Skill Package Options

Level: Fundamental

Description: A tailor made experience to welcome new athletes into the sport and for those who have played less than 2 years. We will focus on developing the techniques, movement patterns and concepts younger and newer players need to build a solid football foundation.

Ask Yourself: Do you ever lift your head up while dribbling? If no, then this is for you.

Level: Competitive

Description: Built for those with at least 2 years of experience in the sport that are playing at or want to play at a competitive level. Join us here as we focus on building football fluency, and begin to introduce athletes to more advanced movements, concepts, and mindsets. Best for those with a good grasp of basic movements looking to take a serious first step towards developing as a complete footballer.

Ask Yourself: Can you consistently juggle past the count of 20? If yes, then this is for you.

Level: Elite

Description: Optimized for those looking to challenge and build themselves as complete and well rounded footballers at the highest playing levels. We will teach you the cutting edge of the game, enabling athletes to become football fluent problem solvers on the pitch utilizing technique and tactics in high level environments. Best for more mature athletes on an elite football trajectory.

Ask Yourself: Do you feel comfortable hitting a long ball accurately with your weak foot? If your answer is at least sometimes, then this is for you.
