Skills Institute is a developmental soccer program for boys and girls ages 5-12 that advances each child’s soccer skills according to his or her aptitude. Players will walk away from the Institute more confident in their athletic abilities and better prepared for life’s challenges—on and off the field.

Skills Institute utilizes the U.S. Soccer Federation’s curriculum with an individualized approach focusing on age-appropriate instructional framework that helps to guide overall player development in technical skill, tactical knowledge, physical ability, and social & psychological awareness.

Coaches adapt instruction to individual player differences. Within a group framework, each player receives personalized lessons which move the player to his/her own next level of expertise. This personalized, adaptive approach to teaching fundamental soccer skills, when combined with the Skills Institutes’ low player-to-coach ratio, results in a fun, fast-paced learning environment that inspires players to achieve their personal goals as athletes, whether playing on club or school teams, or playing pick-up soccer with friends.
