Under 7 - 11 Skill Centre (Summer)

Our U7, U8 & U9 Skill Centre programs are designed to provide the players with a fun, social experience that continues to grow a love for soccer as well as beginning to teach the basic skills, and tactics of soccer. Practices will be based on the Skill Centre model where the players are split into groups each week, playing a series of games and drills to develop soccer skills. The players can then test these skills in the weekly jamborees Vs other clubs.  Check out the information sheet for a more detailed breakdown of the program.
