The next PowerSkills will be two weeks before the first game of next season.
PowerSkills is the special early season training AYSO Region 104 offers all of our players to improve skills and improve enjoyment of the game. Players are grouped by age and trained by our most experienced coaches. They get training in dribbling & ball control, passing & receiving, shooing & finishing, and goalkeeping. If you want your child to improve his or her skills, there’s noting like four 2-hour training sessions at the start of the season. (Not to mention the fact that it’s really fun!)
Coaches, if you’d like to see how more experienced coaches work with the kids and maybe pick up some pointers on how to teach specific skills, this is a great place for you too. Come out and help, and you’ll learn a lot too!
See the Powerskills page for all the details.
