What do I bring? Recommended that players bring water. A size 3 soccer ball is provided for use at sessions, but a player is welcome to bring their own.

What do I wear? Wearing cleats and shinguards under soccer socks is encouraged.

What are the Program Hours? Our ball mastery sessions use skill-based games to promote individual time on the ball and real PASSION for playing soccer.

What are Play Days? We play small-sided games (3v3 or 4v4); players join a field or start a new game as they arrive; staff continuously roll the ball into play. We celebrate goals, create appropriate challenges and make adjustments for individual players, and have seasoned MVLA players modeling game play and good sportsmanship. The teams are flexible, and staff ensure games run in a fun and fair way- other than that, we get out of the way and let the kids PLAY!

What if I can’t attend Friday Play Days? We offer a discounted rate if you are unable to attend both days.
