Chinooks FC is excited to partner with Balsom Sports Performance (BSP) to offer an elite training program tailored to enhance player performance on and off the field. BSP brings a wealth of scientific and practical expertise in developing both youth and professional soccer players globally. Their training approach is founded on Dan’s extensive research and over 20 years of soccer experience, including playing at the University level in the UK.

The program focuses on propulsive coordination, which optimizes players’ ability to generate and direct forces effectively, leading to significant improvements in acceleration, agility, power, endurance, and crucially, injury prevention. This approach not only targets game preparation but also includes specialized warmups and cooldowns. Each team receives a customized training regimen based on initial assessments and performance testing, continually adapted to maximize progress.

Integrated with Chinook Soccer’s Technical Plan, the program ensures that physical enhancements translate directly to improved on-field results for individuals and teams alike. Training sessions are synchronized with the soccer coaches’ weekly plans, blending physical conditioning with technical and tactical development.

BSP’s program also accommodates gender-specific needs and provides specialized support for athletes with disabilities, employing top-tier medical science practices throughout the youth development phases.

For those looking to enhance their skills further, BSP offers individualized 1-on-1 coaching sessions. To learn more or schedule a complimentary consultation, visit
