    I just finished my HS football season(yea someone shoot me i play 'pointyball'). Well anyway now i have freetime after school and would like to start a dedicated training program before the start of soccer season in Feb. My goals are to increase just about everything speed, endurance, agaility, jumping. Does anyone have any tips or programs?

    To put it simply - start out with about a month of endurance training and only then start working on speed and power. You gotta have that aerobic base!

    One thing you might consider over the winter (above and beyond aerobic/anaerobic training) is playing futsal. If you haven't played before, it's a five-a-side game played in a basketball floor-sized space using a heavier (low bounce) type ball. It's great for your touch and speed of play, as well as vision and speed of thought. I played it last winter and besides having a lot of fun with it, I felt much more prepared when Spring rolled around.
