubs to sign on with Techne in 2018! If you’re a returning player, your account will remain active. If you’re new, please watch for an e-mail from your team’s coach on or after September 1 to get started. In the meantime, make sure to read the letter below and click on the video links to learn more about Techne!
It’s expected that all players will have an active Techne account and be spending a minimum of 15 minutes a week on their individual training in the app. If you have any questions regarding your account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Letter from Yael:
Hi Plattsburgh FC Players and Parents,
My name is Yael Averbuch and I’ve played professional soccer for 10 years, all over the country and the world. The single most important thing I’ve done over the years that’s allowed me to play at the highest level and feel empowered to help myself improve is the time I spend with the ball on my own.
I’m excited to be working with your club to offer you access to the Techne Futbol app, which is something I created to help inspire and guide players to train on their own. For a bit more information on the app and how it works, you can visit the website (linked above) or check out this video: Learn To Use Techne in 60 Seconds.
Whether your goal is just to have fun and enjoy playing with your teammates/friends, or to take soccer to the next level and play in college or professionally, it’s important for every player to take ownership over his/her development. I hope you take full advantage of this resource and enjoy the training and competitive elements.
I’m excited to be working with Plattsburgh FC again this year!
