1st and 2nd Grade - Ball Mastery

Age appropriate skills training with ASA professional coaches

1st and 2nd Grade Ball Mastery Program


What is 1st and 2nd Grade Ball Mastery?

ASA professional coaches focus on proper techniques around dribbling and ball control, passing and receiving, technical games and individual creativity in order to become better soccer players. Players are strongly encouraged to also participate in the recreational league while using this program to supplement their team practice. Ball Mastery helps kids get more touches on the ball, get to know new kids, play with other players and work with ASA professional staff coaches. 

The 6-week program offered each fall and spring, will consist of technical training sessions, small-sided games, and play dates.

  • Technical training - coaches will run age-appropriate training sessions
  • Small-sided soccer games - Players will finish each session by dividing into teams to play small sided soccer games with individual and team focuses
  • 1 to 2 games per season vs Junior Academy teams


We are proud to have many of our Junior Academy and Academy coaches working with your kids and providing the best sessions where your kids are learning while having fun.



1st and 2nd Grade Players (boys and girls) have to be born between 9/30/2012 - 8/1/2010
