2017 Ball Mastery Foot Skills

Leesburg FC is pleased to continue its highly successful foot skills training program in the Fall 2017 season. The program is based on the Dutch methodology of player development, which is highly-acclaimed throughout the international soccer community.

ALL SESSIONS ARE AT OUR NEW HOME: MORVEN PARK

BALL MASTERY SKILLS
— Develop skilled, confident and creative players
— Make the game fun to practice and play
— Provide a safe & educational experience that meets best practice criteria

Ball Mastery concentrates on the improvement of both individual skills and small team group play. The game is made up of a series of movements and plays involving a small number of players (1v1, 2v2, 3v3 etc.) in different parts of the field. It is when they are linked together, or broken up defensively, that these small group plays make up a game of football.
