Skills Institute is a developmental soccer program for boys and girls ages 9-12 years. With a 10:1 player to coach ratio, players will receive plenty of one on one attention as they explore their potential in the target areas of soccer. Throughout each session players will be evaluated, experience chalk talks, and receive homework assignments to practice at home. Players will walk away more confident, equipped for their next step, ready for life’s challenges on and off the field.
Skills Institute has a child centered approach to training the young players. Providing a fun, safe, and challenging environment that allows them to develop into the next level.

Level 1 will focus on the fundamentals of player development through: dribbling, passing, finishing, trapping and how to use them effectively in a game. Level 1 will take players through a challenging 1 hour weekly session of skill building and competitive drills/games to develop self-confidence in practices and game situations.
*Some classes with larger field space will have a 12:1 ratio.
We do ask that your child comes to class wearing comfortable athletic clothing, our suggestion is soccer shorts, t-shirt, long soccer socks, turf/indoor shoes (outdoor cleats not permitted), and shinguards. We do require shinguards at this age and skill level so that everyone stays safe. To help make it easy for you, we do have socks and shinguards available for purchase.
