Equipment Needed: Cleats are not necessary, although highly recommended. Shin guards are mandatory. If you need any equipment, Soccer City located in Burlington next to Costco is our one stop shop location for all soccer equipment needs!

How Does it Work? Players will be divided into their gender and age divisions accordingly. They will start off with learning a specific training objective and skill for the day's particular session. After the small group work, teams will move to small sided games (3v3, or 4v4).

This type of set up allows our players to make new friends on their team, where they can experience every aspect of the game together. Through this, players learn the importance of being on a team, while also developing their personal skills.
