Adult Soccer Clinics
Fall Soccer Training Programs are starting October 14th with a new focus on Player Development.
Registration is now open for these Programs. Drop in class option is available for the clinics. Details for these new sessions are listed below.
Training will be run by QCFC Coaches Tristan and Mo, who are certified soccer coaches with many years of training and playing experience. QCFC provides player development for soccer players of all ages but specializes in adult training. Sessions will take place indoors in the dome on the turf field.
Player Development Focus*:
- Two QCFC trainers will be instructing and providing assistance to ensure players progression.
- Focus will be on one area of improvement for each player, plus one area coaches believe will help each player’s growth (example pass technique + close control dribbling).
- In the first few sessions, the coaches will assess the group and create remaining sessions based on the group’s areas of improvement.
- Expectation is that players leave each session with minimum two areas improved.
- Players will be provided with continuous feedback throughout the program to ensure progress is being made.
- Some video footage will be provided to players to show progress and to share via social media.
*Provided to players registering for the full program and not drop in classes.
Adult Soccer Player Development 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 – practicing the right way will guarantee you get better.
The goal of our program is to help you have a better experience on the soccer pitch by building your confidence with and without the ball at your feet. Our coaches have a structure set up to help improve your soccer experience by challenging you, correcting technique, developing coordination in a fun like-minded environment. 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 looking to learn technique even though they have never played or haven’t played in a long time. QCFC believes in the basics mastered model in which we provide all the soccer essentials (dribbling, passing, shooting, coordination, etc.) needed to help you develop up a skill level. In our intermediate clinic, we expect our participants to have the basics mastered so they can learn more advanced skills and develop their soccer IQ (knowledge of the game).

I started out with the beginner clinic, and found that the coaches were very supportive and pushed me to do better each session. The structure of the clinics, from the well thought out drills to the fun team scrimmages, really helped me to focus on various skills.
