Skill Centre Program Information

Our Skill Centre Program is designed to provide players with a fun, social experience, while enhancing their love of soccer and continuing to teach the basic skills and tactics of soccer. Practices will be based on the Skill Centre model where players are split into groups each week, playing a series of games and drills to develop soccer skills. All Skill Centre games will follow the new Skill Centre format, consisting of tournament style games, 3 x 20 minute games for U08/U09 players, and 3 x 25 minute games for U10/U11 players.
