Soccer Skills School

USA Skills School

Skills School is the first step to getting ahead of the competition. Are you ready to separate yourself from the pack?

The USA Skills School is an intense ball skills development class for the serious soccer player. All sessions are conducted in a highly focused environment with the emphasis on individual skill development through a series of technical skills & drills using innovative coaching techniques. Topics include ball control, skills, moves, playing with both feet and ball manipulation. The aim is not for the student to simply be able to perform the techniques in practice - but to be able to perform the technique at full speed in a game situation. 

Skills Schools are designed to be an ongoing supplement to regular team practices and students will be required to complete additional work outside of the school to achieve maximum success.

Skills Schools are taught by senior trainers who have a strong background in individual technique and development. Students progression onto more advanced classes is dependent on the trainers recommendation prior to the end of the season.
