The focus will be on mastering the core competencies of soccer including passing, receiving, dribbling, and shooting. By coupling technical training and competitive games each player is guaranteed to develop their skills and knowledge of the game. Exercises will include technical mastery training, speed & agility training, competitive skill games, small sided games, lightning, and 5v5/9v9 play.
