1:1/ Small Groups

How Are The Sessions Structured?


Due to our high demand, sessions are typically structured in a 'carousel' format. Two or Three coaches will be present at the session and players rotate between coaches for a period of one hour. The session topic will remain constant among the coaches, but each will have their own unique drills. If you would like to work on something specific, please let the coach know a day prior to the session commencing.




What is the Cost?


The cost is dependent on the number of players in the session: 1 player = $80 2 players = $50 each 3 players = $40 each 4+ players = $30 each




How Do I Schedule a Session?


The quickest way to schedule a session is to text 518-752-3008. You can also fill in the 'Schedule a Session' form, or email james@beesterasoccertraining.com




Does This Replace Team Training?


Absolutely not. There are certain things in team training that we simply cannot replicate in a 1:1 or small group session. These sessions are used to supplement team training. If there is a choice between team training and our sessions, team training should come first.




Is There a Cancellation Policy?


We value your time and we would appreciate you valuing ours -- especially because we have many players who wish to book sessions. We want to be somewhat flexible, but a late cancellation means that we may not have the ability to fill that time slot, therefore: Cancelations received within 12 hours of the training session starting will be charged a full payment fee. Cancelations received between 12-24 hours of the training sessions starting will be charged a half payment fee. Cancelations received beyond the listed times above will not be charged. Rescheduling Policy We’re here to support your busy life, so you can reschedule your session, as long as it’s 24+ hours from the scheduled date. Contact james@beesterasoccertraining.com to reschedule your session. A request to reschedule a session within 24 hours will be considered the same as a cancellation and will have the same layered consequences as the cancellation policy listed above. *We reserve the right to make certain exceptions to these policies as needed such as a medical emergency etc.




How Often Should We Train?


We want players to have the flexibility of choice. Some players choose to train with us three times a week, some train three times a year. Choosing when to train with us is up to you, but we recommend consistency for advice, structure, and drills to work on at home.

Breakfast Club: Who Attends These Sessions?


All ages are welcome. The Breakfast club will be a community of players dedicated to improving their physical skills. Players will be grouped by age and ability, however interaction between all players will be highly encouraged. Older players will be encouraged to act as mentors to younger players and younger players will see what it takes to achieve at the college level.




Breakfast Club: Is There a Cancellation Policy?


No, for a reason. It gives an excuse for players not to attend if they wake up feeling unmotivated. We only want to work with the players serious about getting better - those that drag themselves out of bed and get the work done regardless of how they feel.
