situations. Please note there will be no heading of a soccer ball as we are conducting all sessions below head height. These sessions are designed to create a positive and safe learning environment for the players where new skills and new friendships are formed.

In these sessions, instructors will help players create a greater understanding of spatial awareness and off ball movement. Given that these are very challenging aspects of soccer the activities will be layered so players are not overwhelmed. The goal of the week will be for all players to have a very different way of seeing the game around them. This is where their soccer instincts will begin to be developed. All sessions will be conducted with a ball below head height learning environment. Instructors: Ian McConnell & Andy Male. *Fridays are rain make-up days.

Participants will be given individual feedback at the end of the week in a one on one meeting that parents are welcome to also attend.
