Recreation Skills

McLean Youth Soccer offers recreation players U6-14 an opportunity to receive additional training from the professional technical staff to complement their regularly scheduled team practices and games.

The curriculum consists of age-appropriate fun activities for players to get more touches on the ball and ultimately feel better with the ball at their feet.

Each session is devoted almost entirely to skills training, including dribbling, fast footwork, 1 v 1 moves, passing, and receiving. The program also features shooting, finishing, and small-sided games.
