Skills Clinics and Camps
Throughout the year, Mavericks Soccer Club ensures that our players receive the very best technical skill training through a variety of additional clinics and programs. These clinics and programs are designed to develop and improve all players technical skills which are essential to the foundations of all soccer players. Through high level instruction from Mavericks Soccer Clubs professional coaching staff these clinics ensure that our players are continually given the tools to improve their technical skills in a fun and rewarding environment.
1000 Touches Clinics
It is imperative that we do not lose sight of the most important technical skills needed for young players to develop. The 1000 touches clinic will improve each players skills and increase their technical ability. During a short period of time each player will work individually in a high intensity environment, gaining over 1000 technical touches with their soccer ball. This clinic will give each player the tools and ideas to develop their skills and ability on their own outside of their team practice.
U9-U11 Academy Training Clinics
For the Mavericks Soccer Club younger team players we look to supplement their two time per week training with an additional academy training clinic. These clinics are open to players in the U9-U11 age brackets and will focus on developing certain aspects of the game. The clinics are designed to develop our youngest Mavericks technical skills and tactical understanding in a positive and fun environment that stretches each players current capabilities and creative thinking.
Striker and Finishing Clinic
Mavericks striker and finishing clinic is designed for players 2005 and older, and aimed to develop and prepare attacking players. Instruction will be focused around correct technique alongside repetition that will give the players the confidence to score goals in any area of the attacking zone. Players will learn how to shoot with power and accuracy alongside creating space and how to approach scoring in every opportunity.
Mavericks Soccer Club own Technical Director, Robert Sackey, will host the striker and finishing clinics. Coach Sackey has a long and established background in coaching strikers from the youth game all the way up to international soccer players
Age specific clinics will be held every other Friday on Gabe fields. Space is limited and player must sign up prior to attending.
Mavericks Soccer Club offers clinics specifically designed to improve our goalkeepers game. Age specific clinics will focus on essential goalkeeper skill development alongside distribution and organization. Goalkeepers clinics are open to all players and all our younger players are encouraged to attend. For designated goalkeepers on our older teams we make sure there are weekly goalkeeper clinics and we also look to support our goalkeepers during their practices by having a goalkeeper coach regularly attend team practices to assist the head coaches with specific goalkeeper and team interactions.
