New Scotland Soccer Club News
The more time players spend with the ball, the better!
The New Scotland Soccer Club is excited to offer free, fast-paced, challenging technical sessions that are dedicated to having players of all abilities improve, understand, and enjoy soccer. Licensed, experienced club coaches will teach fundamental ball skills and basic tactics using drills, exercises and small-sided games in order to give players maximum touches on the ball. Topics that will be covered include:
· Mastering dribbling and passing with both feet, using all parts of the foot
