Soccer Academy Winter Clinics

Soccer AcademySoccer Academy conducts programs through the year to prepare  players who wish to play at higher levels or who are interested in improving their game for the next season. Stay warm while you develop your skills indoors this Winter.

At the youngest ages, we focus on developing the foundation skills of soccer: dribbling, ball control, kicking, shooting and passing. With older players, we advance to receiving balls, 1v1 attack, tackling and heading.

Each skill is taught using a variety of methods, increasing the level of challenge as the player refines the skill. Eventually, the player is asked to perform the skill under match conditions. Older players are also taught soccer tactics and the basics of team play, including combination plays, ball possession, defending as a group, speed of play, and others.

Players should wear proper soccer attire, including cleats, turf shoes, or sneakers and shinguards. For any other questions contact Craig Harwell at charwell@soccer-academy.com or 703-393-7961. Find out more about Soccer Academy.
