We offer soccer training sessions and Game Day sessions.


Our soccer training program consists of two components. Participants will undergo 30-40 minutes of skills training in which coaches will help participants learn age appropriate soccer skills. They will conclude their session by participating in 20-30 minutes of a structured soccer match in which coaches will occasionally pause the match in order to enforce coaching points/ areas in which participants can improve.

Our Game Day program consists of one hour of structured match play in which players will participate in a refereed soccer match for the entire session. Coaches will use time before and after the game, as well as half time to provide instruction and touch upon different coaching points.
