Player Development / Training options.

ProZone. Ball Master Sessions.

ProZone is the Mariners recommended alternative to one on one training. ProZone is small group, high intensity training that allows players to perform at a high level right through the session.

By nature, much of a one on one session is of little value as the player is exhausted, where as small group training allows for recovery time. Ideal for both NS Mariner players and Northbridge Academy Players.

Goal Keeper Coaching.

Good news for all Keepers is that we will be expanding our Goal Keeping Academy in 2018 to include Keepers from outside the Mariners. So Club and other Rep players can benefit from this unique program.
