NVFC Skills Clinic Program

This program can be an excellent compliment to a player's team and Academy schedules.  The Skills Clinic Program will focus on emphasizing specific elements to the game such as shooting, passing, dribbling, and crossing.  Players will work on these specific skills in repetition and will rotate through the different skills during the course of the session.  Players will participate in a small sided game to end the session.  This skills clinic is a great addition to players who are in the the Development Academy.

Small Sided Games Program

This fun, game based program is a favourite within the Club's younger players during the Spring soccer season. The U5-U8 Small Sided Games program provides younger players with the opportunity to improve their soccer skills. NVFC staff coaches instruct the players during the games, helping them develop into well rounded players.

Players will work on:
  • Improving their technical skills of passing, dribbling and shooting
  • Expanding their tactical decision making skills of understanding when to pass & shoot the ball
  • Learning the importance of teamwork
Program Structure: Each week, the players will warm up by working on basic soccer skills and will then transition into playing games of either 3v3 or 4v4.

All of the games are organized and led by NVFC Staff coaches. Players are placed into groups based on age & ability to ensure that they are appropriately challenged to maximize their development.
