Upper 90 Skills Academy

  • Sessions are centered around foot skills and ball mastery for the individual player: Dribbling, controlling the ball, properly passing/receiving the ball, and shooting.
  • Ball mastery is the very base of the soccer player's foundation of skills they will need to possess when playing in matches. We have a firm belief in that once players are 100% comfortable with the ball at their foot, they can get to the next level in the sport and pay attention to the tactical side of the game more.
  • Sessions are designed so that players get maximum touches in an environment to allow them to work on skills they are struggling with, without the competitiveness of a team looming over them. Players should expect to receive over 1,000 touches a session, compared to a regular training session which a player might only end up with a little over 200 touches.
  • Ball Mastery takes patience, practice, oversight, correction, and, you guessed it, more practice.
