Expert Training for Travel Players (11-13 and 14-18)

Registration for Winter programs is open.

7 weekly clinics run by NCAA D-I coaches, professional coaches, and former World Cup players


This innovative program consists of 7 weekly clinics run by nationally known soccer experts with extensive professional and/or college experience. While our 2019 lineup is not yet confirmed, see below for last year's Expert Training coaches. Every week, a different clinician will run a hands-on training session using their own training methods, which are based on their unique coaching philosophy. The program is suitable for advanced travel players who are interested in playing in a highly competitive level. Don't miss this unique opportunity to be trained by some of the top soccer experts in America.

When a program is full, we start a waitlist. If you are interested in a full class, we encourage you to register for the waitlist, as spots may open up or a new section may be created. If we are unable to accommodate your player, we will issue a full refund of your registration fee.
