Our Skills School is a youth soccer program for children ages 3 through 8 years old. We encourage our players to be creative, get healthy exercise and build their confidence while learning new skills with a soccer ball. Our lesson plans incorporate team building and leadership skills, as well as involve educational aspects of childhood learning. 

Sessions are approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour (depending on the age group) and will focus on skills development using education-based activities. Our 5 thru 8 yr olds will play “the game” on a mixed team, for their last 20 min of practice, focusing on the skills learned from that day, every week of the season. We build upon the previous weeks skill development with each individual player, challenging at everyone’s ability level. 

Our newest addition to Skills School, just in time to “get the rust off” before the Fall Soccer Season, is a tailored player development program for kids ages 9 through 12. Continuing to work on the basic fundamentals and building into tactics of the game as well as team communication, our weekly sessions will help each player hone their skills while also helping them become a better teammate. Each practice will involve approximately 40 minutes of skill development and 20 minutes of “the game” so each individual player can work on utilizing their new skills in a competitive environment.
