Skills Institute: Soccer

Seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, Holiday
Price: $14.00/p.class
Session Length: 13 Weeks

Skills Institute is a developmental soccer program for boys and girls ages 5-12 years. With a 8:1 player to coach ratio, players will receive plenty of one on one attention as they explore their potential in the target areas of soccer. Classes will be offered in groups by age and skill level. Throughout each session players will be evaluated, experience chalk talks, video analysis, and the occasional homework assignment to practice at home. Players will walk away more confident, equipped for their next right step, and ready for life’s challenges on and off the field.

This personalized, adaptive approach to teaching fundamental soccer skills, when combined with the Skills Institutes’ low player-to-coach ratio, results in a fun, fast-paced learning environment that inspires players to achieve their personal goals as athletes, whether playing on club or school teams, or playing pick-up soccer with friends.

We have also recently reformed our curriculum to the USSF’s U.S. Soccer Curriculum. This age-appropriate instructional framework helps to guide over-all player development in technical skill, tactical knowledge, physical ability, and social & psychological awareness. With this approach we can provide age-appropriate clinics and classes that directly meet the needs and of local clubs and youth soccer associations. Our classes and clinics are timely too, because we try to schedule them to accommodate the schedules and tryouts of most local youth soccer associations. That’s why the Skills Institute is a great fit for a wide variety of players, including first-time players, Lil’ Kickers graduates who are looking to join local youth soccer teams, and club players looking for a leg up in progressing to higher levels of competition.

The Cost is $14.00 per class

$10 will be added to your class fee if your child is not a Registered Member
