Program: Ball Mastery

Ball Mastery Program Overview

The best players in the world are true BALL MASTERS, including Messi, Xavi, Mata. This course provides “Deep Practice” for the individual, strengthening a two-footed technical foundation.

This high-touch program is focused on the individual and the ball. Players will learn the technical aspects of dribbling, control, change of direction, skill moves, ball manipulation with all parts of both feet, and tight space maneuvers. Repetitive 1v1 situations increase ability to execute skills in game situations. 

Objective is to develop talented players who are comfortable holding a ball under pressure and in tight spaces, capable to manipulate the ball away from pressure, and consistently create attacking opportunities. Players will
develop a more instinctive play, improvising, creating magic, and constantly running at defenders in the final third.

  • Open to MSC and non-MSC players born 2015-2005
  • Each class will be 1 hour and taught by Professional MSC coaches
  • Class sizes are limited to maintain a high coach-to-player ratio
