The Dragon Method: School of the Regista

The Dragon Method 



The Dragon Method is the new advanced programming offered by Capital Soccer Club.  This new programming complements and enhances the experience that a Capital Soccer Club player receives through their own traditional team training and match play.


Program Description

The School of the Regista is the cornerstone of The Dragon Method and is aimed at helping develop players who are interested in strengthening their leadership skills and becoming “students of the game”.  The term “regista” is the Italian reference to the deep-lying playmaker or “director” on the soccer pitch.  Players like Andrea Pirlo, Lindsey Horan, Xavi Hernandez, Lauren Holiday, Xabi Alonso, Rose Lavelle, Marco Verratti, and others are just a few examples of players who are considered, in some form, to be a “regista.” At the very heart of it however, the “regista” is a player who thinks the game, is a leader on and off the field, and is the complete soccer player – fully committed to mastering the tactical, technical, physical, and psycho-social aspects of the game.  

Not just for midfielders, the School of the Regista is for all players of every position in Capital Soccer Club who seek additional and unique training at a higher level.
