This Academy session, while focused almost entirely on shooting, includes rarely provided insight on what it takes for a player to overcome the mental obstacles associated with being a goalscorer. Not only will your player increase their ability to find the lower corner of the goal consistently but build the confidence to never give up when they miss the occasional shot.

This intermediate skill level based session will be focused on building the players fundamentals in the areas of dribbling to penetrate, distance passing and shooting, finishing with different parts of the body, and the always important first touch. Middle School and High School Players are welcome. Participants will receive the brand new drifit UCUSC Academy Training Jersey. Fee for the sessions is $50 per player. 
FIFA Ultimate Card Assessment- December 20th (4pm-730pm)
Have you ever wondered what your FIFA Ultimate Team Card might look like if you were put into the game? The UCUSC Training Academy wondered the same thing! After extensive research, we found a way to develop a player card for any player using scores from just 15 different drills. Join the Academy Coaches after the last day of school for Winter Break for some pickup soccer and when we call your name, come perform the tests we have set up for you so you can receive your real life player card. And as a Holiday Present to you, the fee for the event is just $2.
