Travel Shooting and Finishing
This Clinic is designed with advanced curriculums for competitive level players who are looking to enhance specific skills in their soccer repertoire.
The Shooting and Finishing Clinic is a unique program that focuses on one of the most exciting aspects of the game: creating chances and the art of finishing. This is not just for forwards; it is for any player on the field who wants to improve their attacking skills.
Small group sessions are set up to challenge individuals in repetitive game situations where attacking players need to excel: long distance shooting, combination play, 1v1’s, turning and shooting in the box, crossing and finishing, chipping and Lobbing, Volleys, Attacking heading, playing with your back to goal, and striker movement among many.
By integrating the Shooting and Finishing Clinic and Travel goalkeeping program and running them simultaneously, we are able to provide more game-realistic environments and competition for both programs.

Recreational Player Development Camp for players aged 7-14
The Recreational Camp is designed to prepare players who wish to play at higher levels of the game or who are interested in improving their game for the upcoming season.
At the youngest ages, we focus on developing the technical skills of soccer: dribbling, ball control, kicking, shooting and passing. With older players, we advance to receiving balls, 1v1 attack, tackling and heading.
Each skill is taught using a variety of methods, increasing the level of challenge as the player refines the skill. Eventually, the player is asked to perform the skill under match conditions. Older players are also taught soccer tactics and the basics of team play, including combination plays, ball possession, defending as a group, speed of play, and others. A fun fast paced program for Recreational players.
