Clinics for Kids

Skills Institute utilizes the same approach as our award-winning Lil’ Kickers program – age-appropriate curriculum taught by highly-trained coaches and designed to inspire kids to be active, strong, confident and well-adjusted in order to unleash their awesome both on and off the field.

Focus is on basic fundamentals of player development: dribbling, passing, shooting, trapping and how to use these skills effectively in a game. Level 1 takes players through fundamental skill building, competitive drills and games to develop self-confidence in practice and game situations. Player to coach ratio is 8:1.
By recommendation only. Level 1 grads or those with competitive soccer experience. Focus is on continual development of individual technique, field awareness, and combination play. Level 2 will further develop fundamentals, define positions, develop personal strengths and demonstrate how those strengths can be utilized to enhance team play. Player to coach ratio is 8:1.
Focus is on tactical insight and systems of play. Level 3 players will work on mastery of fundamentals, position responsibilities, tactical approaches as well as attacking and defending. Player to coach ratio is 8:1.
