Kicks With Nick

Spring Skills Academy

The Kicks With Nick mini clinics are designed for recreational players to allow them to get mid-season work with competitive level coaches. Players will be broken in to 4 coed groups:
The first session (April 15) is free while the second 2-day session (April 22 & 23) is $30.

Free session:
When: 6-7 pm Wednesday, Apr. 15

The Skills Academy is an 8-week program designed and implemented to give players in 1st through 8th Grades a boost in their training regimen through ball skill repetition. The Academy is designed to encourage and boost players’ confidence on the ball by promoting a positive and structured environment to foster creative freedom and guided discovery while learning to master the ball.

The program will be led by BSC’s Youth Development Director Jason Lee on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the recreational league season. The objective of the academy is to create a link and opportunity for recreational players to practice at a competitive level with participants from their respective age groups with a similar goal. Players will not only learn ball mastery but will learn what it is like to train on a more regular basis prior to potentially making the commitment and transition to a competitive team!
