Winter Skills Academy

The Winter Skills Academy is a 6 week Technical Development skills only program that will focus on proper teaching methods to reinforce the mechanics and execution of important skills used in the game of soccer.

The Academy is lead by Shawn Griffin, Director of Coaching for the Victor Soccer Club. Shawn is also the Head Soccer Coach at Hobart College and has over 20 years of head coaching experience at the collegiate level.

Similar academy programs are popping up all over the United States throughout all the top clubs and it is our goal to continue to bring the very best opportunity to our players so that they will benefit directly from the expertise and coaching we will provide.


Location: Pinnacle Athletic Campus in Victor
Age Groups
U8-U9 & U10-U11 - Ball Mastery Clinics

Ball Mastery Skills Sessions

The program uses creative teaching methods such as music to add rhythm to the training, smaller sized soccer balls for certain skills and expert advice to help make these sessions fun yet educational and productive.  This is the age where being comfortable with the soccer ball on the field is so important.  This clinic will build confidence in your child and give them the foundation of Soccer Ball Mastery.

Finishing/Scoring Sessions

This program will focus specifically on finishing (scoring) exercises and goal keeping. For the first 30 minutes of each session. Coaches will work with the strikers on shooting the ball. The remainder of the time will be run entirely to goal with finishing exercises and games to goal. This new program will immediately impact the attacking and scoring mentality of players.  The clinic is designed for Midfielders and Strikers but Defenders and more than welcome to attend.
