Designed for players whose objective is to enjoy Summer training at a high level maintaining a competitive edge in preparation for the upcoming Fall season. GTI is a supplemental Summer Training Program that promotes small group training settings while focusing on the individual, exposing every player (all age groups) to a curriculum that covers all elements of the game: Technical, Tactical, Physical, and Mental.
