Adult Soccer Clinics

Soccer Skills Clinics

If you want to become a better soccer player you need to practice.

It’s easy to find practice time as a child or teenager, but what about as adults? At Ballsports, we believe you are never too young to stop improving. That’s why we have adult soccer clinics where regardless of your age, gender, or skill level – practice will help you improve your game.

The goal of our program is fun, fitness, and improving your soccer skills in a no-pressure setting. The curriculum is designed by our coaches Saleem, Omar and Sami, the exercises are fun an easy to understand and 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 start with the basics including dribbling, passing, and shooting skills. In our intermediate clinic, we expect our participants to have the basics down so they can learn more advanced skills and game strategy.
