The Travel Foot Skills, Fast Footwork and Creativity clinic will provide advanced skill training and will focus on the technical aspects of the game to increase individual performance. Sessions will be dynamic, fast pace, and will cover all areas of technical development. The curriculum emphasizes juggling, ball control, fast footwork, dribbling, receiving, and passing skills.

Juggling and Ball Control

Mastering technique and skill is a must for young players looking to increase their ability to compete in a competitive soccer environment and enjoy the game.  In addition to developing individual touch, balance, agility, and soccer specific fitness players will be provided with a framework of how to improve their individual technique at home through structured, competitive, and fun activities. Juggling is a key element to developing the foundation of soccer success: ball mastery.

Fast Footwork

Fast Footwork is a powerful method for improving your ball control and dribbling skills.

Fast footwork will help you become comfortable with the ball at your feet in tight areas, allow you to get away from opponents in situations you never thought possible, not to mention developing quality touch in both feet.


Dynamic dribblers are needed all over the field, with the ability to carry the ball past an opponent while being in control, whether by using a series of simple taps or a fantastic move around a opponent. Players will hone their footwork; learn how to beat opponents off the dribble, and how to better protect the ball.


Mastery of receiving sets up everything that a player and the whole team wish to accomplish during a match, including maintaining possession of the ball, passing, and shooting. Receiving is one of soccer’s most fundamental individual skills and requires great concentration and practice because of the countless ways in which a ball may arrive.


The best players in the world hardly ever give it up because their game IQ is through the roof and moving the ball out of pressure and into feet or space is a big part of that. You truly need all these passes in your back pocket if you're going to be a player. Learn all kinds of different ways to distribute the ball. Including playing it long, short, weighted, over the top and with different parts of your feet, like back heel pass.

(Players will be put in groups based on Age/Ability)
