If your child is planning or considering playing on a BAYS team next year, it is essential that he or she attend the field sessions.

Where: Danehy Park, New Street, Cambridge

Dates: August 15 - 1, 2016 (Monday - Thursday, Friday rain date)

Times: 10.00 am - 12.30 pm

Price : $ 95 per child

JG Soccer Clinics are designed to teach young children the basic fundamentals of soccer in a safe, fun environment and will focus mainly on developing dribbling techniques, ball handling skills, movement, building team play, with lots of conditioned scrimmages. My philosophy is about developing young people and making them the best that they can be. Soccer is about having FUN, it is not all about winning.
