Two Brookside Soccer Club mini clinics were held by competitive coaching staff for recreational players wanting to improve their skills. Sessions were held in October at Swope Soccer Village.
Approximately 40 new and 25 returning Brookside Soccer Club referees attended a training class on August 9th at UMKC. Beginner and veteran referees attended the Grade 8 Referee Course on the rules and regulations specific to competitive youth soccer prior to the start of BSC’s Fall 2014 Recreational League. Beginning referees must attend the meeting and pass the referee course test in order to qualify to shadow as a BSC referee.
Our Summer Skills Camp was a four-day camp that focused on individual balls skills. The main focus was on ball control and practiced various foot skills to help the campers to increase their confidence with the ball.
