IN ADDITION TO OUR SKILLED COACHES AND ADMINISTRATION, ELITE FT PROVIDES KIXX TEAMS WITH PROFESSIONAL TRAINING.
Elite Fitness Training (Elite FT), founded in 2002, has provided weekly Club Training for the O'Fallon KiXX since the fall of 2009. Each team is assigned an Elite Trainer who attends one training session per week in the fall and the spring to provide a 'different voice' for the teams. KiXX coaches actively observe these sessions to both help facilitate and for an educational opportunity. The training program is written age-specific and changes every session based on a brainstorming session with the KiXX Director, Coaches and Elite FT Owner.

Juggling is the art of keeping the soccer ball from hitting the ground by bouncing it off of one's foot, knee, leg, head, chest, back or shoulders -- no hands or arms.
Soccer juggling will strengthen a player's overall ball control and confidence. Juggling is a fundamental soccer skill that establishes good "touch" with the ball. Improving “touch” results in players making better passes, beating defenders more easily, and the ability to hold the ball against defensive pressure.
All juggles must be performed in front of the player's coach to qualify for the levels/awards:
award: Bronze Level
award: Silver Level
award: Gold Level
award: Premier-Level Training Shirt
award: Elite-Level Training Shirt
award: Master-Level Training Shirt
