Soccer Skills Clinics
If you want to become a better soccer player you need to practice.
It’s easy to find time to practice soccer as a child or teenager, but what about as adults? At Ballsports Polson Pier, we believe you are never too old to keep improving. That’s why we have adult soccer clinics where regardless of your age, gender or skill level – practice will help you get better.
The goal of our program is fun and fitness, while improving your soccer skills in a non-pressure environment. The curriculum is designed by our coaches Saleem, Sami and Mido. The exercises are fun and easy to understand. Our class sizes ensure that you get the most out of your interaction with our coaches. Participants in our clinics achieve greater confidence with the ball from the proven drills and hands-on instruction provided.
Which program is best suited for me?
We offer both beginner and intermediate clinics. Beginner clinics are geared towards individuals who are new to the game or have little soccer experience and who want start with the basic skills of dribbling, passing and shooting. In our intermediate clinic, we expect our participants to have the basics down so they can learn more advanced skills and game strategy.
