About ESPZEN’s Adult Training
ESPZEN has been organising football leagues in Singapore since May 2004. Today ESPZEN is the leading football organization in Singapore, with over 4,000 adult players under management and 180 teams (Futsal + 11 a side) participating in our various leagues. Besides running amateur football / futsal leagues, ESPZEN also manages a pool of highly experienced international coaches responsible for running the ESPZEN Soccer School, which sees over 300 young footballers per week.
Based on demand, ESPZEN’s Internationally qualified Coaches offer a dedicated weekly training session for adult football players. This training does not include shuttles, or running laps, it is 100% football training using Small Sided games. Some games require players to work on passing skills in competitive scenarios, while others are more tactically focused. Players will improve core skills through the sheer number of touches that each game guarantees. At the same time players will improve their “soccer vision" - the ability to see spaces on the pitch - as each game is played in realistic game conditions. ESPZEN senior training programs include specifically designed SSG’s (Small Sided Games) that maximise participation regardless of natural ability. The competitive environment improves soccer specific fitness without the arduous training methods of old while the constant involvement develops the technical and tactical player. Technical & Tactical training, ball mastery and a relentless game-play environment will sharpen your appetite for the game, improve your contribution to any match that you play and work your fitness without the use of a treadmill.
ESPZEN training programs are designed and developed by senior coaching staff with international coaching experience. We are committed to create a positive learning environment for players by integrating and utilizing all the latest coaching techniques and modern methodologies to develop fun but challenging sessions. All our coaches are fully qualified by either AFC, UEFA or The FA (UK).
The Training Schedule
Training takes place every Tuesday and Thursday evening. For up to date information and training times please contact 8363-3154 or visit our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/EspzenSoccerSchoolAdults).
The Adult Training is held at Turf City, Centaurs Pitch (opposite Hao Mart). The Centaurs Pitch is a state of the art, 3rd Generation artificial Rhino Turf sports field. The field has been installed to meet FIFA 2*specifications. The turf pile height is 65mm, infilled with a sand base layer and rubber crub on top. Beneath the carpet is a 2cm rubber shockpad. Together these elements combine to provide a top quality playing surface. With the backdrop of former grandstand, this venue is a superb location to play the beautiful game. Furthermore this pitch is centrally located on the island, and can be found just off Dunearn Road / Bukit Timah Road. Inside the grandstand there are numerous restaurants, coffee houses, and bars for pre training snacks or post training drinks.

Most certainly, our games and exercises are designed to allow players to train at their own pace, we group players together based on age / ability in order to ensure the exercises are pitched at the right intensity for each group.

Absolutely, we are not training to build teams to enter tournaments, we are training individuals to become better soccer players and to enjoy playing the game in our fantastic location. Hence missing sessions is not a problem at all.
As the field is astro turf, we recommend you wear futsal shoes (astro turf trainers) or Boots (blades). We always recommend players wear shin pads for training.
Currently we don’t have an adult training kit, so players are free to express themselves and wear the colour of the favourite team or brand. We do of course provide bibs at all our sessions.
We recommend you arrive at 2040 to 2050 to allow time to get chance and to execute your own warm up / stretching. At 2100 we will commence the training.
We recommend all players to bring their own water bottle or fluids. There is a Giant Supermarket 1 minute walk from the pitch in case you wish to purchase some fluids at the pitch itself.
Yes indeed. All players of ages, backgrounds and abilities will learn from our sessions. Furthermore we will match groups of players of similar abilities / age at the pitch when breaking out into the small sided games.
