Soccer School of Excellence

The BFC Staff is pleased to offer the Soccer School of Excellence. The training provides high quality, player-specific training focused on improving technique and understanding of the game. This improves the player’s mental, physical, and tactical performance. Sessions are fun, intense and challenging. Every touch on the ball is calculated and deliberate. Training is tailored specifically to each player’s individual areas of difficulty. Each session will focus on improving the player’s ball skill, which will carry over in overall player confidence and performance.
