This clinic is aimed at providing summer clinic play that does not compete with any existing team or camp commitment.
It has been designed to provide a skill development opportunity in a small-group environment where players get a lot of individual focus.
Your player will be in a group of 8 and playing 4v4 so they will benefit from maximum involvement, not waiting in a line, and getting hundreds of touches on the ball.
The hour practice will look like:

WHAT'S IN IT FOR MY PLAYER?
We have lots of high school age players, and sadly younger sometimes, that are beginning to age out of the playing leagues here in the city. This is especially true for recreational players.
Many love the game and want to keep involved, some also want the opportunity to earn a skill and earn some money.
Coaching is the perfect opportunity to give back to the game, to learn, and to even develop your own game given that you'll be experiencing it from a different view.
The training is provided by the Director of Programming, Lee Dunne, and his knowledge of training the coach will be key in developing confidence in the Junior Coach. The confidence is key to talk to parents about their player at the end of the session, it is also key to be personal with a player and to coach them on a 1:1 level - telling them how they can do better.
