About Skills Institute

Skills Institute is a developmental soccer program for boys and girls ages 5-12 years (we will only be offering 5/6 & 7/8 classes in Spring 2019). With a 8:1 player to coach ratio, players will receive plenty of one on one attention as they explore their potential in the target areas of soccer. Classes will be offered in groups by age and skill level. Throughout each session players will be evaluated, experience chalk talks, video analysis, and the occasional homework assignment to practice at home. Players will walk away more confident, equipped for their next right step, and ready for life’s challenges on and off the field.
