Soccer Skills / Goalkeeper Clinics
Instructed by Krys Sobieski
Our soccer skills sessions introduce the concepts of sound technical skills coupled with team tactical execution. Skills such as controlling, passing, dribbling and defending are taught. The ability to move to open spaces and working together towards a common goal are emphasized in this team sport. A balance between individual play and team play are stressed. Players deploy their newly learned techniques in small sided games during each session.
Soccer Skills Cost: Free to Richardson YMCA Fall 2017 registered soccer players.

45 minute classes for boys and girls ages 3 & 4. The program is designed to teach the basics of rules, techniques and safety practices of the sport. Your child will develop self-confidence and social skills through constant encouragement from coaches, parents, and other children.
