We are excited to be running a school holiday soccer clinic this school holiday. We are pleased to offer a clinic each week of the holidays.
This camp will provide every opportunity for young players to enjoy the game that we have missed the past 12 weeks and will bring back confidence within the player learning new skills in all the 4 critical technical components of a young footballer 1v1, running with the ball, striking the ball, first touch. Along with lots of fun games. This is a camp that should not be missed.
In following best practices, we are now required to ensure we have all the names and contact details for all players and parents attending the club venue for training and drop off.
To do this, we require all players to be registered on the FFV portal, even if you have previously registered and paid.
